    My friend is about to register a truck he bought in another state, he is pretty worried that it wont pass because someone changed the engine out at some point and the mileage doesnt match up, and the vins from the number to the frame dont match, i told him not to worry, but he was reading up on it adn came up w/ those problems. The book is saying u have to have all the reciepts and paper work from where u got the parts from and that jazz. Have any of you registered a truck from another state in ur state? Any big problem with outta state truck having to go through inspection to get registered? I say he wont have to worry, but not sure. How's it been for you guys?

    Mike no worries at all. For CT registration, its simple. when he goes to register it, he'll need to get temp plates first (for vin inspection and possibly emissons if its newer then 83)

    When you go for vin inspection they ONLY check the vin on the dash.

    As for mileage, write down what the odometer says...IF they wonder why its differant, it must have rolled over;) But ct isnt bad about that stuff. he shouldnt have a problem...

    Btw ct doesnt do inspections for most vehicles.

    Ct only does inspections for vechicle over 10,000lbs and grey market vechicles (imports)

    When I went to PA plates a few years ago, they came out and checked the vin on the dash and the mileage before giving me a plate, but nothing else. When I came back to NY, I didn't need it inspected, I just brought the out-of-state title to the DMV and it was changed to NY.
    I don't know how CT is, but it doesn't make a lot of sense to me that they'd make you get the engine matched up to the truck unless it's 1996 or newer and the OBD II has funky data.
    My K5 had some emissions trouble on the dyno one year, and the guy doing the inspection (friend of mine) told the computer that I had a 454 in it. K5's didn't come with a 454, and it was fine with NY to think I had a big block in the truck.
