Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Transmission Upgrade
Kits, manufactured and marketed by Pacific Performance Engineering, 303 North
Placentia Avenue, Fullerton, California 92831, 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 the following
General Motors C/K vehicles with a 6.6L diesel engine:

Stage 6 P/Ns         Stage 5 P/INs        Staged4 PINs          Application

                     128035400            128034400             2001 to 2005

The Transmission Upgrade Kits include the following main components: Torque
converter, valve body, converter flow valve, and upgraded clutch plates. Installation
consists of the removal and replacement of the transmission‘s stock parts and replaced
with the new upgraded parts. There are no changes to any of the stock shift points. No
changes are made to any component of the stock engine, including engine calibration.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the
Transmission Upgrade Kits will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Transmission Upgrade Kits,
as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Transmission Upgrade Kits using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Transmission Upgrade Kits 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 is granted based on an engineering evaluation and information
supplied by Pacific Performance Engineering on the Transmission Upgrade Kits.
Supplied information indicated that this is only a transmission rebuild kit designed to be
more robust than stock. No effect on emissions is expected since the shift points are
not modified.

The Air Resources Board reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order
and the exemption provided herein to assure that the exempted add—on or modified part
continues to meet the standards and procedures of Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE
TRANSMISSION UPGRADE KITS.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.
The order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the
order, in which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest
the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of
receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this    é— Z      day of December 2016.
