Deletes in Massachusetts

I just traded my old 7.3 for a 08 6.4 and was thinking about deleting the DPF. All the tuners that I could see plug into the OBDII port but the enhanced emission testing in the Peoples Rebublic of Massachusetts required an OBDII check on my first inspection. Does anyone have any experience in what works best in Ma.?? If need be I certainly can reinstall the mess every year but would be happier if there was some form of a perminent fix.
Thanks

Best bet would be just swapping your dpf in and out. Unfortunately... Thank EPA

I have a dpf cat delete. When I went for my first emissions test it failed because the morning I went for the inspection I installed the 40hp tune. I later found out it was because the files were gone and had to re-learn and re-list. I drove it for a couple of weeks and took it back and it passed with no problem. I don't know what the epa expects from us consumers, oil changes every 1000 miles? Turbo, engine, and every else under the sun being changed before 100000 miles? This is an over engineered, over priced POS! Love the truck, hate the smog crap that ruins my large investment. Good luck

The real question is - do they look for absence of a P1000 monitors not complete code, or actually look for the monitors to be completed?

You are allowed to fail one of two codes through the OBD II port. One would be the EGR, and you will still pass. I know people that pass running the 345 kem, spartan 275, and 310 tunes with EGR deletes.
