Looks like that industry is on the knife’s edge of being shut down by the EPA. Are there emissions regulations for the coaches? What if you wanted to put a remanufactured engine in a coach?

Fitzgerald's problem was getting too busy and catching the EPA's attention. Can still do a glider yourself or from a subcontractor. I don't believe "they" have shut down sales of gliders by OEMs.
Flouting bureaucratic authority is never a good long term plan.

Our coaches had emissions requirements when they were built according to the model year. They are still subject to those limits but not any of the later, more stringent requirements.

A 1999 engine is only required to meet the emissions requirements of 1999 and does not need to be retrofitted with a particulate filter and DEF injection. Even California will allow operation of these engines without modification.

Emissions requirements for a remanufactured engine remain the same as when the block (serial number) was originally manufactured and put into service.

Take a look at this video where they try to make a two-stroke Detroit diesel 16 cylinder engine run away. Then they tear it down to look at the inside, it threw a couple of pistons through the block.
