                                                 27—


This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Git, Stinger,
Stinger—Plus and PowerPack Kits will not recommend tuning the vehicle to spemÔ¨Ācatlons
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or, operating conditions of the Git, Stinger, Stinger—Plus and
PowerPack Kits, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Git, Stinger, Stinger—Plus and PowerPack Kits using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Git, Stinger, Stinger—Plus and
PowerPack Kits 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
Git, Stinger, Stinger—Plus and PowerPack Kits 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 Git,
Stinger, Stinger—Plus and PowerPack Kits may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions test data which showed that the worst
case kit, PowerPack, did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during comparative Cold Start
505 Federal Test Procedures. Results of the modified test and the baseline emission levels
are listed below. A 2000 Ford F—350 with a 7.3L diesel engine, and certified to the low
emission vehicle (LEV) emission standards was used as the test vehicle.

                   HC       CO     NOx        PM                Opacity
Stock             0.57      1.6     7.4       0.150             9.0%
PowerPack         0.43      1.5    7.4        0.115             16.9%

Difference        —0.14    —0.1    0.0       —0.035

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions during comparative Cold Start 505 Federal Test
Procedure with the PowerPack installed on the vehicle did not cause exhaust emissions to
exceed the baseline emissions by more than the allowed limits of 10 percent or 0.1 grams per
mile on hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx), 15 percent or 1.0 grams per mile
carbon monoxide (CO), and 15 percent or 0.03 grams per mile on PM as specified in the
"Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts." Opacity test results which were
generated using the highest reading on the Smoke Opacity Test were below the 40 percent
standard.

This Executive Order is also based on the On Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) testing conducted
on the same vehicle. Test data showed that the PowerPack when installed on the vehicle did
not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD 11 monitoring.
