Asked them what they were looking at during inspection. They said they had to check CCV and CAT. didn't even look at EGR or seem to care about DPF.
I have noticed that when I first started having to do emissions, half the time they didn't know what to check for. My last test (in February) they checked for everything (EGR, CCV, matching VIN's, etc) and this is the first time they checked for the CCV. (For those that are asking about CCV, they are ensuring that it is hooked up and not evacuating to the atmosphere.) Based on my results, they will continue to get better at knowing what to look for. Also, our emissions tests have to be done annually so they are only good for one year.
***Edit: Just wanted to mention that I have a 6.0 so it's been tested for several years now***
