EBPV delete and Smog?

Will the EBPV delete and/or the CCV mod effect these trucks from passing smog? I'm moving to Maricopa CO in AZ and they want a smog certificate before you can register.

What exactly do they do for the smog check? Is it just the tail pipe test or full inspection like cali?

California requires smog checks starting with the '98 model year as that is when they required OBD II.

I live in Maricopa County Az and you'll be fine. Make sure you have a cat if your vin says it came factory (this is why I failed the first time) other than that they have you hold her wide open 3 times and test at the tail pipe. They will not test stacks so if you are planning on those or have them you might want to look into a temporary exhaust. As for the cat (if required) its just a visual check. ( I have 4" tube with a gutted dodge cat welded over it)

I keep mine registered in ga since I'm military and retain a ga address, but I am still required to pass cali inspection, but since mine is diesel and 97 its not required for cali to test, yes it is 1998 and up here for diesel, and therefore I have no idea what all they check, I do know that they require a carb eo number on any aftermarket part that is visible tho, and next year or 2 I will have to do my mustang
