Busted

I live in a county in Colorado that is strict on emissions. Because of this I keep going back and forth about getting a DPF/ Cat Delete. I realize I would have to switch it back for an emissions test.

Has anyone been busted on the street for using the delete?

So far on all the boards I have read, no one has been busted yet. The common thought is a fix it ticket.

worst any cop would ever do to you is give you a loud exhaust fix it ticket. thats it..you won't get **** for emissions, only people who might have to worry would be in cali, but even in NY, which is cali's ugly stepsister they don't care.

yeah i have seen plenty of trucks smoke out cops in colorado, with no pull overs so i would say your good, and if you do, it will probably be an excessive smoke ticket, thats about it,

most cops don't know much about diesels and what they should have and shouldn't the only ones that do are usually highway patrol and only a few of them are. If you get pulled over buy a DOT cop then you might have some problems

Agreed but even then i think you would really have to make a cop mad to make him dip your tank or check your dpf ect.
