EMission cutoff

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!!
Thanks
Rich

I believe the cutoffs are 25 years or 10,000+ GVWR

Yepper!

If you want to read the answer as posted by DMV then go to CT Emissions Program - FAQs - Testing and scroll down to 'What vehicles need to be tested?'

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). "

And now I know why the emission testing place didn't connect into my ODBII port.

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."

Don't quote me here, but I also believe they are testing for emmissions specific to your vehicle. Its not like they expect an 88 F350 with a 460 to be putting out the same as a 2010 Prius.
