This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
MAX Microtuner, part numbers 2714 and 2715 may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions test data generated on a 2005
model year Chevrolet C1500 truck equipped with a 6.0L engine and certified to the
Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) emission standards. Emission levels of the
modified vehicle, with the MAX Microtuner program adjusted to the Performance level,
met the applicable emission standards over the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (USO6) test cycles.
Results are in grams per mile with deterioration factors added to CVS—75 FTP results:

vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.
