I ran into a gent who bought an early 2000's bus out of California. It had emissions equipment retrofitted to the engine. IIRC it was a DPF. He was able to remove it and resell it for almost as much as he paid for the bus.
I think this is the wrong thread for that reply.

Nice to see it's a story about someone who's actually benefited the world they live in, rather than another soulless AirBnB profiteer.
