obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the HKS

2007 model year 1.5L Honda Fit certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Low Emission
Vehicle (LEV II LEV) emission standards and modified with the HKS Bolt-On Turbo Kit.

the applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal
Test Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SF-TP US06)
test cycles. Boost pressure was measured at 4.3 psi. during the F-TP and 5.1 psi.
during the SFTP US06. Examination of the OBD II system showed the HKS Bolt-On
Turbo Kit did not affect OBD II system operation. Results from emission testing
conducted at California Environmental Engineering, Santa Ana, California are listed
below in grams per mile with deterioration factors applied.
