 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—45—9;

  iT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Honda 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 Honda
  vehicles listed below, excluding vehicles equipped with the following engine families which have
  been certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) or more stringent emission standards: 1996
  model—year, THN1.6VJG3EK, 1997 model—year, VHN1.6VJG3EK, 1998 model—year,
_ WHNXVO1.6CA3, WHNXVO1.6KA4, 1999 model—year, XHNXVO1.6CA3, XHNXVO1.6TA3,
  XHNXVO1.6KA4, and 2000 model—year, YHNXVO1.6CA3, YHNXVO1.6TA3.

        I—¥              Model                Engine
  1994 to   2001         Integra GSR          1.8L
  1997 to   2001         Integra Type R       1.8L.

  The Honda Turbocharger Kit includes the following main components: Garrett turbocharger with
_ no waste gate and a 6 psi. maximum boost, in—line ECU electrical modification to increase fuel
  flow at boost conditions, open element air filter, and an exhaust connecting pipe with an oxygen
  sensor fitting, similar to the OEM configuration.

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


_ HKS USA                                                      Executive Order D—186—25
  Honda Turbocharger Kit                                       (Page 2 of 3)



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

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Honda 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.

Marketing of the Honda Turbocharger Kit using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Honda 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 Honda Turbocharger Kit 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 the use of the Honda
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
 Honda Turbocharger Kit did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during the Cold Start
 CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Testing was conducted on a 2000 Acura Integra certified to
the Transitional Low—Emission Vehicle (TLEV) emission standard. Emission levels of the
 vehicle with the Tubocharger Kit installed met the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards. The
 following test results are in grams per mile with the deterioration factors applied:

                  NMOG CO         Nox     HCHO
Standard          0.125 3.4       0.4    0.015
Device w/idfs     0.090 1.5       0.1    0.002

This Executive Order is also based on an Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) test conducted on the
same vehicle. Test data showed that the Honda 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 Honda
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.

 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 HKS USA‘S HONDA TURBOCHARGER KIT.

 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.                                   '

 Executed at El Monte, California, this 2 3 '\fi{y of May 2001.
