Concerns About EPA Compliant Engines

Question:

Has there been any independant life cycle testing done on the newer EPA compliant engines?

Some concerns I have:

1. Two strokes that are under lubed and/or too lean?
2. Four strokes that are run at high RPMs.
3. Four strokes that are turbo charged to the limit.

Response –

Thanks for your email!

To our knowledge – and we have been extremely diligent in regard to accessing available EPA test data the past two years – nothing of the sort of testing you’ve mentioned has been done with an eye toward long term compliance and certification of these engines.

I suspect it is too early in the life of our sport’s relationship with regulatory bodies to have anything more than the initial compliance/certification testing completed.

If there is any more info available keep your eye on the mag and we’ll certainly update.
