    IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Purifilter Plus device,
    manufactured by Engine Control Systems Ltd. of 83 Commerce Valley Drive East,
    Thornhill, Ontario, Canada L3T 7T3, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of

    on-road heavy-duty vehicles equipped with 1988 through 2006 model-year 4-stroke

    under this Executive Order are identified in Attachment A.

    This Executive Order is based on engineering evaluation and previous emission test
    data. The Purifilter Plus device is not expected to have any adverse impact on engine
    emissions when used on any of the engines listed above.

    This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Purifilter Plus
    device do not recommend tuning the engines to specifications different from those of
    the engine manufacturer.

    Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Purifilter Plus device, as
    exempted by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
