This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions
for the Sport Turbo will not recommend tuning the vehicle to sp901f1cat10ns
different from those submitted by HKS USA, Inc.

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

Marketing of the Sport Turbo using any identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of the Sport Turbo 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
Sport Turbo 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 Sport Turbo may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

                                                           (Page 2 of 2)           |

This Executive Order is granted based on results from emissions tests
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 Sport Turbo 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 Sport Turbo
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Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of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 Sport Turbo 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 Reqgulations,
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
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 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.         /9</L

Executed at El Monte,      California,   this    /    da      October,     1993.
