Straight pipe in PA

Ok so I live in Pennsylvania. I was just down talking to my mechanic having some work done on my bronco ii.
I asked him about straight pipeing my 6.0. He said that although pa doesn't have diesel emmissions, since it came from factory with muffler and cat, in order to pass inspection, it needs to have both.
I know several people in pa with straight piped diesels and they never had any problem. Does anybody know what the rule is.

Yep!! He's right!! It helps to have a shop that "accidentally" forgets to visually check, wink! wink!

I have two stainless band clamps. I just put mine back on for inspection and take it back off. Takes like 1/2 hr total re & re.

Well he's not willing to do that. He also said that a check engine light comes on if you straight pipe it. Is this true.

No check engine light. Not meaning to make you mad but I'd get a new mechanic or take it somewhere else to get it inspected.
