What do you guys do about emissions testing?

Well at the moment I'm in Florida with no emission but I may be moving out to Clarke county, Nevada which I believe has emissions testing? I'm already deleted, don't have the filter anymore and I wanna ditch the EGR soon what can I do?

If they do have emissions your best bet is to find a mod friendly emissions place and see if they will test it. If not you are going to have to find a dpf to put on to get your emissions done. EGR is not an easy task to put back to stock if you cant find a mod friendly tester. Check with the nevada group on here, they might know where a good testing center is.

Yea I live in Washoe County Nevada (Northern Nevada). You will either need to find a shop who will "pass" you (not sure where you can find one) or get a DPF and an EGR to put back on. Clark and Washoe counties are the only 2 counties in Nevada who require smog/ emission testing EVERY year.... I plan on taking off and putting the DPF on the once a year for the test... Only solution I see, as I don't know of any shop that's gonna pass you without the DPF. Good luck and have fun in or near Las Vegas....

Hmm.. Yeah that's the only plus is being near Vegas! What I was thinking was maybe get a P.O box in another county and register the truck to that, will they give me hell if the truck smoked though?

Not sure how much flax you'll get for a little smoke down there. Obviously don't smoke out every intersection though cause you'd definitely get noticed.

If it's like the California testing they will simply pop the hood and check for the smog equipment. Then check under the truck for smog equipment. Sometimes they with scan the vehicle at random for check engine codes. Last thing is called a snap test which is a quick rev of the engine twice to check for excessive black smoke from the tail pipe.

In Colorado if you have to get tested they actually run the truck on a dyno at various speeds and check for smoke. Its a pain but there is always a place that will over look lack of equipment as long as the truck doesnt smoke out the shop.
