This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on a
2007 model year 5.3L Chevrolet Tahoe, certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Ultra
Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards and modified with the Ram—Air
Intake. Test results showed that emission levels,. with the Ram—Air Intake installed, met
the applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP)
test cycle. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Ram—Air Intake did not affect
OBD II system operation. Results from emissions testing conducted at Quantum
Technologies, Lake Forest, California, are shown below (in grams per mile with
deterioration factors applied).                      |
