(2) The engine must have maximum engine power at or above 250 kW.
(3) The engine must be in an engine family that has a valid certificate of conformity showing that it meets emission standards for engines of that power rating under 40 CFR part 89 or 1039.
(b) The only requirements or prohibitions from this part that apply to an engine that is exempt under this section are in this section.
