The Banks Ram—Air Intake includes the following main components: reusable air filter,
new air filter enclosure (air filter box on fuel injected vehicles or a modified air cleaner
lid on carbureted or TBI vehicles), intake system tubing, and assorted brackets and
hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Ram—Air
Intake will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Ram—Air Intakes advertised, offered for sale,
sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from
the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the

manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emissions and OBD II
test data that was generated in support of Executive Orders D—161—80 and D—161—81.
The test vehicles were 2006 model year 4.0L Jeep Wrangler, certified to the Low        .
