Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and                       —

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of
the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Git, Stinger, Stinger—Plus and
PowerPack kits, manufactured and marketed by Gale Banks Engineering, 546 Duggan
Avenue, Azusa, California 91702 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of
Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for applicable 1999 through 2003 model—year Ford trucks
equipped with the 7.3L turbo—diesel engine, as listed in Exhibit A.

The Git—Kit includes the following main components: Tailpipe, muffler, Ottomind Power
Module, and a zener diode that is used with the MAP sensor.

The Stinger includes the following main components: A K&N style air filter in the stock air
filter housing, factory turbine outlet pipe is replaced with a 3.5" or 4" diameter turbine outlet
pipe manufactured out of 17 gage stainless steel, a wastegate actuator, tailpipe, muffler,
Ottomind Power Module, and a zener diode that is used with the MAP sensor.

The Stinger—Plus includes the following main components: A K&N style air filter in the stock
air filter housing, factory turbine outlet pipe is replaced with a 3.5" or 4" diameter turbine
outlet pipe manufactured out of 17 gage stainless steel, a wastegate actuator, a 1.0 A/R
turbine housing, tailpipe, muffler, Ottomind Power Module, and a zener diode that is used
with the MAP sensor.

The PowerPack includes the following main components: A K&N style air filter in the stock air
filter housing, replacement intercooler, replacement intake plumbing, factory turbine outlet
pipe is replaced with a 3.5" or 4" diameter turbine outlet pipe manufactured out of 17 gage
stainless steel, a wastegate actuator, a 1.0 A/R turbine housing, tailpipe, muffler, Ottomind
Power Module, and a zener diode that is used with the MAP sensor.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Gale Banks Engineering‘s Git, Stinger, Stinger—
Plus and PowerPack Kits advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor
vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.


                                                2.


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 specifications
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Git, Sti’nger, 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 thoseé 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     116    7.4        0.150              9.0%
PowerPack          0.43     1.5    7.A        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 I! (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 11 monitoring.
