exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on

performed at the Air Resources Board (ARB) on a 1999 Toyota Solara equipped with a
3.0L engine and a 1999 Ford Explorer equipped with a 4.0L engine to demonstrate the
compatibility of the Twin Power Ignition Amplifier System with the vehicles‘ OBD II
system.

This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or mechanism advertised,
offered for sale or sold with, or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for this device
will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by
the system manufacturer.

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