Getting readiness tests to run with dpf delete?

Just bought first diesel about a month ago. It's an 08 6.4 that already had from the manifolds back straight 4" exhaust dpf gearboxz delete chip. Everything works great and I'll never go back to a gas truck. Problem is I'm needing to get one of two readiness tests to run to to pass a certain test without putting the stock exhaust back on. Any suggestions or tricks? The two readiness tests not running are EGR and catalytic Thanks

There is no magic unless you find it, if you have to pass emissions testing, you probably are going to put it back on to pass.

passing without the emissions components will be difficult. Anyone you know that you can run it through first?

A lot of states also do a visual inspection so that may prove difficult to pass.

They've already visually okayed it and he said it only has to run one of those 2 tests to get the sticker

Didn't know if you could jumper wire a sensor to make it run a test or force a test with a scan tool then delete the fail code.

With the gear box z on a stock power setting and clean air filter it might pass at idle if they don't rev it.

It's got a relatively new h&s filter on it. Tried city driving, highway, and idle for long periods.

do they hook something up to your OBD II port and run the test? or do they put something in your tailpipe? how is the test conducted?

It makes sense that those two are reading "not ready" if they are disabled. I guess you are looking for a way to trick the computer. I've never heard of or seen anything. I'm thinking you'll have to put it back to stock to pass those tests.

I figured that was the case. I was just hoping there was a way around putting that power and fuel sucking exhaust for a day just to take it right back off

IF you have a drive by test like CO does you could try driving by and letting completely off the pedal when you role by the tester. I've heard that is a way to get by them with gas engines at least.
