39516 of the Health and SafetycOde and Executive Orde’ G—45—5;

Mastermind manufacturer.                                   °_          _|               ;        ul

use of this Nitrous Mastermind may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.                                                                                                                                                     ‘

This Executive Order is granted based on results if erissions tests
were conducted in accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75 Fsijeral Test Procedure.
However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist ts believe that use of
the Nitrous Mastermind may adversely affect emissions osf motor vehicles when
operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously
prescribed test procedures.   Accordingly, the ARB reserves the right to
conduct additional emission tests,                                                  in}the"tuture,ias such tests are
developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle
phases.                  If such test results demcnstrate that the Nitrous Mastermind
adversely affect emissions during cff—~cycle conditions (defined as those
conditions which are beyond the permmeters of the Coli—Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure}), this Executive Orjer shall be effecrt.vely rescinded as of
the date the test results are validated.   Furthet, xf such test            i
