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 I!I
manufactured and marketed by Hypertech, Inc., 3215 Appling Road, Bartlett, 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
the General Motors vehicles listed in Exhibit A, excluding the following test groups
4GMXTO6.0187 and 4GMXAO06.0189.

The Power Programmer III is designed to reprogram the FLASH memory chip located in the
vehicle‘s ECU module to enhance the vehicle‘s overall performance. The Power
Programmer IIl may include either a 160 or 180 degree thermostat, aspart of the kit.

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 II! will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.                                                      4

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Power Programmer I!I, 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 Programmer III 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.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions test data generated on a 2003 Chevrolet
Corvette ZO6 certified to the Low—Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standards. Emission levels
of the modified vehicle, with a 160 degree thermostat, met the applicable emission standards
over the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental Federal Test
Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycles. Results are in grams per mile with deterioration factors
added to CVS—75 FTP results:

Corvette                       CVS—75                              USO6
                  NMOG CO          NOx     HCHO             NMHC+NOx   CO
Standards         0.075 34        0.2       0.015           0.14       8.0
Device            0.070 1.6       0.05     0.001            0.12       1.5

This Executive Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I!) test conducted on the
same test vehicles. Test data showed that the Power Programmer III when installed on the
vehicles did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform their OBD 11 monitoring.

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.

respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.
