                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—126—40

                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the California Vehicle Code

                                  General Motors LLC
                    Performance Air Intake Kit, Part Number 84016022

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of
the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Performance Air Intake Kit,
manufactured and marketed by General Motors LLC, 3300 General Motors Road, Milford,
Michigan 48380, 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 2014 to 2016 model year 5.3L General Motors pickups and SUVs.

The Performance Air Intake Kit, Part No. 84016022, is designed to replace the stock air
filter box and intake tubing with a new closed element air filter box designed with a
conical air filter and a clear top cover. The new air intake tube is designed to connect the
new air box to the throttle body. Stock mass air flow sensor is installed in the new air
intake tube. A new PCV line is included using stock connectors. No other changes are
required for proper installation. Installation of the Air Intake System requires the
removal of the stock air filter housing. If the stock air filter housing contains the
vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions control decal, a replacement decal must be placed
in a similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Performance
Air Intake Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of
General Motors LLC.

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

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 is granted based on submitted emissions test data generated on one
test vehicle modified with the Performance Air Intake Kit. Test results showed that
emission levels, with the Performance Air Intake Kit installed, met the applicable emission
standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test
cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycle. Examination
of the OBD II system showed that the Performance Air Intake Kit did not affect OBD II
system operation. Results from emissions testing conducted at the General Motor Proving
 Ground located in Milford, Michigan, are shown below, in grams per mile, with deterioration
factors (df) applied to Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure modified test results.

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
PERFORMANCE AIR INTAKE KIT.

Marketing of the Performance Air Intake Kit using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the Performance Air Intake Kit 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.

This Executive Ordér shall not apply to any Performance Air Intake Kit advertised, offered
for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to
an ultimate purchaser.

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    2 ?        day of February 2016.
