                                        State of California

                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—161—101

                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     of the California Vehicle Code

                                            Gale Banks Engineering
                             Six—Gun and EconoMind Diesel Tuners

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 Six—Gun and EconoMind
Diesel Tuners, manufactured and marketed by Gale Banks Engineering, 546 Duggan
Avenue, Azusa, California 91702, 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 the following vehicle applications with the
Cummins diesel engine:

Part #s      Application                j                                       Device
63826         2007 to 2012 6.7L Dodge Trucks*                                   Six—Gun
63841         2007   to   2012   6.7L       Dodge Trucks*                       EconoMind
63780         2007   to   2012   6.7L       Class A Motorhome*                  EconoMind
63750         2003   to   2007   5.9L       Class A Motorhome w/ Allison 2000   EconoMind
63770         2003   to   2007   5.9L       Class A Motorhome w/ Allison 3000   EconoMind


* Excluding those originally equipped with a Selective Catalytic Reduction — Urea
(SCR—U) as part of the emissions control system.

The Six—Gun and EconoMind Diesel Tuners are add—on control modules installed in series
with the vehicle‘s stock electronic control module. The Six—Gun and EconoMind Diesel
Tuners come with a six position rotary switch or electronic user interface installed near the
driver to allow selection of performance options. Data files cannot be modified by the end
user on any of the tuners.

This Executive Order is valid provided that theinstallation instructions for the Six—Gun
and EconoMind Diesel Tuners will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of Gale Banks Engineering.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Six—Gun and EconoMind
Diesel Tuners, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
Order.


                                             g.


Marketing of the Six—Gun and EconoMind Diesel Tuners using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Six—Gun and EconoMind
Diesel Tuners for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order is granted based on prior submitted emissions test data generated
in support of Executive Orders D—161—87 and D—161—95 on a 2008 model year Dodge
Ram 2500 and 2006 Dodge Ram 3500. Test results showed that comparable emission
levels, with the programmers at highest horsepower setting, were within the 10 percent
limit of baseline during the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure, and steady—state test cycles. Examination of the OBD II system
showed that the programmer did not affect OBD II system operation. The emissions
impact for the newly—included vehicles should be similar to those vehicles covered under
existing E.Os.

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 SIX—GUN AND
ECONOMIND DIESEL TUNERS.

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      13       day of February 2015.
