Nice to see some life come back to this thread, I was a bit bummed for awhile with the lack of northern Nevada/ California activity.

Those with emission deletes, return the truck to its stock form to pass the smog. Once you pass, you return the truck to its deleted form.

Or get a physical address in a non emission county. Clark & Washoe county are the only 2 counties in NV with emissions.

New guy here. 2006 LLY crew cab on 285s. Just picked it up. Daily driver and looking to get North of 20 MPG year round. Came with an Edge Evolution CS so I'm currently playing with that. Rolling coal, light bars, 20s, flat bills, black socks, and hick-hop and 6" lifts just aren't my thing. This is my first diesel and I'm hoping to take it to 500K miles.

Anyone know if the EGR delete kits will pass Washoe smog?

Welcome, from Sparks!
Washoe can be a pain with emissions, and it's only getting worse. I've been running a hidden blocker plate for the EGR, and have my pcv rerouted. Also, I had to add a 5" cat to my magnaflow exhaust to avoid any issues with the visual portion. I also plan to take mine to half a million, and have been doing any and all mods to see that happen.

This truck just passed smog in Feb with no muffler so I wasn't sure how deep they look for a visual. For EGR delete I figured it threw a code and the PCV reroute I figured most people hide with black hose.

the muffler wouldn't matter for emissions, the cat though yes. I'd love to fully delete my EGR but I know I'll get called on it...

I've read the cat wouldn't matter and it's a visual so they can't even touch/knock it. I'm fine with how it's running. It's just finding out my wife saw pink fluid leaking from my truck that becomes a headache/focus.

they will glance under the truck and make sure a cat, or something that looks like it is present. Pink fluid is likely your trans cooler lines leaking. Very very common, and there are several aftermarket remedies.
