                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—167—15
                            Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                         of the Vehicle Code

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the Health and
Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Chikara exhaust headers,
manufactured by Hedman Hedders of 9599 Jefferson Boulevard, Culver City, California 90232,
have been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system,
and therefore, the Chikara exhaust headers are exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code for installation on the following Honda Motor Co., Ltd. (Honda) vehicles:




         37090            1994—97             Honda Accord             2.2 liter
         37096*

         38010            1994—97             Honda Accord**           2.2 liter
         38016*

         * Headers coated with metallic thermal coating
         ** Accord equipped with a warm—up three way catalytic converter and a three way
            catalytic converter

         The above vehicle application includes those Accords that have been certified to
         meet the transitional low—emission vehicle (TLEV) emission standards (0.125
         grams per mile non—methane organic gas standard at 50,000 miles). This
         exemption does not include any vehicles that have been certified to meet emission
         standards more stringent than the TLEV standards.




                                                                                   R~nw_wllz222       azeezlllle.   R   ____


HEDMAN HEDDERS                                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—167—15
CHIKARA EXHAUST HEADERS                                         (Page 2 of 3)


This exemption is based on an emission test conducted by Hedman Hedders on a 1996 model—year
2.2 liter Honda Accord. Hedman Hedders submitted the following Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure emission results:

                                          NMOG          CO       NOx         HCHO
                                                        (grams per mile)

             With Headers                 0.072         0.720      0.128     0.001
             DF—Applied                   0.082         0.813      0.143     0.001
             50,000—Mile Standard         0.125         3.4       0.4        0.015



The test data show that the Chikara exhaust headers did not adversely affect the exhaust emissions
of the 1996 model—year Honda Accord. The same emissions impact is expected when the Chikara
exhaust headers are installed on various model—year Accords for which the exemption is requested.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Chikara exhaust headers
not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of the vehicle
manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Chikara exhaust headers, as exempt by
the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicles‘ pollution control system, shall
invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Chikara exhaust headers using identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB. Exemption of the Chikara exhaust
headers shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of
the exhaust headers as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Chikara exhaust
headers may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board," may be made with respect
to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR
RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTT—
POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF HEDMAN HEDDERS®
CHIKARA EXHAUST HEADERS.

Violation of any of the above conditions shail be grounds for revocation of this Executive Order.
The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the
Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive Order may request in writing a
hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten
within ten days of receipt of the request, and the Executive Order may not be revoked until a
determination after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
