Hi,

I'm Zoey.

I've reviewed your post. Did you receive a letter from CPB? Why did they stop your shipment? What are your options and what is your question?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
I’m including the letter. I want to try if I can install some catalytic and do the engine in comformity with EPA.
Criminal Lawyer: Zoey_ JD, JustAnswer Criminal Law Mentor replied 2 months ago

They do not want to release this to you because it is out of EPA compliance. You can try to petition under #1 to make a showing that you will be able to get it into compliance and then come up with the requisite certificates, but, as they warn you, you may be unsuccessful. They do not have to allow you to do that.
