TUBULAR EXHAUST MANIFOLD SYSTEM                                 (Page 2 of 2)


The test data show that the exhaust headers did not adversely affect the exhaust emissions of the 1997
model—year Ford truck. The same emissions impact is expected when the exhaust headers are
installed on the vehicles for which the exemption is requested.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the 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 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 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 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 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 ANTI—
POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF HEDMAN HEDDERS®‘ TUBULAR
EXHAUST MANIFOLD SYSTEM.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation ofthis 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.
