Marcos, California 92069 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of required

advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

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 device, as exempted by the
Air Resources Board (ARB), that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.
