Hi all, what is the emission cutoff year for vehicles here in Connecticut? Gettting an 88 F350 and there is no way this thing would pass emssions!! With a 460 and it being the first yr for fuel injection, there is 1000 vacumn lines all over the engine compartment!!
There the link CT Emissions Program - When Do I Get Tested - Exempt Vehicles gives the answer:
"A motor vehicle twenty five-years old or older, (R.C.S.A 14-164c-2a "twenty-five or more years ago" shall mean the number of years arrived at by subtracting the model year of the motor vehicle seeking the exemption from the current calendar year). "
"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."
