                                                   —3—


 This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Git, Stinger,
 StingerPlus 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 Procedure. 1999:—Dodge Ram 2500 was used as the test vehicle.

 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 particulates as specified in the
 "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts".

 This Executive Order is also based on an On Board Diagnostic l1 (OBD II) 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 I! 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 GIT, STINGER, STINGERPLUS
 AND POWERPACK KITS.

 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.

 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 determination is made after the hearing that grounds for
 revocation exist.
