Downloader, manufactured and marketed by Bully Dog Technologies, 2854 West 2200
South, Aberdeen, Idaho 83210, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the

emission related upgrades, and patches or fixes in the firmware. Triple Dog Gas
Downloader data files cannot be modified by the end user.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Triple Dog
Gas Downloader 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 Triple Dog Gas Downloader,
as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle's pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Triple Dog Gas Downloader advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the Triple Dog Gas Downloader using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Triple Dog Gas Downloader for an
application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.


This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Triple
Dog Gas Downloader may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on
three test vehicles modified with the Premium tune. Test results showed that emission
levels, with the Triple Dog Gas Downloader's Premium program installed, met the
applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP US06)
test cycle. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Triple Dog Gas Downloader
did not affect OBD II system operation. Results from emissions testing conducted at
Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc., located in Ontario, California, are
shown below (in grams per mile with deterioration factors applied).
