Got a Question For Texas Inspections

My Buddy took his 2007 in for an inspection yesterday and they failed it because he had a straight pipe exhaust. The guy told him it was a new law by EPA that you couldnt have it. Can anyone shed some light on this

What county? I'm in tarrant and we have the toughest emission laws (as well as dallas/harris/travis/ect) in the state.


Diesels are still not checked for converters. You buddy needs to call the Department of Public Safety and file a complaint about that station.

A diesel is still a safety inspection only. I don't even remember the last time they even popped the hood open on my truck. And that's from multiple stations. I stop at whatever station I'm closest to at the time.

I didn't have a problem with an inspection here in Dallas last August. In the past diesels have only had safety inspections and not emissions.

my buddy just called another place for an inspection and told them he had his truck straight piped no cat or muffler. The guy said that their was a new law passed in january 08 stating that diesel trucks had to have cat and muffler. Just FYI i cant find anything on epa stating that though.
