Alters the fuel/air mixture to that which may not pass emissions testing.

AM says their race tunes are for race only not illegal for the street. That is to protect their butts. Dan told me the throttle response is real sensitive as compared to the other tunes and your car could lunge forward unexpectedly when pressing the accelerator. The race tunes will not hurt your engine if used all the time and my car passed emissions inspection no problem on the 93 race tune.
