DHS wants to force car owners to use OEM parts and ban auto modifications




The Feds want to close down the automotive aftermarket parts business. 

According to a Newspaper.com article, the NHTSA/EPA introduced a hidden proposal that would prohibit any changes to an automobile’s engine or exhaust after it leaves the factory. 

“The EPA remains primarily concerned with cases where the tampered vehicle is used on public roads, and more specifically with aftermarket manufacturers who sell devices that defeat emissions control systems on vehicles used on public roads” EPA spokeswoman Laura Allen said.

This is about the NHTSA (DHS) forcing car owners to use ‘original equipment manufacturer‘ (OEM) parts and not aftermarket parts. The aftermarket community is a multi-billion dollar market and this regulation, is just the beginning.

According to a January 2016 report titled “Aftermarket Shock: The High Cost of Auto Parts Protectionism.”

‘Major auto companies have turned to the International Trade Commission to sanction a novel use of design patents on individual repair parts to shut out aftermarket competition altogether.’

‘Facing competition from aftermarket parts has brought prices down, with the overall estimated benefit to consumers to be $1.5 billion per year.’

The Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) reveals what’s really happening…

“Certified motor vehicles and motor vehicle engines and their emission control devices must remain in their certified configuration even if they are used solely for competition or if they become nonroad vehicles or engines,” the proposed regulation states. “Anyone modifying a certified motor vehicle or motor vehicle engine for any reason is subject to the tampering and defeat device prohibitions of this section and 42 USC 7522(a)(3).”

“If a motor vehicle is covered by a certificate of conformity at any point, there is no exemption from the tampering and defeat-device prohibitions that would allow for converting the engine or vehicle for competition use,” the proposed rule states. “There is no prohibition against actual use of certified motor vehicles or motor vehicle engines for competition purposes; however, it is not permissible to remove a motor vehicle or motor vehicle engine from its certified configuration regardless of the purpose for doing so.”

A cursory search on EPA’s website reveals this piece of regulation first originated in 2012 and extended to vehicles sold from 2017-2025.






Still doubt the Feds want Americans to purchase only OEM parts? Calif. restricts the use of aftermarkets parts in cars. And in Massachusetts they’ve finally lifted the ban allowing auto repair shops to have access to OEM repair manuals and software.

“Under the deal, all auto companies would make their diagnostic codes and repair data available in a common format by the 2018 model year, as the Massachusetts law requires.”

Across the country auto manufacturers are steering customers away from aftermarket parts:

Manufacturers have also encouraged states to pursue “anti-steering” laws, which prohibit insurers from “steering” customers toward particular shops, some of which might have an arrangement with the policy providers. 

The laws, often pushed by manufacturers, aren’t always limited to ensuring customers are able to choose between repairers, however. A number go further and inhibit the ability of insurers to even make recommendations, or otherwise restrict commercial speech.

DHS wants to force car owners to use OEM parts and ban auto modifications




The Feds want to close down the automotive aftermarket parts business. 

According to a Newspaper.com article, the NHTSA/EPA introduced a hidden proposal that would prohibit any changes to an automobile’s engine or exhaust after it leaves the factory. 

“The EPA remains primarily concerned with cases where the tampered vehicle is used on public roads, and more specifically with aftermarket manufacturers who sell devices that defeat emissions control systems on vehicles used on public roads” EPA spokeswoman Laura Allen said.
