Am I going to pass?

I have a 2008 6.4 with mini maxx off road tune and a dpf delete straight pipe. I just got the letter in the mail for emissions testing. I have the factory egr in place so I'm hoping to pass? It does not have any lights on indicating an issue. But I will have to unplug my tuner for them to test for emissions. Here in Wisconsin I can take it to my ford dealer to get checked I don't know if this will help at all? My wife is going to murder me if this thing fails I may be trading in on the spot lol.

I don't think I would take it to ford. It would have to be a smaller guy that you could give him a $20 to pass you. But idk they may pass you without the extra money. Hopefully someone chimes in from around your area that has experience with a deleted truck

There are a lot of 6.4's running around my area but haven't had a chance to talk to any of them. I know I've seen plenty with tuners and exhaust may not be deleted

if its anything like it is here in VA, diesels don't get emissions tests. its more of a formality. you're prob going to be ok. they may just hook it up to the computer, make sure there are no emissions codes, and you're good to go. hopefully someone will chime in from your area.

Usually the emissions test is a SNAP test. They quickly floor the accelerator to see the amount of smoke generated. They know that the 2008 and newer trucks shouldnt smoke, or smoke very, very little. I worked at an Ohio emissions station for years. Now depending on your states emission requirements, you may be able to get a waiver if your vehicles GVRW is above a certain number. In Ohio I have an EPA waiver and as long as I dont lose it, I am not required to test.

I just went thru this in Milwaukee. If they hook up to your OBD port, you will fail the EGR "readiness" portion of the test.

The MMax cycles the EGR on the Easy Tunes, but blocks the system from setting the EGR system to "ready".

I had load the stock OEM tune and re-install DPF to pass.

Sucks!

Here in CO, I set the tuner back to stock and switched the oem exhaust/Dpf out. You can try to pass but without the Dpf, you should fail the visual test. All emission places are different, best thing to do is either find someone in your area with experience or just wing it the first time. Even if you fail, it should be free to go back at least once, that way you'll know for sure what had to be done.

Has anyone tried returning to stock tune but leaving the dpf off? Maybe stop in the parking lot and return to stock tune then leave and return back to offroad tune?
