                                   State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—38

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                                 Dinan Engineering, Inc.
                                   M—Car Stoker Engine

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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the M—Car Stoker Engine,
manufactured and marketed by Dinan Engineering, Inc. of 865 Jarvis Drive, Morgan Hill,
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 the following vehicle applications: 2008 to 2013
model year BMW M3 vehicles equipped with a V8 4.0L engine and 2006 to 2010 model
year BMW MS5 and MG6 vehicles equipped with a V10 5.0L engine.

The M—Car Stoker Engine is an engine upgrade package designed to increase the
displacement of the stock engine. The M—Car Stoker Engine includes the following new
engine components: Crankshaft, connecting rods, pistons, piston rings, and an ECU
program. M5 and M6 models also get a larger diameter air flow meter. All other
components of the engine are stock. The new ECU program is uploaded through the
OBD II port. There are no user adjustments. Maximum rear wheel horsepower gain is
50 for MS5 and M6 and 40 for M3.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the M—Car
Stoker Engine will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those of Dinan Engineering.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the M—Car Stoker Engine, 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 M—Car Stoker Engine using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the M—Car Stoker Engine 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
M—Car Stoker Engine may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.


                                             5.


This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emission test data
generated on one test vehicle modified with the M—Car Stoker Engine. Test results
showed that emission levels, with the modification installed, met the applicable emission
standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test
cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) test cycle. Examination of
the OBD II system showed that the M—Car Stoker Engine did not affect OBD II system
operation. Results from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and
Development Services, Inc., located in Ontario, California, are shown below (in grams
per mile).

The Air Resources Board 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 THE M—CAR
STOKER ENGINE.

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.

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.
