                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the High—Ram, Monster Ram,
and Boost Tube Upgrade, manufactured and marketed by Gale Banks Engineering, 546

of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the following light and medium duty

The High—Ram, Monster Ram, and Boost Tube Upgrade are designed to replace the
stock air intake tubing and cast mental elbows with less restrictive tubing and new cast
metal elbows. The modified parts require no modifications for installation and bolts to
stock connecting ports without any modifications to the stock connecting ports. The
High—Ram, Monster Ram, and Boost Tube Upgrade has no mechanical or electrical
user adjustments. No changes are made to any component of the stock engine for
installation, including engine calibration.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the High—Ram,
Monster Ram, and Boost Tube Upgrade will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the High—Ram, Monster Ram, and
Boost Tube Upgrade, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.


                                              3.


Marketing of the High—Ram, Monster Ram, and Boost Tube Upgrade using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the
High—Ram, Monster Ram, and Boost Tube Upgrade 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 a prior engineering evaluation and
information supplied by Gale Banks Engineering in support of Executive Order
D—161—96. The additional part number 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 parts should be similar to those covered
under the existing 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 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 HIGH—RAM,
MONSTER RAM, AND BOOST TUBE UPGRADE.

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 10—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 10 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        6        day of January 2017.
