This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that the
Pro Flash GM Handheld Programmer, under economy and performance calibrations, did not
adversely affect tailpipe emissions. Emission levels of the modified vehicle met the applicable
emission standards. A 2003 Chevrolet Avalanche with a 5.3L engine, and certified to the Ultra
Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) emission standards was used as the test vehicle. Results are in
grams per mile with deterioration factors added to the CVS—75 test results.
