The Co—Pilot is an add—on controller designed to control the torque converter clutch lock
up and shifting firmness of the transmission. No changes are made to the vehicle‘s
stock fuel calibration or any emission related components. The Co—Pilot is not a
programmer but a separate hardwired controller that monitors various engine operating
parameters to modify transmission shifting. The On Board Diagnostic (OBD) port is not
utilized for this installation.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the ATS
Co—Pilot will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of
ATS Diesel.


Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the ATS Co—Pilot, 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 exemption is issued based on an engineering evaluation, OBD II testing, and
information supplied by ATS Diesel. OBD II testing was conducted on a 2011 model year
Dodge Ram 3500 and a Chevrolet C2500 with the Co—Pilot set at worst case setting.
Examination of the OBD II system, showed no effect on the vehicles‘ OBD II system
operation. The same OBD II test results would be expected with the Co—Pilot installed on
the other requested vehicles.

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 ATS CO—PILOT.

Marketing of the ATS Co—Pilot using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the ATS Co—Pilot for an application other than those listed
in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board.

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 ,.27)’&/’     day of March 2015.
