Has anyone smogged a "DELETED" 6.0 in California??

That's the question. Or anyone who has first hand experience and has been through the smog process in California?

I'd like to delete that cooler and just be done with it, BUT, don't want to be standing there with my d**k in my hand when someone says, "the computer says your EGR cooler ain't working".

I mean it's a lot work to perform twice and money to pay out. I'd like to just eliminate the problem all together. I like the Bullet Proof EGR cooler, but would much rather eliminate the whole thing.

Which part of Cali? i did smog a year and half ago and they did a visual under the hood, i don't think they would notice the egr delete, but they hooked up the sensor to the exhaust tip,and did the throttle snap test to see the blcak smoke.

i am about due so we will see.... i would like to see the reading of the smog crap with the delete....wish i had my oklahoma tags stillon it!

minimize your idle time, keep the coolant flushed and in many cases, the EGR will work just fine. its the guys that just have to idle for .5 hour to warm up and every excuse during the day that have the most egr issues. even at -30 my idle time is 3-5 minutes tops

Exactly...................I only idle enough to get my engine somewhat warmed (About 3-5 minutes max) so diesel isn't condensating on the cylinder walls when I step on it. Usually, I'm in gear, shortly after it hits high idle. I don't have a cooler or EGR, but I figure that cool exhaust laden with fuel can't be doing that VGT Turbo any good!

In Cali, unless you have a "friend" or the techs at the smog check are lazy, ignorant, or apathetic, you will need your EGR cooler and cat.

There are also many counties in Cali that only require a smog certification only on transfer of ownership. For example, I live next to one of those counties and some people I know register their vehicles with a friends address or get a PO Box in the county next door. Just a thought.

There is visual for the cat, egr vavle, egr cooler, CCV.

NORMALY, you will not pass if one of those is not on the truck.

I blocked my egr cooler 100% and the CEL and codes are blocked by the innovative tuning. I have my egr vavle still on the truck plugged in but it is also off(closed) form the tuning.




Look at my sig for a non-tuned/stock truck what wants to do an EGR mod.
