anyone in washington state have issues with law and dpf delete

Hello!
Originally posted in the 6.4 performance section and it was suggested to post the question here.

Just wondering if anyone has had trouble in Wa after their dpf delete. I have.been planning on a 5 in exhaust with mini maxx but now I might be moving to Washington state up near Seattle (working in Bellvue)and I'm worried about the huge fines reported on here awhile back.

So I guess my question is if you live there and have done the delete have you run into problems with law? I think the 6.4's would be the vehicles more closely looked at because of the emissions crap on the vehicle.

Another thread I was reading someone said that there were diesel inspections checkpoints set up sometimes in Wa.

Thanks for any info.

I have never seen an inspection station. It will depend on what county you live in. Some do smog checks and some don't. If you are like me and live in a smog free county you don't have anything to worry about.

Can you just hollow out the DPF? Making it look like you have one?

My truck is an 08 6.4 liter, I have heard of someone on the forum running with a hollowed out dpf so I can be done. I haven't taken mine off so I have no idea what it would take to do it. The best option may be for me to keep the stock exhaust and look into hollowing it out. Wont run as well as a new exhaust but has to be better than having the dpf on there.

I just don't want a 10k fine for having taken off the emissions crap on the pickup, but I'm tired of getting 10.5 mpg in the city.
Funny how in an effort to clean up particulate pollution the fix is to kill fuel mileage and reliability.

I'm sure they sell aftermarket exhausts with fake DPFs! There is a need and a demand for it after all. Isn't that the point of capitalism?

If there isn't I suppose you can always start a new business!

I'm running a mini and a 4in deleate pipe and have the DPF in storage for if I have to put it back in. i'm up in arlington tho and don't have to get smoged. You will be in king county and will have to have it checked, also if you run deleated just be very wise about the skinny peddle and yopu will be ok for normal driving. Its the guys that go around blowing tons of smoke that get the attention. I can drive the HD300 tune and have very little to no smoke most of the time. But on the other hand I can make a 500hp 12v cummins look clean if I want to.

Did you also put an intake on as well? Did you notice a bump in mpg with just the delete pipe? Performance better too I suppose? Maybe that's a better option for me than a full exhaust especially if I have to get emissions checked.

I'm wondering if I can find a place outside King county to live so I don't have to get emissions done. I just don't know much about that area yet it might be too far. I will actually be in Bellevue.

Yea I have the dry filter setup from AFE. There was some MPG gains much not as much as you will see. My f450 weights in at close to 10k empty and I have a ton of rotating mass so for me the gains where minimal. I also drive it like its a 3500 pound hotrod so you have to consider that as well H&S forgot to tell me that there programer has a rear steer option built into it. You have to also remember the the stock exh is 3.5in so going to a 4in exh isn't going to get you much. You will get improvements just by turning off the regen cycle and opening up the airflow side of things.

I live in SW Wash (Clark County) and they didnt even do a visual inspection on my 06, they plug into my OBD2 port have you keep it in park do 5 from idle to rev limiter pulls and your done, i would say if you have no codes and little to no smoke you would be safe. Patrick
