the Air Resources Board.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6/SC03), and an examination of the On—Board
Diagnostic It (OBD 11) system. A 2004 Pontiac GTO with a 5.7 liter engine
(4GMXVO5.7083, ULEV, PC) was used for the evaluation of the Turbocharger Kit.
Results from emissions testing conducted at University of California Riverside are
shown below (in grams per mile with deterioration factors applied):

                         CVS—75                            USO6/SCO3
                  NMOG CO     NOx        HCHO           NMHC+NOx     CO
Standards 50k     0.100 3.4   0.14       0.015          0.14/0.20    8.0/2.7

certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Turbocharger Kit
does not affect OBD II system operation.
