DPF deletes

So I have a 2008 6.4L and have been reading a lot of forums about deleting the emissions equipment because i'm very interested in doing so. But i'm also very worried about the big fine associated with removing the equipment. I live in New Jersey and we don't have to have our diesel pickups inspected but a cop or DOT official can still give us a big fat ticket. So my question to everyone is, have you ever been caught and nailed with the fine? Does anyone even know someone who has been caught? I was even thinking about hollowing out the DPF and cat so it appears to still be functional. Any comments are greatly appreciated, thanks guys!

I have a stupid high HP Volvo C30 running straight pipe from the turbo back, and I welded in a fake 3" cat (just a straight pipe with a shield around it) so upon inspection, they would see I "have" one along with welded in the rear O2 bung even though my ECU does not use it. We do not have emissions where I live.

I saw that above because that would help, if they see you have it, they will let you go... now if they see you rollin' coal they might put 2 and 2 together.

Not have a DPF is a federal thing... huge fines of up to 10 grand. If you just hollow it out though, you will need to insert a straight pipe in to keep flow smooth.

Yeah I thought hollowing out the cat and DPF would give the appearance of having everything functional if someone were to take a look. I actually read a few threads that said there is no need for a pipe to be sleeved through because I thought the same thing, it would disrupt airflow

I know from dynos on 3" straight pipe with hollowed cat vs no cat... there was disturbance done with the gutted cat. Fluid dynamics do not lie, so for me, I would weld in a sleeve. It would be easy. Me and my buddy Mike welded all this up with SS. Was a piece of cake.

Yeah I think welding in a sleeve would be a good idea regardless. I just want to know if there is anyone out there who has actually been caught and nailed with the $10,000 fine! I don't know anyone who's been caught so I was thinking about just buying the straight delete pipe
