So I'm assuming that you might be transferring to Luke AFB; that's down the road from my house... That's going to be quite the climate change from Alaska!

Anyway, while emissions here just started out as another money maker for the state, they have recently gotten much more strict about compliance. They perform emissions tests EVERY year for diesel vehicles that are >5 years old, by performing a visual inspection as well as a "snap test" where they have you mash the accelerator up to the rev limiter in park and they measure the smoke. Also, they have a compliance phone number, so if someone sees you blowing smoke and they report you, you could get a notice in the mail and/or a fine.

I have heard that some emissions stations aren't in strict compliance with the statutes, but every time I have gone, I feel like I have been violated...

IMO emissions are going to be a REAL issue over the next couple years. Its not going to get easier only harder! As far as your truck if it has a DPF or CAT delete it will fail a visual inspection... If they check it. Seems like every emission station does things a little different. I have had trucks fail for no cat, then had trucks pass with straight pipe, so its a crapshoot. Chances are though that you will have to have DPF on at least when you go thru emissions.

Im Tuned and Deleted and I have an 08... when I have to run it though for emissions I kept my DPF and Cat so I can swap it back in.... I have did this with my 96 PSD as well.... put it in and pass and then come home and take it back off... hahahah
I do the samething with my 951.... but its funny to watch them try and drive that on the dyno cuz it hit boost pretty hard if your not ready for it...hahaha
You will have no problem here about ppl calling the "Smoke Hotline" I use to drive to North Scottsdale to work from South Tempe for work (30 miles one way) and I NEVER got anything in the mail saying anything about my smoking....
Oh yeah and its only REALLY HOT 3 months out of the year...... the rest of the year its just HOT....
