                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—20
                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    Of the Vehicle Code

                                  Dinan Engineering, Inc.
                                   Performance Software


Pursuant tothe 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 instailation of the Performance Software,
manufactured and marketed by Dinan Engineering, Inc., 865 Jarvis Drive, Morgan Hill,
CA 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 2000 through 2002 model year BMW vehicles as
described in Exhibit A.

The Performance Software is designed to enhance vehicle performance by altering air—
fuel ratio, ignition timing, camshaft timing, engine rpm limit, governed vehicle speed, and
throttle response (vehicles with electronically controlled throttles) under high engine load
and speed conditions. Vehicles can only be programmed using Dinan‘s Mobile Instant
Power Programmer (MIPP) at authorized Dinan dealers.

This Executive Orderis valid provided that the installation instructions for the
Performance Software will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different
from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Performance Software advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with the transfer to >
an ultimate purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Performance Software, 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 Performance Software using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the Performance Software 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 system shall not be construed
as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual
device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Performance Software 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 from two
2002 model year BMW vehicles which were equipped with Dinan‘s Performance
Software, High Flow Cold Air Intake and High Flow Throttle Body. The vehicles tested
were a 530i certified to the Ulitra Low Emission Vehicle standards and a 325i certified to
the Low Emission Vehicle standards and subject to the Supplemental Federal Test
Procedure test requirements. The test results, in grams per mile with the deterioration
factors applied showed that vehicle emissions did not exceed the emission standards.

                                         Modified        0.05           34

Similar effect on vehicle emissions is expected with the installation of the Performance
Software on vehicles listed in this Executive Order.

This Executive Order is also based on the On—Board Diagnostic I| (OBDII) testing
conducted on the same test vehicles. Test data showed that these components,
including the Performance Software, when installed on the vehicles did not affect the
vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBDII monitoring.

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. —
