early 99 with a cat?

The subjest of trucks being built with or without a cat from FoMoCo came up in another thread so now I'm confused

I'm pretty sure that my early 99 (10/98) had a muffler and cat ...I deleted the muffler but the cat is still there

What trucks have cats which don't?

Early's and Canada's have cats. I believe all the Cali models have cats as well. Mine is an early 99 Cali model, and when I bought there was a piece of straight pipe crudely welded in where a cat should have been.

Send Ed, FTEPARTSGUY, your VIN and he can send you a build sheet. On that, it will state if your rig is Cali emissions or not. You can also look for a sticker on the underside of the hood that says "CATALYST" and the passenger side valve cover sticker will also have some info.

Take a look at the sticker on the under side of the hood. There should be a sticker that has the word catalyst or something similar on it. I scratched mine off when I bought my cat-delete pipe from Ford. If they start testing, I'm going to be pissed. That was one of the major selling points for me buying a diesel in the 1st place!

Hand shakers came with them too. Easy way to determine the CA model would be having a GPCM instead of a GPR. Or if you have a CAT and no hand shaker.

The exception there is the early 99- still uses a GPR, but it's a different GPR than the 49 state models. I realize he's talking about an 02 there, but I figured I'd throw the info out there "for the greater good"

I kept mine when it came off just for this very reason. Really though, get some thin 5 or 6 inch pipe and make something that looks like a cat, hose it with water so it will rust and I am willing to be that you'd never fail an inspection for a cat. Passing actual emisions should be no problem as well. Most are allowed up to 40percent opacity. Last time I had to do one I left the chip on just to see. Made it register around 7 percent. In stock tuning, maybe 2 percent.
