Londonderry, New Hampshire 03053, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of
the applicable engine emission control system, and therefore, the Phantom Switch

Switch Diesel Particulate Filter may have on engine emissions.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Phantom

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Phantom Switch Diesel
Particulate Filter, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the engine‘s pollution control system, shall invalidate this Executive

that shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this
Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
