                  Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156

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 Sections 39515 and
39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:  That the installation of PowerPack Exhaust System
and connecting pipes, manufactured by Gale Banks Engineering of 546 S. Duggan
Ave., Azusa, California 91702 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 all 1988—97
General Motors 5.0, 5.7, and 7.4 liter truck motors and 1996/97 Ford 7.5 liter
truck motor.

The PowerPack Exhaust System includes a set of exhaust headers and connecting
pipes manufactured out of 17 gage stainless steel.  The installation of the
PowerPack Exhaust System does not require any modifications to the vehicle‘s
emission control system.

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

Marketing of these headers using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the headers 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 does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use
of the headers may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF GALE BANKS ENGINEERING‘S POWERPACK EXHAUST SYSTEM.

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 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 after hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.
