                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—171—10

                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                        of the Vehicle Code

                                  Advanced Turbo Systems, Inc.
                                        Torque Pro 2000


 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—02—003;

_IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Torque Pro 2000,
 manufactured and marketed by Advanced Turbo Systems, Inc., 5919 South 300 West, Sait
 Lake City, Utah 84107 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
 vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the following turbo diesel vehicle applications:

   1994 through 2002 model—year Ford Pickups with 7.3L Navistar engine.
   1989 through 1998 model—year Dodge Pickups with 5.9L Cummins engine.
   1993 through 2002 model—year GM Pickups with either a 6.5 or 6.6L engine.

 The Torque Pro 2000 includes a Pro2000 regulator, intake air ducting, a manifold pressure
 switch, and other hardware for proper installation. Propane is delivered to the engine through
 a 3/16 orifice in the intake air tubing prior to the turbo.

 This Executive Order shall not apply to any Advanced Turbo Systems, Inc. ‘s Torque Pro 2000
 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 is valid provided that the instailation instructions for the Torque Pro 2000
 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 Torque Pro 2000, 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 Torque Pro 2000 using any identification other than that shown in this
  Executive Order or marketing of the Torque Pro 2000 for an application other than those listed
— in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
 Resources Board. Exemption of the Torque Pro 2000 shall not be construed as exemption to
 sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.


                                                 2.


 This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Torque
 Pro 2000 may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

 This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that
 the Torque Pro 2000 did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during a comparative Cold
 Start 505 Federal Test Procedures. A 2001 Ford F—350 with a 7.3L diesel engine, certified to
 the low emission vehicle (LEV) emission standards, was used as the test vehicle. Results
 showing baseline and modified emission levels are listed below.

                    HC       CO     NOx        PM                Opacity
 Baseline           0.53     1.3    6§.4      0.252              11.2%
 Device             0.40     12      6.6      0.143              7.2%

Difference          —0143   01      0.2       —0.109
 Test results showed that the Torque Pro 2000 did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the
 baseline emissions by more than the allowed limits of 10 percent or 0.1 grams per mile on
 hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx), 15 percent or 1.0 grams per mile on carbon
 monoxide (CO), and 15 percent or 0.03 grams per mile on particulate matter (PM) as specified
 in the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts." Opacity test results
 generated using the highest reading on the Smoke Opacity Test were below the 40 percent
 standard.

 This Executive Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) testing conducted
 on the same vehicle. Test data showed that the Torque Pro 2000 when installed on the
 vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

_ The ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Torque Pro 2000 may
  adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
  parameters of the Cold Start 505 Federal Test Procedure. Accordingly, the ARB reserves the
  right to conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as such tests are developed, that will
  more adequately measure emissions from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate
  that the Torque Pro 2000 adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as
  those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold Start 505 Federal Test
  Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results
  are validated. Further, if such test results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason to
  suspect that the Torque Pro 2000 will affect the durability of the emission control system,

                                            —3.


Advanced Turbo Systems, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the
durability of the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on
or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB 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
RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF ADVANCED TURBO
SYSTEMS, INC. °S TORQUE PRO 2000.

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.

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

Executed at El Monte, California, this    8"7’ day of August, 2002.
