The Flashpaq and Cortex Tuners are hand held programmers designed to reprogram the
FLASH memory chip located in the vehicle‘s ECU module. The stages of enhancement are:
transmission only, 87 octane, towing, and performance. The tuners are designed to
download OEM calibration updates, non emission related upgrades, and patches or fixes in
the firmware. Emission—related data files cannot be modified by the end user.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Flashpaq and
Cortex Tuners will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.


Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Flashpaq and Cortex Tuners, 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 Flashpac and Cortex Tuners 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 Flashpaq and Cortex Tuners using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Flashpaq and Cortex Tuners 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
Flashpaq and Cortex Tuners may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emissions and OBD II             .
test data that was generated in support of Executive Order D—330—10. The test vehicles —
were a 2007 model year 4.6L Ford Mustang, certified to the Low Emission Vehicle I!
Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards, with a measured 20
horsepower gain, a 2007 model year 5.4L Ford Shelby GT 500 Mustang, certified to
LEV 11 LEV emission standards, with a measured 55 horsepower gain, and a 2007 model
year 5.7L Chrysler 300, certified to LEV II ULEV emission standards, with a measured 20
horsepower gain.

For General Motors vehicles, Superchips submitted emissions test data generated on
two test vehicles modified with the performance tune. Test results showed that emission
levels, with the performance tune installed, met the applicable emission standards when
tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and/or the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO68) test cycle. Examination of the
OBD II system showed that the programmer did not affect OBD II system operation.
Results from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and Development
Services, Inc., located in Ontario, California and Quantum Technologies, located in Lake
Forest, California, are shown below (in grams per mile with deterioration factors applied).
