manufactured out of 17 gage stainless steel, a new muffler and 3.5" modified tailpipe, the ECM is modified with an engine

marketing of the Stinger Engine Package for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board. Exemption of the Stinger Engine Package shall
not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation on the impact of the Banks Stinger Engine Package on
exhaust emissions, as well as an examination of the On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system of the vehicle in the modified
configuration.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order and the exemption
