"The Cummins R2.8 Turbo Diesel (PN 5467036) has demonstrated through the testing procedures prescribed in 40 CFR Part 86 to meet EPA’s Tier 0 (LDT 1 and 2) and Tier 1 emissions standards (LDT 2 weighing less than 4000 lb complete weight). This means that the R2.8 generally is suitable for Model Year 1999 or earlier light duty trucks. However, the suitability of the R2.8 engine to any vehicle is the responsibility of the installer and may depend on state or area laws.  Installation of this part in a vehicle for which it is not intended may violate U.S. and Canadian laws and regulations related to motor vehicle emissions.  Check your state and local emissions requirements before purchasing."



@Scrambler - So I am quoting myself in slight correction.

I talked with my Cummins Contact(s) as I had to get half an answer from two different people on the matter.

Apparently, the Cummins R2.8L was and is meant for 99' and previous vehicles as a direct swap for those emissions based vehicles at that time or earlier as being compliant; However, Cummins R2.8 is NOT for use or sale/service in Texas or South Carolina as stated in the small print on their man site/brochure.


The engine is meant exclusively for Offroad purposes only, such as ORV or NON-registered cars for NON-HWY use.

With that being said, if your goal is to be CA Compliant. Unless you plan on keeping the Ranger as an ORV only, you will probably be hassled at some point and depending on what area of California you live in, some authorities may be more laxed or highly and overly excited to slap you around with a fresh citation booklet; page by page.

Which leaves you with a question to ask yourself, where do you wanna take your dispute; Local and State governments or the vehicle itself?

California obviously does not want to play nice at any level. Wish I had better news to report back after adding to the adrenaline surge of a possible solution.
