Virginia Beach inspection?

I want to go catless so bad but I'm afraid I won't be able to pass it in VA Beach, anyone know if they check them here legit or if it's a diesel it doesn't really matter or? It's an 07 f250 6.0l

Re: Virginia Beach inspection?

on a federal level if the truck came with a cat then a cat will always be required

on the state level (the one that matters because they will register/plate your truck) you can find what you need here:

Virginia Smog Check and Car Inspection | DMV.org

Re: Virginia Beach inspection?

Usually they're only visual checks, so just hollow it out and slap it back on. I haven't heard of any diesels being hooked up to the 'sniffer' machines but there's always surprises from states like the People's republic of Jersey and Kalifornia throwing surprises in every new week...

Yah it's kinda hit or miss I've heard people say they'll catch it every time and some say decades without catless being seen at the inspection

Re: Virginia Beach inspection?

I'd go by what that link 410 posted. Here in Pennsy diesels are (for now) completely exempt, not even a visual check is required. On my older Jeeps and Blazers, it's a visual check. The smog pump has to *be* there but nothing said about a belt driving it. Same goes for cats, they just have to look like 8lbs of extra steel along the exhaust but no matter of function. When the soon to be ex takes her yuppie SUV in they scan it for codes but don't 'sniff' test it yet. Any code will fail it, same goes for the check engine light being on. Talk about ridiculous, but a friend of mine had his gasser Super Duty fail because the useless tire pressure monitor light was on. Instead of taking 8 seconds to throw some air in whatever tire was low they failed him and made him pay all over again. No surprise, that was at a Ford dealer

Re: Virginia Beach inspection?

It's really odd that "check engine lights" happen to burn out just prior to being inspected????

Re: Virginia Beach inspection?

In Denver metro they will check you have a functioning light and then plug into the computer and check for codes
