HKS USA,   INC.                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—186—10
                                                (Page 2 of 3)

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions
for the Air Filter System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those submitted by HKS USA,   Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Air Filter System,
as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive.

Marketing of the Air Filter System using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Air Filter 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.
Exemption of the Air Filter System shall not be construed as exemption to
sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that
the use of the Air Filter System may have on any warranty either expressed
or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an evaluation if emissions tests
were conducted in accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
However, the Air Resources Board finds that reasonable grounds exist to
believe that use of the Air Filter System may adversely affect emissions of
motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the
previously prescribed test procedures.  Accordingly, the Air Resources Board
reserves the right to conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as
such tests are developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from
all cycle phases.  If such test results demonstrate that the Air Filter
System adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions {defined as
those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure}, this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded
as of the date the test results are validated.  Further, if such test
results or other evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reason to
suspect that the Air Filter System will affect the durability of the
emission control system, HKS USA, Inc. shall be required to submit
durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emission control
system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
demonstrates adequate durability.

In addition to the foregoing, 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 Requlations,
Section 2222,     et seq.


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
cral or written communication.

                                               (Page 3 of 3)

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be gréunds for revocation of
this order.  The order may be revoked only after 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 after hearing
that grounds for revocation exist.

Executive Order D—186—6, dated April 21, 1992 is superseded and of no
further force and effect.                    :z
