Wow-even in the inspection happy state of New Jersey light duty diesels (anything under 10,000 lbs GVWR) don't get any sort of emissions check. I'm surprised that a western state would require it-are you sure this guy isn't just talking out his a**? I used to run into that crap all the time in New Jersey. A lot of the drones working the lines were paid $10.00 an hour and couldn't tell a spark plug from a lug nut but they all thought they were ASE master techs. And for the record my truck is an early year '03 7.3L-no kitty from the factory.
