Emissions Testing

I own a 2008 F250 SD in the Houston area. What are the emission testing requirements for this vehicle? I've heard numerous answers to this question from you'll have to get it tested to the 2008 is grandfathered therefore will not need to be tested.

What is the correct answer?

Nitto 37" Terra Graplers
4" dpf/cat delete w/MBRP

None. In Texas, the only testing for diesels is safety only. Technically it's supposed to have a muffler. Most don't ever look.

In tx if it even has a turbo then it's considered a "muffler." It should be fine. Even the law states that. What part of Houston btw?

No.
I am a state inspector certified in OBDII and safety. It's not.

Texas Department of Public Safety - Inspection/Rejection Criteria

You know the laws much better than me i'm sure. Am I interpreting this right?

Well when I went and did it, the training book we were given never stated exhaust turbines
Government working so well across different agencies

Oh I know the governments ways too well.

When did you go through the training? I've been asked to go through it and become certified but I don't need anymore people up my butt as it is.

Back in Jan of '10.
It's not hard. Two day class. Easy tests. I got paid for it of course.

i work in colorado but have to get my truck inspected in texas but if my windows are too dark to pass i have been told by a couple people that your windows cant be too dark but they dont have to work so they say that if you roll them down and pull the fuse that you can get around the whole 5% tint failing me

Is that true

Honestly depends on the person doing the inspection. They're human and just like any other profession there are good ones and the ones that don't care much. Some will make you show them and some probably won't care.
