                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—176—42

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                                     Dinan Corporation
                             DINANTronics Performance Tuner

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 DINANTronics
Performance Tuner, manufactured and marketed by Dinan Corporation 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 turbocharged BMW
gasoline vehicle applications, as listed in Exhibit A.

The DINANTronics Performance Tuner consists of a control module installed in series
to the stock electronic control unit. No other changes are required for proper
installation. There are no user adjustment to emissions related data files.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the
DINANTronics Performance Tuner will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those of Dinan Engineering.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on two
test vehicles: a 2014 model year BMW 650i, engine test group EBMXVO4.4N63, certified
to the Low Emission Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission
standards (see data on page 2) and a 2015 model year BMW 328i, engine test group
FBMXVO2.0N26, certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Super Ultra Low Emission
Vehicle (LEV II SULEV) emission standards (data listed on review sheet). Test results on
the BMW 6501 and the BMW 328i showed that emission levels, with Dinan Corporation‘s


                                             3.


DINANTronics Performance Tuner installed, met the applicable emission standards
when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycles. Examination of the
OBD II system showed the DINANTronics Performance Tuner did not affect OBD !I
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.

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
DINANTRONICS PERFORMANCE TUNER.

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

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 is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
