IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the StingerPlus, manufactured and marketed by Gale Banks

Code for 1994—97 and 1999 model—year Ford trucks equipped with the 7.3 liter turbo diesel engine, excluding any vehicle
certified to a low emission vehicle (LEV) emission standard.

Order: XNVXHO7.3ANF.

The StingerPlus includes the following main components for the 1994—97 model—year applications: The 1.15 A/R stock
turbine housing is replaced with a 1.0 A/R turbine housing, the air filter element is replaced with a K&N style air filter

nmanufactured out of 17 gage stainless steel, stock tailpipe is replaced with a modified tailpipe, and the ECM is modified
with an engine calibration module.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Banks StingerPlus advertised, offered for sale, or sold with or installed on, a _
motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

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

StingerPlus 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 StingerPlus 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 StingerPlus may have on any warranty
either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation and on prior submitted emissions test data on the
 mpact of the Banks StingerPlus on exhaust emissions, as well as an examination of the On Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1I)
system of the vehicle in the modified configuration.
