This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for this device

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as exempted by the
Air Resources Board, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of this device for an application other than those listed in this
Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
