IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Max Energy Sport and Max
Energy 2.0 Power Programmers, manufactured and marketed by Hypertech, Inc., 3215
Appling Road, Bartlett, Tennessee 38133—3999, has been found not to reduce the

from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the following vehicles listed in
Exhibit A.

The Max Energy Sport and Max Energy 2.0 Power Programmers are a hand held
programmer designed to reprogram the engine and/or transmission control module to
modify the operating parameters. Emission—related data files cannot be modified by the end

This Executive Orderis valid provided that the installation instructions for the Max Energy

specifications different from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Max Energy Sport and Max
Energy 2.0 Power Programmers, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely
affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this
Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Max Energy Sport and Max Energy 2.0
Power Programmers advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor
vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the Max Energy Sport and Max Energy 2.0 Power Programmers using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Max
Energy Sport and Max Energy 2.0 Power Programmers 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 does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Max
Energy Sport and Max Energy 2.0 Power Programmers may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


This Executive Order is granted based on Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure
test, Supplemental Federal Test Procedure USO6 test, and OBD II system test
conducted with the Hypertech programmers set at the highest horsepower gain
(Executive Order D—260—14).

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
SPORT AND MAX ENERGY 2.0 POWER PROGRAMMERS.

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 advertisingor other oral or written
communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.

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
