                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—164—9
                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code


                           HOOKER INDUSTRIES, INC.
                     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
Exhaust 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 which showed the Hooker Competition Header System did not adversely
affect exhaust emissions on the vehicle tested. The test results are shown below.

1999 5.4L Ford F—150                                                 j

Device (g/mi) with df‘s applied                   0.118        1.6           0.2      0002

This Executive Order is also based on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing
conducted on the same test vehicle. Test data showed that the exhaust headers when
installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II
monitoring.

This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or mechanism advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.
