Crossing Border with delete?

Anyone ever have any problems with customs when crossing Canadia border with doc/delete? What is the Law in Canada with regards to doc/dpf? And I guess coming back into the US?

I'm sure there is some federal law against tampering with vehicle emission crap but I've never heard of it being enforced, atleast not here in Alberta. Only emmision testing that I've heard of is in southern parts of BC and Ontario. Canada customs probably more worried about you bringing in cheap booze and smokes . Going back would be US customs so I would like to know that one too.

Depends on the vehicle use. If your driving commercially, you will want to be stock as they will probably check you out more thoroughly. If your hauling your toyhauler or something, or just driving the truck through, it would probably depend on how anal they are that day.

Of course, once your here, that's another story. If you get pulled over by an anal cop, he could write you up for it just because you made him put down his donut to pull you over.

Your cops must be smarter than ours as I'm willing to bet unless they own a diesel themselves they would have no idea about dpf/doc.

I agree. My father in law went in and out of Canada on a monthly basis haulig campers and got inspected many times. The only thing they care about was the usual stuff like drugs,alcohol,weapons, etc... They never looked twice at the truck itself.

I have called cop's a lot of things in my time "smart" was never one of them,
Window tint will get there nut's in a knot. But a DPF would mean they would have to bend over and all that energy get's used up putting on their shoes in the morning

I agree, nice harley by the way, I wanted one for a while, but the Cabela's does the trick. Has anyone gutted a DOC/DPF? Ive been searching around junk yards for a used one to gutt with no luck so far. I don't want to gut mine in case I need it. I live in Norfolk, VA, and will be up in Groton CT next year, then who knows where. Any thoughts on this would be great, Im mainly worried about getting pulled over, and them maybe looking under the truck if they have a clue. Thanks

Oh yeah, IMO, the sales sticker says EPA fuel economy not required, so to me they can take all the EPA exhaust **** and shove it up there ***. Not sure if that will fly, but it'll be part of me playing dumb. Let's see what else I can say, hmmn I asked for better fuel economy and a new exhaust, and this is what my shop did for me. What has everyone else said that got them off the hook?
