EGR Delete and Emissions

Those of you that have done the EGR deletes and live in emissions states, do you still pass? Did your 6.0 pass visual inspection as well as the sniffer? We just recently started gas emissions in our area, and luckily missed out on the diesels for NOW. It wouldn't surprise me if it's coming down the road though. I like the idea of the delete, I'm just concerned that it will bite me when emissions do come around.

If you have an EGR delete (in some form or another) and it has to be "sniff tested" you will fail.
If it is a visual inspection, you could buy the "bulletproof" egr delete, which looks like an egr cooler, but it is blocked on both ends. Install that, clean out that dumb scoop in your up-pipe (if present, i think it was 04-up), and leave your egr valve in place and you will pass a visual check. You will still fail a sniffer.

Maybe I'm not looking hard enough, but isn't there a delete plate?

The delete plate would sit where the EGR valve sits. It would be part of a total egr system delete. I chose to leave my EGR valve in place. It doesn't do anything but sit there anyway.
There are also some that install something along the lines of a freeze plug in the cooler at the exhaust inlet. Thats the reason why I wrote "in some form or another" since there are many.

I just sold my 04 Cobra that had header, full exhaust, egr delete and no cats pass emissions.

It's all in the tune. If your tuner is good and you are not throwing codes, you are fine.

I was asked to open my hood and the tech didnt even know what he was looking for. I passed the visual with the mirror as well and didnt have any catalytic converters.
