Assuming you're not a commercial vehicle...I believe you'll be alright as long as you keep your throttle quiet while going through. Keep the smoke and noise to a minimum!

Here's some helpful info if you haven't already visited the site:

Don't mean to steal your thread, but does anyone know if there would be problems going the other way? (from canada to us) I have the full delete as well and was thinking about doing a road trip to texas. Should i avoid California? Thanks

I always avoid California if I can, but only because there's a lot of CHP out there writing citations because they desperately need revenue!

Not sure what part of Canada you're in...or what part of Texas you're going to...but I like states with high speed limits when I'm on road trips. Oregon has some of the lowest in the country (lots of 55 MPH, some 65 MPH)...and Washington & California are still low at 70 MPH...while some other states have lots of 75 MPH...Parts of TX & UT are 80 MPH (and one small section of TX has 85 MPH). Basically, if your route can handle it, depending on what landmarks / regions you want to experience, etc...and you want to go faster, click this link and see the limits:

I have crossed over into Canada with my old 6.0 that was all deleted. They just seem more worried about your passport and what you are doing there and how long your gowind to stay.

3.5 years in Houston and we still haven't made it to Padre...someday...I really have no excuse considering there are people from Edmonton driving down there! Safe travels!

When I die I wanna go peacefully in my sleep like my Grandpa, not screaming in terror like the passengers in his car.

Just go easy on the gas and keep the smoke to a minimum and you'll be fine.
