Emissions/Smog checks in TX question
For the members in TX. I am likely getting a job transfer from CA to TX. I seem to remember from reading the different CA smog check posts that TX does some sort of emissions checks for diesels but there were not a lot of details.
Can anybody tell me what is all involved? Visual checks (cat, EGR, excessive smoke)? Opacity? Hooking up to the OBD port? Do aftermarket parts need something like a CARB executive order to be legal?
I plan on putting a TB exhaust on my truck next weekend. I will be deleting the cat and muffler. I was going to set it up so I can swap the cat back in for the smog check in Cali but if you don't need it in TX, why bother. I ask not just for the exhaust but for future mods also. Thanks.
