PowerPack Engine Package                                (Page 2 of 2)



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

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions and opacity test data on a 1997 Dodge 3500
truck with a 5.9L diesel engine. Testing consisted of comparative Cold Start 505 Federal Test Procedures
and the snap idle opacity test. The following test results, in grams per mile, showed that the difference
between the modified and baseline emissions results were within the allowable limits as specified under
the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts:
                     HC         CO       NOX      PARTICULATES            OPACITY (Percent)
Stock                0.26       0.9      5.8       0.001                  28, 26, 30, 39
PowerPack            0.22       0.8      6.0       0.0004                 27, 27, 32, 25

This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same
1997 truck. Test data showed that the PowerPack when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s
ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.                                      ‘

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB 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 GALE BANKS ENGINEERING‘S POWERPACK ENGINE PACKAGE.

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
