                                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—12
                               Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                            ofthe Vehicle Code


                                      DINAN ENGINEERING
                                  DINAN SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM


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: Thatthe installation of the Supercharger System, designed to a
maxinmum boost pressure of 6.5 psi., with a supercharger pulley diameter of 3.12" and a crankshaft
pulley diameter of 5.00", manufactured and marketed by Dinan Engineering, 150 South Whisman,
Building E, Mountain View, California 94041 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 installation on the following BMW vehicle applications:

                 Model           Model Years           Engine Size

                3281              1996 to 1999             2.8L
                 M3               1996 to 1999             3.2L
                 Z3               1996 to 1999             2.8L
                5281              1997 to 1999             2.8L
                M Roadster          1998/99                3.2L

The following 1999 model—year engine family, XBMXVO2.8LEV, certified to a LEV emission
standard is excluded.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the supercharger kit will not
recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by the vehicle
manufacturer. Dinan recommends that only 92 octane fuel be used.

The Dinan supercharger kit includes a Powerdyne supercharger, Lucas 28.8 Ib./hr. injectors which replace
the stock injectors, a new ECU calibration, automatic transmission Prom chip, K & N air filter, air flow
meter bridge circuit, and modifications to the stock PCV system using a two way valve to redirect
crankcase gases during boost conditions. The supercharger kit does not utilize an air bypass valve.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the supercharger kit, as exempt by the Air
Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall
invalidate this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Dinan Engineering supercharger kit advertised, offered for
sale, or sold with or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate
purchaser,

Marketing of the supercharger kit using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or
marketing of the supercharger kit 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 supercharger
kit shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kits as an
individual device.


Dinan Engineering                                                         Executive Order D—176—12
                                                                          (Page 2 of 2)


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

This Executive Order is granted based on the following emissions test data submitted by the kit
manufacturer:

1998 M Roadster certified to a Transitional Low Emission Vehicle (TLEV) emission standard
                     NMOG       CO       NOX      HCHO
Standards            0.125      3.4      0.4     0.015
device w/ dfs        0.113      2.0      0.2     0.003

Test results showed that the supercharger kit when installed on the vehicle did not cause tailpipe emissions
to exceed the vehicle‘s applicable emission standard during a Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
This Executive Orderis also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same test
vehicle. Test data showed that the supercharger kit when installed on the vehicle did not affect the
vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

This Executive Orderis granted based on submitted emissions test data which shows that emissions are not
affected during the Cold—Start CVS 75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the ARB finds that reasonable
grounds exist to believe that use of the Dinan Engineering supercharger kit may adversely affect emissions
of motor vehicle when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test
procedures. 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 supercharger kit adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions
(defined as those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure), this Executive Ordershall 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
supercharger kit will affect the durability of the emission control systems, Dinan Engineering 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 DINAN ENGINEERING‘S SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM.

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 ofthe 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 after hearing that grounds for re’v.(:fition exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   29’ day         arch 1999.
