cat?

I am really wanting to upgrade my exaust.I have a 2005 f350 srwsc.My question is I see many of you running a straight pipe system with no cat.How much trouble can you get in for not having one since it is illegal.I live in nj and went to the mv for inspection and they told me I do not have to get an inspection bacause I was over a certain weight and a commercial vehicle.So does this mean I don't have to worry?But what if they have a roadside inspection,is there a big fine?..I think I may go with a cat but no muffler.Any info would be great,,thx

it is a felony to remove the catalytic converter in california. I'm 99% sure. If my truck got inspected at all, ever, I'd throw a hollow cat on it.

Ive heard a few things but needless to say with the budget cuts with the state i wouldnt worry about DMV checking pick up trucks for Cats. There more concerned with the big rigs. I pass mobile inspection stations roughly once or twice a week and have never been flagged down. If anything they would dip your tank. What part of new jersey are you from?, im from the trenton area.

I live in NJ AND I removed the cat. I am due for inspection next month so I will find out soon. My truck is also a 97 F-350 crew cab but last time I went they did not check emissions on my truck.This will be the first time with no cat

Just take it off and hollow it out if you are worried, its easy to do and then you will have the looks of stock exhaust and the sound and performance of it being open.

Inspection

Yes i do if im correct if you register your truck commercially in New Jersey and your GVW is over 10,000 you do not have to inspect your truck. Its called self inspection. If you know any troopers i would ask them because they know every in and out with NJ Motor vehicle laws. I used to be from Perth Amboy Middlesex county but moved south, to congested and crowded haha.
