     Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board. "ARB)                  by Sectxoo —#
     27156 of the Vehicle Code; and

     Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and
     39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—4§—5;

     IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:  That the installation of the Thermo—Master PROM
     chips manufactured by Hypertech, Inc. have been found not to reduce the
     effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution control devices and,
     therefore, are exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
     Code for 1982—92 General Motors vehicles with 2.8 to 5.7 liter engines and
     Ford Motor Company vehicles with 5.0 engine as lxste‘ in Exhibit A, which is
     attached hereto and incorporated herein.

     Ti.lsc   Exgiugtive Orfler   is   valid pr,v;ded that     instaslizt.tt instructions for

     Changes made to the deséagn or operating conditions of the device,                  as
     exempted by the ARB, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
     pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

     Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in
     this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other
     than these listed in this Executive Order shall be prr~ibited unless prior
     aprrtval     is obtained from the Air Resources Scard.

     This Exerutive Orgder does not consticute any cpinion s to the effect thie

     This Executive Orosr is granted based or results fror emissions tests
     conducted in accordance with Coid—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
     However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of
     the Thermo—Master PROM chips may adversely affect emissions of 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 future,   as such tests are
     developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle
                  If such test results demonstrate that the Thermo—Master PROM chips

 other evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Thermo—
 Master PROM chips will affect the durability of the emfission 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.

 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.
