Question Moving to IL any info would be great

1st post on the forum but I've been hanging around and doing a lot of reading for a while. In fact I never post anything because I find my answers by searching. Reason for this post is I've done a bit of searching on emissions controls in IL most of the posts are 2 years+. I would assume that's because nothing's changed, but I'd rather not move there and then have to bite off a large chunk of change altering some aftermarket mods on my truck because I assumed. County info may matter, I think it's Dupage if not then Cook. Haven't completely decided, it's up to my boss(wife).

This is the info off of the FAQ's on the Illinois EPA website.

Q. Why doesn't this program test diesel powered vehicles?
A. The federal Clean Air Act does not require the inclusion of diesel-powered vehicles in emissions testing programs. However, the State of Illinois has implemented a program to inspect certain heavy-duty diesel powered trucks over 16,000 lbs in ozone non-attainment areas. This program is administered by the Illinois Department of Transportation.


Q. Does this program test heavy-duty vehicles?
A.Vehicle Emissions testing is required on all 2007 or newer model year heavy duty vehicles with a manufacturer's gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) between 8,501 and 14,000.

I have an 05 Excursion 6.0L. From the FAQ's I know that my vehicle does not undergo an emission test.

Will it have to undergo a visual inspection? I would be moving from out of state, I'm not sure if that changes anything. EGR is intact, for now , but Cat is removed and I have MBRP turbo back exhaust. I also have an edge insight installed on the dash that I use for gauges only.

Looks like I'll be pretty close to Heavy Metal performance, anyone use them before? I do work on my own truck but I'll be missing garage space and will have tools in storage for a while. Unless there's a hobby shop at the Naval Base in Great Lakes. Anyone use that before if there is one?

Thanks for any info and feedback.

No emissions testing in Illinois. Not sure about commercial vehicles, but have never had any of my vehicles tested.

Re: Moving to IL any info would be great

No testing in Illinois. February of this year I registered my truck in Illinois and never left Michigan. I transferred my D plates (wt class/8,000+) to a different truck. I had D plates so they wouldn't try pulling the lift laws on me. Probably should go back to the B (8,000 or less) since I don't have a lift. Anyway, both were a different wt/class and I didn't have to get emissions testing on either truck.

I've been to Great Lakes Naval Base a few times for medical (Marine here) and they don't check anything at the base either, just the usual military ID, drivers license, registration, proof of insurance. Good luck!

Re: Moving to IL any info would be great

Thanks for the replies. Good info. I don't have a lift so that won't be an issue yet, who knows what I'll do in the future. Thanks for the heads up on Cook. I'll look into it more. My wife's family is in DuPage and Illinois probably has some of the better benefits to being a disabled vet. So that's why we would be heading in that direction.

I never had an issue with my lifted trucks anyway. I just upped the weight just in case. From what I hear out of all 50 states Illinois is number 1 in benefits for veterans.

Can't have B plates on a SD in IL. The DMV may let you do it but they told me that the cops can pull you over if they're not D plates. I wanted to transfer my Route 66 plates but they gave me a ton of grief.
