                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516
of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Evolution, manufactured
and marketed by Edge Products, 1080 South Depot Drive, Ogden, Utah 94404, has
been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control
systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for 1996 to 2009 model year General Motors V8 trucks.

The Evolution is a hand held programmer designed to reprogram the FLASH memory
chip located in the vehicle‘s ECU module. The Evolution has four main stages of
enhancement: transmission only, economy, towing, and Extreme. The Evolution is
designed to download OEM calibration updates, non emission related upgrades, and
patches or fixes in the firmware. Evolution data files cannot be modified by the end user.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Evolution
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 Evolution, 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 Evolution 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 Evolution using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of the Evolution 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
Evolution 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 a
2008 model year 5.3L General Motors Yukon, certified to the Low Emission
Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards and modified
with the Evolution Extreme tune. Test results showed that emission levels, with the


Evolution‘s Extreme 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 USO6) test cycle. Examination of the OBD
II system showed the Evolution 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).
