EGR delete and passing Oregon DEQ?

Hi all,
I've been looking at used Ford diesel trucks and most seemed to be "tuned" and or have an "egr delete" applied. I understand what that is, but I cant find specific info on what that means when registering and getting past DEQ (Department Of Environmental Quality) in oregon?

How does having a EGR delete impact DEQ certifications?

Thanks

Umm.. if the F250 GVW is 8,800, then according to the way I read it, you do need DEQ... The statement says 8,500 or less. 8,800 is HIGHER. Unless I missing something.

If GVW is under 8500 then a test is required.
This truck GVW is OVER 8500 so a test is NOT required.
basically anything over GVW 8500 is "to big to test"

EGR delete and passing Oregon DEQ?

With My 00 Ford diesel . The state always sent me my renewal saying I needed a deq test same as all the cars and trucks under 8500. I didn’t ... when I called to complain they always said just write that’s it’s exempt and send the money. Never could get them to correctly list in 12 years I owned the truck!

Things have improved. I had the same issue while registering our 33K GVWR coach recently. Called DMV and spoke with a helpful person. It turns out they didnít have the correct chassis information on file. Problem solved in less than 10 minutes.

Wheat is correct, it seems to me that on the 2001 2500, I needed to file a form. I don;t recall doing that with the 2016, BUT because I bought in northern Washington State, unlike the dealers in southern Washington that make many sales to Oregonians, they were only able to provide us a Washington 3 day trip permit, then we could only get two 15 day trip permits. we were at the end of the second permit, when they started issuing the Grey Whale plates, so crazy day at DMV getting plates, and getting set as over 8,500# GVWR diesel.
So nice I renewed tabs last year by mail!!

Two things:

I am thinking a EGR delete is good thing but a DPF delete would be better. I had a 2012 Power Stroke for 6.5 years with zero problems with full emissions. The regens were painful when towing. This dually was used 60% towing a 5th wheel. 40% was driving solo.

Registration by mail - in the east we have been doing that for years. I want to say since the late 1980's. Now we can register for two years which I do...yippee.

Oregon has been two year renewal since before we moved here in 97. The mail in didnít matter as before, in a couple areas had to pass DEQ first, state stations on a pass would issues tabs, one stop shopping.

thanks for all the comments. I picked up a 2004 F250 CC bullet proofed and running strong. DEQ was not a factor in my choice ;-)
