Supercharger Systems                                          (Page 2 of 3)


Stage 3 Kit: Same components and modifications as the Stage 1 Kit with the inclusion of a
new increased diameter throttle body.

Stage 4 Kit: Same components and modifications as the Stage 1 Kit with the inclusion of a
new increased diameter throttle body, new air flow meter, and a new intake manifold
{applicable to vehicles equipped with an on—board—diagnostic II (OBD II) system).

Intercooled Supercharger Kit: Same components and modifications as the Stage 1 Kit with
the inclusion of a new increased diameter throttle body, new air flow meter, new intake
manifold (applicable to vehicles equipped with an OBD II system), new high pressure fuel
regulator, and an intercooler. The supercharger uses a 3.03" diameter pulley and a 5.5"
diameter crankshaft pulley with a max. boost pressure of 10 psi.

Dinan recommends use of high octane fuel with the Supercharger Systems.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Supercharger
Systems will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Dinan Engineering, Inc. Supercharger Systems
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 Supercharger Systems, 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 Supercharger Systems using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Supercharger Systems 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
Supercharger Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on the following submitted emissions test data on a
1998 BMW M—Roadster certified to a transitional low—emission vehicle standard. The vehicle
in the modified configuration, with the Intercooled Supercharged Kit installed, met the
applicable emission standards. Testing consisted of one Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedures in the modified configuration. The following test results are in grams per mile
with deterioration factors applied:                         —

Supercharger Systems                                           (Page 3 of 3)


This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1I) testing conducted on
the same vehicle. Test data showed that the Supercharger System 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 Supercharger
Systems may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles 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 Systems 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 Supercharger Systems 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.

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 SYSTEMS.

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.
