                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—28
                       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—02—003;

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,
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 2003 model year BMW vehicles as
described in Exhibit A, excluding 2003 model year 325 and 330 models with the
following engine test groups, 3BMXVO3.0UL2 and 3BMXVO2.5M56.

The High Flow Throttle Body consists of a stock BMW throttle body that is modified to
increase the overall inside diameter by 5 percent. A new throttle plate is also installed.
The modified throttle body is port matched to the stock intake manifold.

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 High Flow Throttle Body 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 cohditions 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. 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 that 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 prior evaluation which determined that Dinan
Engineering, Inc.‘s High Flow Throttle Body does not cause an adverse effect on
emissions of selected passenger cars (D—176—22), nor does it affect the vehicles‘ ability
to perform On—Board Diagnostic [ (OBD II) system monitoring. The same effect on
emissions and OBD II system monitoring is expected on the vehicles listed in this
Executive Order.

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 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 of 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 is made,
after the hearing, that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   _J Z”" day of May 2004.
