control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

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

modified configurations using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP),

durability of vehicle emission control systems is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—
on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.
