Emissions testing help

Hey guys, I'm new to powerstrokes/diesels in general, I have a 2011 f250 and I was wondering if I tune it can i pass emissions, I'm out of the Chattanooga TN area, and I was planing on spartan tune, afe dpf delete pipe, and then a cold air intake and a h&s egr delete. My question is, is there any possible way to pass, my concern would be the visual test and the dpf delete, please help me!

I don't live in an emissions place, but it's common sense that you would never pass a visual inspection alone....

I would think that if the truck passed without it, ford wouldn't have put it on there. But in a state that does test for emissions, you won't pass. Unless you know someone or get lucky

Ya know, I cam from a long line of dodge trucks before this. In my '08, I had a smarty tuner, there was a setting that only provided 50% of the fuel of stock programming. Smarty guranteed that it would pass emissions testing as long as they visual was passed. Which just required a stealthy stock looking delete pipe. I wonder if some of our mcc vendors could make some type of emission tuning, that would really de-rate the motor for emission reasons.

Most states utilize the OBDII port to verify the engine is performing as intended and not making a code. Most tuners will otherwise be using the OBDII port. Unplugging it may cause a check engine lite which would cause you to fail. If your state is using a sniffer shoved up the tailpipe you most certainly would fail without your emissions equipment on. There are some states that allow private garages to perform the testing and possibly knowing somebody or a healthy bribe will get you the passing grade.
