— 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 PowerPack and TorqueTube
 Exhaust Systems, manufactured and marketed by Gale Banks Engineering, 546 Duggan

 close coupled catalyst.

 TorqueTube systems consist of the following components: A pair of 16 gage, stainless steel,
 long tube style headers with a connecting Y pipe and EGR adapter tube.

 PowerPack systems consist of the following components: A pair of 16 gage, stainless steel,
 long tube style headers with a connecting Y pipe; EGR adapter tube; replacement air filter and

                                                 2


This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
PowerPack and TorqueTube Exhaust Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emission test data, for Gale
Banks Engineering (D—161—65), on a 1999 Ford F—150 truck equipped with a 5.4L engine and
certified to the Low Emission Vehicle | Low Emission Vehicle emission standards, using
PowerPack Exhaust System, part no. 48723:

                   NMOG CO         NOX      HCHO
Standards          0.195 5.0       0.6     0.022
device w/ dfs      0.108 1.7       0.1     0.002

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the PowerPack System installed on the
vehicle met the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards during a Cold Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on an On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II)
test conducted on the same test vehicle. Test data showed that the PowerPack System when
installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II 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.
