Vitalen Auto Performance (DBA Pedal Commander) has announced it has received official notice that a California Air Resources Board (CARB) Executive Order (EO) D-840-1 and D-840-3 was issued on September 6, for Pedal Commander’s ’11+ Ford Gas and Ford Diesel Throttle Response Systems. The EO D-840-1 and D-840-3 affirms that it 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. The CARB EO is recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and is accepted in all 50 states, meaning the Pedal Commander can be legally purchased and installed in every state, including California. Larry Sartore, of Vitalen Auto Performance, was the driving force behind obtaining the CARB EO. It is illegal to sell aftermarket parts without a CARB EO in California and many other states if the part affects emissions or the emissions-control system.
