                                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—14
                              Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                           of the Vehicle Code

                                         DINAN ENGINEERING
                                       High Flow Air Intake System

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

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 High Flow Air Intake System,
manufactured and marketed by Dinan Engineering, Inc., 150 S. Whisman, 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 those
applicable 1992 to 2000 BMW vehicles listed in Exhibit A.

The High Flow Cold Air Intake System includes the following main components: K&N cone shaped
open element filter, 3.5" tubing, and mounting hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the High Flow Air Intake
System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Dinan Engineering, Inc. High Flow Air Intake System
advertised, offered for sale, or sold with or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the High Flow Air Intake System, 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 High Flow Air Intake System using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the High Flow Air Intake System for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the High Flow Air
Intake System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation which determined that the High
Flow Air Intake System will have no adverse impact on evaporative or tailpipe emissions if tested in
accordance with the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Furthermore, Dinan Engineering,
 nc. demonstrated, using a 1999 BMW 740i, that the High Flow Air Intake System did not affect the
ability of the vehicle‘s OBD II system to monitor various emission related functions. However, the
ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the High Flow Air Intake System may
adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters

DINAN ENGINEERING                                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—14
High Flow Air Intake System                          .             (Page 2 of 2)

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 High Flow Air
Intake System adversely affect 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
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 High Flow Cold Air Intake
System will affect the durability of the emission control system, Dinan Engineering, 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.


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 after hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executive Order D—176—11, dated June 1997, is superseded and of no further force and effect.

Executed at El Monte, California, this 29 *    day of December 1999.

                                    R. B. Summerfield, Chief
