Texas Diesel Emission Laws

Anyone know the laws in texas on diesel emissions?
Specifically, is it lawful to delete the egr? is it lawful to remove the catalytic converter? What can and can I not do?

LAWFUL - NO. The question is will they check/inspect for removal/delete. NO

There is nowhere in this country where it is legal to remove any part of the emmisions system on any vehicle. Some are just lucky to live in states where they do not check.

In Texas they just check safeties- lights, signals, and brakes. Your there for less than 10 minutes if there's no wait

Federal emissions make it illegal to modify the emissions system. So no, it's not legal, but here in Michigan they don't perform inspections. Mine is gone, never gave it a second thought.

Like all have said, legal? No. Diesels in TX have no emissions checks. Safety only.
El Paso, DFW, Houston, Austin, San Antonio areas all have gas emissions.

Correct me if I'm wrong as I don't and never have lived in Texas, but aren't all diesels in Texas exempt from emissions checks?

Most counties don't hook you up to test your emissions but they do a VISUAL inspection. I had an older guy ask me on my 04 if my muffler was the catalytic converter. Needless to say, there is little to no training for the people that perform these visual inspections.
