                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—186—23
                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                        of the Vehicle Code


                                             HKS USA
                                      Nissan Turbocharger Kit

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuant to the authorityvested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Nissan Turbocharger Kit,
manufactured and marketed by HKS USA, 2801 E. 208th Street, Carson, California 90810 has
been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system
and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1991
through 1999 Nissan and Infiniti passenger cars equipped with a 2.0L engine.

The Nissan Turbocharger Kit includes the following main components: Garrett turbocharger with
no waste gate and a 6.5 psi. maximum boost, in—line ECU electrical modification which
increases fuel flow at boost conditions, open element air filter, cast iron exhaust manifold, and a
new EGR tube. The OEM oxygen sensor is relocated to the turbo housing outlet, the original
EGR tube is replaced by a longer EGR tube that captures exhaust from the exhaust connecting
pipe, and the ignition timing is retarded by 3 degrees. The manufacturer recommends 92
octane fuel.

This Executive Order is valid provided the installation instructions for the Nissan Turbocharger
Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle
manufacturer.

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

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


HKS USA                                                        Executive Order D—186—23
Nissan Turbocharger Kit                                        (Page 2 of 3)


Marketing of the Nissan Turbocharger Kit using any identification other than that shown in this       _
Executive Order or marketing of the Nissan Turbocharger Kit 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 Nissan Turbocharger Kit shall not be con‘strued as exemption to sell, offer for
sale, oradvertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Nissan
Turbocharger Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that the
Nissan Turbocharger Kit did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during the Cold Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Testing was conducted on a 1999 Infiniti G20 certified to a
tier 1 emission standard. Emission levels of the vehicle with the Tubocharger Kit installed met
the applicable emission standards. The following test results are in grams per mile with the
deterioration factors applied:

                  NMHC     CO     NOx
Standard          0.25     3.4    0.4
Device w/dfs      0.22     2.8    0.2

This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1I) testing conducted on the
same vehicle. Test data showed that the Nissan Turbocharger Kit when installed on the vehicle
did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Nissan
Turbocharger Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under
conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test procedures. Accordingly,
the ARB 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 turbocharger 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
ARB with reason to suspect that the turbocharger will affect the durability of the emission
control systems, HKS USA 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 ARB 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.
