Brother Fined $2500 For No DPF!

My brother who lives in the Seattle area was pulled over Sunday by the WSP because his 2009 F250 was putting out black smoke. He was issued a citation for removing required epa equipment and was told that the fine would be at least $2500.00. He told me last night that he is going to see an attorney today. He is running a dpf delete with the mini max. I'll keep you posted on what he finds out from the attorney.

2010 F350 Lariat FX4 CC Long Box, Line X, Pueblo Gold, H&S Mini Maxx, DPF/DOC Delete, Flo Pro Down Pipe Back Stainless Exhaust, Flo Pro EGR/Cooler Delete with High Flow Intake Elbow, S&B CAI, MBRP Exhaust Tip

Ouch. But that's the chance you take when you mess with emission systems. Sucks to hear though.

Don't take this the wrong way but can post a copy of the citation? Through out the last few years people have posted stories just like this but nothing ever comes of them.
