On diesel they check to make sure your lights and wipers work. I was worried about this before in Texas and found out they don't emission diesel, just inspect.

For now

AZ used to be the same ,, now they look for all the goodies and do a WOT opacity test


next I am sure the OBD lug will be violated

Just because I have a banner that states "Moderator"
does not mean you can't argue with my opinions !

I was looking into this a while back as I planned to move to Texas. The only regulation seemed to be that your Diesel has a Muffler. There were arguments on here that stated your turbo could be considered a muffler.

No diesel emissions testing in TX, just a safety inspection at this point ( ie lights, horn and so on )
