The Banks Ram—Air Intake includes the following main components: reusable air filter, super
scoop (optional), new air filter enclosure (air filter box on fuel injected vehicles or a modified
air cleanerlid on carbureted or TBI vehicles), intake system tubing, and assorted brackets
and hardware. Installation of the Air Intake System requires the removal of the stock
air filter housing and all intake air tubing. If the stock air filter housing contains the
vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions control decal, a replacement decal must be placed in a
similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided the installation instructions for the Ram—Air Intake 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 Ram—Air Intake, 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 Ram—Air Intake using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Ram—Air Intake for an application other than those listed
in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board.

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

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Ram—Air Intake may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
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 Emission
Vehicle I Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV I ULEV) emission standards and a 2007 model
year 5.4L Ford F—150 and 5.3L Chevrolet Tahoe, both certified to the Low Emission
Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) and all modified with the Ram—Air
Intake.

The Air Resources Board 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

which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the
