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?
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.

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.
