6.0 emission test

Hey guys I just got my reminder in the mail the other day and its time to get my emissions tested! I cant wait. I have a worry or 2 as you would imagine and was wondering if anyone knew of a place that would test a truck even if it happened to be missing an emissions device or 2? Shoot me a pm if you could or email me. Thanks a lot guys I appreciate the help. Also has anyone had the test done yet on a 6.0 f350?

Mike

You could register it for 10,001lbs and then I do believe it is emissions exempt. I know our 6.0 dually is exempt from emissions testing cause it's over 10,000.

pete is right, the only downfall is the registration is only for one year instead of 2.

your 6.0 should be an obdII check, so as long as you have no check engine light you should pass.

Hi there Mike:

Is your F350 a dually, I don't see a Garage or Album for you to see for myself?
I ask because I'm not sure one can register a vehicle for a GVW greater than its sticker says and if you are SRW then you'd be under 10,000 pounds.

CT Emissions Program - What Should I Know About the Test - Tests for Diesel-Powered Vehicles

"Diesel vehicles that are model year 1997 and newer AND under 8,501 lbs. will receive an on-board computer diagnostic test.

Diesel vehicles under 8,501 lbs. and 1996 and older will receive a dynamometer test if they operate in two-wheel drive and are non-traction controlled. A modified test will be used if the vehicle is four-wheel drive and has non-disengageable traction control.

These diesel tests use an opacity meter to measure the density of smoke from a vehicle's tailpipe. The darker the smoke, the more it is polluting and the higher its opacity reading will be."
The place I went to only stuck a sniffer pipe into my exhaust pipe.
He thought that I was to be dyno'd but since I couldn't fit into the corner of the garage where he had the machine, he just annotated my emissions report with 'would not fit on machine.'

Hey Dave, my truck is a srw. So I guess I wont be able to register for that then I believe my trucks rated at 9900. From that quote you posted it looks like all I need to do is pass the visual and a smoke test. No OBDII luckily! Thank you for the info I will just call around and see who does diesels and let you guys know what happens.
