This Executive Order is granted based on prior submitted emission test data generated in
support of Executive Order D—271—19, on a 2008 model year 6.2L Corvette certified to the Low
Emission Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards, modified with
the 9 psi. TS Series Supercharger Kit. Test results on the Corvette showed that emission levels,
with Kenne Bell, Inc.‘s TS Series Supercharger installed, met the applicable emission standards
when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6/SC03) test cycles. Boost pressure was measured at 9.0
psi. Examination of the OBD II system showed the TS Series Supercharger did not affect OBD
II system operation. Results from emission testing conducted at the Automotive Testing and
Development Services, Inc., of Ontario, California are listed below with deterioration factors
applied.
