This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data on a 1994 5.7L
Chevrolet Suburban equipped with the Smart Cam Lifters.

Baseline            0.50    4.6     0.6

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Smart Cam Lifters installed on the
vehicle did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the baseline emissions by more than
the allowed limits of 10 percent or 0.1 grams per mile on hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of
nitrogen (NOx), and 15 percent or 1.0 grams per mile carbon monoxide (CO) as specified
in the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts".

or modified part continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California
Code of Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.

respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.
