Buying a new truck and have exhaust questions

So I just bought a truck in TX (07 F250) and am in the process of getting it inspected before it gets shipped to me in CT...and I know that CT has emissions testing so I asked the salesman if there were cats on the truck and he said no (and offered to install one for me for about 300) ....but what exactly is installed on there stock? I want to research what I should be looking to buy and how much I should be spending...thanks

Should have a single cat on the downpipe. I'm more of a 7.3 guy but I'm sure someone else will chime in.

BEAUTIFUL truck bud, congrats. Bought it from North Texas Truck Shop I see? Let us know how the process goes, I've been looking at some trucks they have for sale.

With the 6.0, stock it has a single cat under the truck before the muffler and after the downpipe. IMO you should leave it how it is and you'll be very happy with it. It's most likeley straight piped or has a muffler on it. It will sound alot better and you will have less restrictions in the exhaust.

Thanks.... I'll tell everyone how it goes. I would like to leave it but I'm pretty sure I have to get it emission tested before registering in Connecticut.

Well looks like it's a moot point.... I only have to get it inspected if it's greater than 4 years old... Which it's not and every other year after... After wich I will have transfered.

is it just a visual inspection or do they hook it to some sort of machine?
