                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—17

                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                        of the Vehicle Code

                                    Dinan Engineering, Inc.
                                    High Flow Throttle Body


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: That the installation of the High Flow Throttle Body,
manufactured and marketed by Dinan Engineering, Inc., 865 Jarvis Drive, Morgan Hill,
California 95037 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 BMW vehicle applicationslisted in Exhibit A.

The Dinan High Flow Throttle Body is an OEM throttle body that has been modified to a
slightly larger diameter bore. A new throttle plate is included to match up with the new
diameter bore. Installation is in the stock location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the High Flow
Throttle Body 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. High Flow Throttle Body
advertised, offered for sale, 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 Throttle Body, 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 Throttle Body using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the High Flow Throttle Body 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 Throttle Body may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation and On Board
Diagnostic l1 (OBD II) testing conducted on a 2000 model—year BMW 540i. Test data showed
that the High Flow Throttle Body when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s _
ability to perform its OBD I! monitoring.


                                               —2.


The ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the High Flow Throttle
Body may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions
outside the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 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 fromall cycle phases. If such test
results demonstrate that the High Flow Throttle Body 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 Throttle Body 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 theright in the futureto 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
HIGH FLOW THROTTLE BODY.

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 has been made after the hearing that
grounds for revocation exist.
