IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Ecotec Supercharger
Upgrade Kit, Stage 1 and Stage 2, manufactured and marketed by General Motors
Service Parts Operations has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 2004 through 2007 model year
Chevrolet Cobalt and Saturn lon vehicles equipped with a supercharged 2.0L engine.

The Ecotec Supercharger Upgrade Kit, Stage 1 includes the following main parts: A set

Kit, Stage 2, includes all components of Stage 1 and a 77.9 mm diameter supercharger
pulley. No changes are made to the stock air box or thermostat. Maximum boost
produced by the Stage 2 kit is 14.5 pounds per square inch. Maximum boost pressure
produced by the Stage 1 kit is the same as stock (12.5 pounds per square inch).

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Ecotec
Supercharger Upgrade Kit, Stage 1 and Stage 2 will not recommend tuning the vehicle
to specifications different from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Ecotec Supercharger
Upgrade Kit, Stage 1 and Stage 2, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which
adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate
this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Ecotec Supercharger Upgrade Kit, Stage 1

either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data generated on a
2007 model year General Motors 2.0L supercharged Saturn lon Red Line (test group
7ZGMXVO2.0018), certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) II LEV emission
standards with the Ecotec Supercharger Upgrade Kit, Stage 2 installed. Testing
consisted of a Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6 and SCO3) test cycles. Results are in grams per
mile with assigned deterioration factors added to CVS—75 FTP results. Emission levels
of the modified vehicle met the applicable emission standards.
