    And you must not be very observant: Location: Hilton, NY. Also, I find it inane that you would attempt to belittle a post that held only factual information and absolutely no indication of opinion, either pro or con, regarding DPF.

    The point of my post was simply that this vast aftermarket business and its associated support network will be disappearing very quickly. It has to has mandated by law. Consequently, do not bank on being able to avoid emission testing for inspection purposes for much longer regardless of where you live.

    That's funny. H&S should have done what Mads Electronics did with it's Smarty. Mads never sold or flaunted a device for DPF deleting. You had to buy the device and then you had the ability to download the ME (middle east) tune for DPF deleting. Mads is in Italy not the U.S. as well so they can't be shut down easily.

    I think it was Hypertech that pulled the plug on delete stuff a year or two ago because they could feel the heat. It's interesting that H&S has not been pulled from the retail market and you can still buy them.

    When I got my CDL and my truck was bumped to a commercial inspection sticker here in Texas it was supposed to be inspected for all emissions equipment. But lets just say I know a guy.

    If you do not live in a city where smog testing is done they do not even check for gas emissions equipment here for a regular inspection. Prior to doing my delete I talked to a local inspection guy and he told me it's not his job to inspect for removed emissions equipment on gas or Diesel trucks for a regular inspection. Another example of Texas giving the Feds the bird.

    I'm on a cell phone, it doesn't show locations! I came here ask for info on a specific truck not get into a diesel debate.

    Then why did you, and more to point, why did you feel compelled to comment on a post containing only facts?

    I could honestly care less about diesel emissions, that is one of the reasons I like the idea of a v10 f650. If I did buy another diesel I would look into the dpf delete and I still wouldn't care about the emissions.

    My dealer said he has not sold one yet but would be surprised to see 5 mpg out of the 650 v 10 combo. But it will spend less time in the shop

    That is exactly why I'm interested in one, less time in the shop!
