                                   State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—260—18

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                                      Hypertech, Inc.
 Max Energy, Max Energy 2.0, Max Energy ECON, Tow Master / Tow Master Plus, Tow
                              Master Junior, and HyperPAC


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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Max Energy,
Max Energy 2.0, Max Energy ECON, Tow Master / Tow Master Plus, Tow Master Junior,
and HyperPAC, manufactured and marketed by Hypertech, Inc., 3215 Appling Road
Bartlett, Tennessee 38133—3999, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 2007 to 2010 model year General
Motors vehicles with a 6.6L diesel engine.

The Max Energy (P/N 32501), Max Energy 2.0 (P/N 2100), Max Energy ECON
(P/N 33501), Tow Master / Tow Master Plus (P/N 87100), Tow Master Junior
(P/N 34501), and HyperPAC (P/N 83014) are devices designed to reprogram the engine
and/or transmission control module to modify the operating parameters. The Max
Energy and Max Energy ECON are handheld programmers. The Tow Master series and
HyperPAC are the same as the hand held programmers, with the addition of a dash
mount display for engine operating parameters. Downloaded calibration is active with or
without the dash mount display. The Tow Master series and HyperPAC use the OBD II
port to obtain engine operating parameters for display. The Tow Master series and
HyperPAC display feature may be unplugged from the OBD II port during the
Smog Check Inspection program in California to allow communication of all
required emission related messages between the vehicle‘s OBD II system and the
scan tool.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Max
Energy, Max Energy 2.0, Max Energy ECON, Tow Master / Tow Master Plus, Tow
Master Junior, and HyperPAC will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of Hypertech, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Max Energy,
Max Energy 2.0, Max Energy ECON, Tow Master / Tow Master Plus, Tow Master Junior,
and HyperPAC, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
Order.


                                               13.


Marketing of the Max Energy, Max Energy 2.0, Max Energy ECON, Tow Master / Tow Master
Plus, Tow Master Junior, and HyperPAC using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Max Energy, Max Energy 2.0, Max Energy ECON, Tow
Master / Tow Master Plus, Tow Master Junior, and HyperPAC for an application other than
those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from
the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emissions and OBD II test data
that was generated in support of Executive Order D—260—17 on a 2008 model year 6.6L
General Motors truck (test group 8GMXHO6.6590).

Installation of the Max Energy, Max Energy 2.0, Max Energy ECON, Tow Master / Tow Master
Plus, Tow Master Junior, and HyperPAC shall not block or prohibit the communication of all
required emission related messages from the vehicle‘s OBD II system to a scan tool used for
the Smog Check Inspection program in California.

The Air Resources Board 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.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE MAX ENERGY,
MAX ENERGY 2.0, MAX ENERGY ECON, TOW MASTER / TOW MASTER PLUS,
TOW MASTER JUNIOR, AND HYPERPAC.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.
The order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the
order, in which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest
the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of
receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   _2 Jiday of May 2015.
