                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—161—105

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                       TorqueTube and Revolver Exhaust Manifolds

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 TorqueTube and Revolver
Exhaust Manifolds, 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.

The TorqueTube and Revolver Exhaust Manifolds are shorty style headers, manufactured
out of 16 gauge stainless steel tubing. For all applications, excluding motorhomes, the
oxygen sensor is retained in the stock location and at a collector. Motorhome applications
may include a connecting Y—pipe that is also manufactured out of 16 gauge stainless steel
tubing. The oxygen sensor is in the connecting Y—pipe at a collector, similar to stock. The
Revolver is part number 51326 only.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the TorqueTube
and Revolver Exhaust Manifolds 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 TorqueTube and Revolver
Exhaust Manifolds, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.




           GALE BANKS ENGINEERING — EXHAUST MANIFOLDS — D—161—105


Marketing of the TorqueTube and Revolver Exhaust Manifolds using any identification
other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the TorqueTube and
Revolver Exhaust Manifolds 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 data submitted in support of Executive
Orders D—161—80, D—161—81, and D—161—99. The increase in vehicle coverage does not
present changes that would cause an adverse effect on emissions or impair proper
function of the OBD II system. The emissions impact for the newly—included vehicles
should be similar to those vehicles covered under the existing Executive Orders.

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 TORQUETUBE
AND REVOLVER EXHAUST MANIFOLDS.

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, Ca[ifornia} this    2 ’é 74 day of January 2017.
