Default California emissions vs regular emissions

I am looking at buying a new F-350 with the new 6.7L. I know a Ford guy in California that says he will give me a great deal. My question is will there be a downside to buying a truck with the California emissions vs buying one here in AZ.

Should be legal in all 50 states, 10 provinces and 2 territories!
Doesn't hurt to ask to make sure though.

Thats what I thought but if thats true then why does it have to be coded differently when ordering a truck? The website says " (Emission Equipment, California Req'd in CA, CT, MA, MD, ME, NM, NY, OR, RI & VT) (Optional in Cross-Border States) (Cross-Border States are AZ, CO, DE, ID, NH, NJ, NV, OK, PA, TX, UT, VA, WA & WV)" I haven't found out what is different but it seems strange that they would have it coded differently and say it was an option for border states if there was no difference.

california has a new law that requires diesel engines to have a smog pump; now I'am not sure if that is what you mean , but I think a CA. engine will produce less HP and have unfamilar stuff under the hood as compared to a truck sold in Georgia

if the guy in CA. can't or won't tell you about the emissions , I'de say 'buyer beware'

AZ, I believe the difference may be in the exhaust system, maybe a more restrictive cat or smog pump. However with technology today, you have really fast cars that are CA emissions certified rolling off the showroom floor. Emission safe vehicles suffering from power loss is a thing of the past.

If the price is right, go for it. You wouldn't feel the power loss even if there was one (it would be minimal).
