                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—260—11

                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156 —
                                          of the Vehicle Code

                                           Hypertech, Inc.
                                       Power Programmer III


Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003; >

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Power Programmer III
manufactured and marketed by Hypertech, Inc., 3215 Appling Road, Bartiett, Tennessee,
38133 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
2001 through 2003 model year General Motors trucks equipped with a 6.6L diesel engine.

The Power Programmer III is designed to reprogram the FLASH memory chip located in the
vehicle‘s ECU module. The Power Programmer III has three stages of enhancement, 50 HP,
70 HP, and 90 HP.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Hypertech, Inc.‘s Power Programmer III that is
advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent
with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Power
Programmer III 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 Power Programmer III, as exempt
by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Power ProgrammerI!I using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Power Programmer III for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board.                                                                |

Exemption of the Power Programmer III shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for
sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.


                                                 2.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Power
Programmer II1 may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that the
Power Programmer III did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during a Cold—Start 505
Federal Test Procedure. A 2003 model year General Motors C2500 with a 6.6L diesel engine,
and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standards was used as the test
vehicle.

% Change         —38%       14%     —6%       —15%

Exhaust emissions during comparative Cold Start 505 Federal Test Procedure showed that the
Power Programmer III did not cause emissions to exceed baseline by more than the allowed
limits of 10 percent or 0.1 grams per mile on hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx), 15
percent or 1.0 grams per mile carbon monoxide (CO), and 15 percent or 0.03 grams per mile on
Particulate Matter (PM) as specified in the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified
Parts." Opacity test results were also below their applicable emission standard. This Executive
Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) testing conducted on the same
vehicle. Test data showed that the Power Programmer I!II when installed on the vehicle did not
affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

The ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Power Programmer III
may advetsely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
parameters of the Cold—Start 505 Federal Test Procedure. Accordingly, the ARB reserves the
right to conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as such tests are developed, that will
more adequately measure emissions from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate
that the Power Programmer I!I adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined
as those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold Start 505 Federal Test
Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are
validated. Further, if such test results or other evidence provide the ARB with reason to suspect
that the Power Programmer III will affect the durability of the emission control system,

 Hypertech, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of the
 vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
_demonstrates adequate durability.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive
Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part
continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations,
Section 2222, et seq.

OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY
ALLEGED BENEFITS OF HYPERTECH, INC.‘S POWER PROGRAMMER 111.           '

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be madewith
