What is up with inspections? (Texas Members)

My inspection has 2 more months left on it, but figured I should start looking into what I need to do to ensure I pass it.

Going back to stock? (putting dpf back on?)

or am I just good to go with DPF/DOC delete?


Thanks in advance!

Tyler.

I have a buddy who is real good friends with a guy who owns a mechanic shop and can do inspections too. Whats great is he has a 2008+ Super Duty with SCT custom tunes and DPF Delete, so I think i'm alright. If that doesnt work I know of another place that should inspect it. If I were you, i'd go find some small shop in podunk, they shouldnt give a ****. I need to do mine this weekend.

I've had my truck inspected twice in Texas before I moved to North Carolina, and the wife's tucks inspected once. Every time with the dpf deleted and no problem at all. But all 3 times it was in a small town. They could care less about looking under the truck. As long as it will stop straight, light, horn, wipers work and no exhaust leaks it should passed with no problems...

Texas does not have a emission test on diesels. It is just a visual safety inspection. There is a place off 249 south of tomball that i got mine done at. Looks at the lights, horns etc. and then your on your way.

You worry more than a woman. Leave the truck like it is and get them to inspect it when it's time. No big deal.

When i took my Texas State Inspectors test, it said nothing in there about looking for a CAT/DPF on a diesel. It's been a few years, so unless something has changed, they don't look for them. I don't have a CAT on mine and they have never said a thing about it, and with the lift, you can see almost all the exhaust.

There is a visual check but I believe its just for a muffler in general. Some guys know what the CAT/DPF looks like and some don't. I've had two inspections with no CAT/DPF or muffler and never had a problem. Hell, the guy I go to reports my truck as a 2007 6.0L because of the early build date (05/2007).
