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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Supercharger System,
manufactured by the Toyota Racing Development, 1382 Valencia Avenue, Tustin, California
92780 and marketed by General Motors Service Parts Operations has been found not to
reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is
exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the 2003 and 2004
model—year Pontiac Vibe equipped with a 1.8L engine.

The Supercharger System for the 1.8L engine includes the following main components: Eaton
supercharger with integrated intake manifold and an extra injector, 160 degree thermostat to
replace the 180 degree original thermostat, a supercharger ECU, and all the necessary hardware
needed for installation. The stock air filter housing is retained, and all emission related
components including the throttle—body are transferred to the new intake manifold. A new airinlet
tube assehmbly is provided to connect the air filter housing to the throttle—body. No changes are
made to the stock ignition system. Boost is limited to 7.5 psi. by the 2.4" diameter supercharger
pulley.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Supercharger
System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by
the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Supercharger System, 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 Executive Order shall not apply to any Supercharger System advertised, offered for sale,
sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate
purchaser.

Marketing of the Supercharger System using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Supercharger System for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board. Exemption of the Supercharger System shall not be construed as exemption
to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.


  This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Supercharger
  System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

  This Executive Order is granted based on previous emissions testing (Executive Order
  D—425—13) which showed that emission levels of the 2003 1.8L Matrix with the Supercharger
  System installed, met the applicable emission standards. Results are in grams per mile with
  deterioration factors added to the CVS—75 test results.

_ This Executive Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD !I) test conducted on
  the same test vehicle. Test data showed that the Supercharger System when installed on the
 vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD I! monitoring. Same impact on
 emissions and OBD II system is expected on the affected vehicles.

 The ARB reserves the right in thefuture 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.
