OPTIONAL 50 STATE LEGAL CONVERSIONS
Why a CARB “Legal Conversion” is Important to Consumers?
The short answer is that a Bureau of Automotive Repair (B.A.R.) label keeps your vehicle in compliance with regulatory bodies. 50 state legal conversions come with assurance knowing you are covered when you go to get your routine Smog check in California, or other counties that have adopted CARB’s standards.
The California Air Resources Board (CARB) requires all OEM emissions-related components for on-road use in California to obtain a “certification” for engine conversions. Your vehicle must be assigned a “ Bureau of Automotive Repair” (B.A.R.) Label, indicating successful completion of emissions and related tests in an authorized Smog testing facility. Failure to obtain a B.A.R. Label can result in fines and the inability of a vehicle to pass routine “Inspection and Maintenance” (I&M) tests, conducted by the state of CA. I&M tests are also being required in other states and major air quality regions throughout the country when registering, re-registering or transferring title of a vehicle. Predator Inc. has made significant investment in both time and resources to make sure your vehicle is covered.

In fact, Predator Inc. is able to meet these requirements while delivering the performance benefits for which our Duramax conversions are widely known for.
