Emissions testing and EGR delete

I am planning on an EGR delete in very near future and the county I live in just instituted Emissions testing as of July 1 2010
How will an EGR delete affect the emissions?

An EGR delete will certainly fail the visual inspection portion of the testing. May also be detectable through an OBD2 check or tail pipe emission test (sniffer), though I'm not positive.

Look for the Department of Envirnomental Quality in your area. DMV dont know crap have the time. They said I needed Emission on my diesel but there were so wrong. Its any Vehicle under 8501 in weight if your GVWR is 10k you dont have to get it.

This is Virginia

Diesel-powered passenger or property carrying vehicles with a model year of 1997 or newer and with a manufacturer’s designated gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds or less

Diesel-powered vehicles:

1997 and newer diesel vehicles with a manufacturer’s designated gross vehicle weight rating of 8,500 pounds or less will receive the on-board diagnostic computer system test. Diesel vehicles will not receive the tailpipe test, fuel cap pressure test, visual component inspection, or the visible smoke inspection.

Thanks for the info, My GVWR is 8800 but it is going to an upfitter next week for rear spring beef up so they will give me new GVWR. I will definately be checking with Dept of Environmental Quality.
The big thing here is it is just another tax mandated by Federal Government so the county can get road funds
Thanks again
