                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                       of the Vehicle Code

                        SUPER COMPETITION EXHAUST HEADERS


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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Super Competition Header
System manufactured out of 0.060 inch wall thickness (16 gauge) steel tubing by Hooker
Industries, Inc. of 1024 West Brooks Street, Ontario, California 91762, has been found not to
reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution control devices and, therefore, is
exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code for those vehicle
applications as listed in the Exhibit, which is attached hereto and incorporated herein, excluding
those vehicles certified with the close—coupled catalyst system.

This exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data from an independent laboratory
and testing performed at the Air Resources Board‘s test laboratory which showed the Super
Competition Header System did not adversely affect exhaust emissions on the vehicle tested.
The test results are shown below.
