    AEM Cold Air System will not adversely affect the exhaust emissions of the vehicles for which
    the exemption is requested.

    This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the AEM Cold Air
    System not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of the vehicle
    manufacturer

    Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the AEM Cold Air System, as exempt
    by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicles‘ pollution control
    system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

    prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

    This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation of the AEM Cold Air
    System. ARB reserves the right to conduct emission tests in the future which will adequately
    measure emissions from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate that the AEM Cold
    Air System adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as those conditions
    which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure), this
    Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are validated.
