                                     State of California
                                 AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D-176-32

                        Relating to Exerr~ptionsUnder Section 27156
                                   of the California Vehicle Code

                                  Dinan Engineering, Inc.
                             High Flow Cold Air lntake System

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 Cold Air lntake
System, produced and marketed by Dinan Engineering, Inc. of 865 Jarvis Drive, Morgan
HIII, California 95037, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1999 .through 2007 model year BMW vehicles not
equipped wi'th a hydrocarbon absorber in the stock air filter housing as listed in Exhibit A.

The High Flow Cold Air lntake System (Air Box Kit) includes a new air filter housing lid
and a cotton gauze filter element. The stock air filter housing bottom (dirty air side) is cut
open to attached tubing that captures cold air from the bottom of the vehicle. The stock
air flow meter is transferred to the new air filter housing lid.

The High Flow Cold Air lntake System (Tube Kit) consists of an aluminum tube which
connects to the vehicle's stock air flow meter and to an open element type air filter
located in a protected compartment.

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

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the High Flow Cold Air lntake
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.

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

Marketing of the High Flow Cold Air lntake System using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the High Flow Cold Air lntake 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 Cold Air lntake System units may have on any warranty either expressed or implied
by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on a prior Executive Order for Dinan
Engineering , Inc. (D-176-21) which exempted the High Flow Cold Air lntake System
(Tube Kit) on BMW vehicles certified to the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure
(SFTP US06) test cycle and on submitted emission test data generated on a 2006 model
year BMW 330i, engine test group 6BMXV03.ON52, certified to the Low Emission
Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) err~issionstandards, modified with
the High Flow Cold Air lntake System (Air Box Kit). Test results on the BMW 330i
showed that emission levels, with Dinan Engineering, Inc.'s High Flow Cold Air lntake
System installed, met the applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold-Start
CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the SFTP US06 test cycles. Examination of
the OBD II system showed the High Flow Cold Air lntake System did not affect OBD II
system operation. Results from emission testing conducted at Automotive Testing and
Development Services, Inc., located in Ontario, California are listed below with
deterioration factors applied.
