                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D-186-30

                              Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                    HKS U.S.A., Inc.
                                 Racing Suction lntake Kit

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 Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G-02-003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Racing Suction lntake Kit,
manufactured by HKS U.S.A., Inc. of 13401 South Main Street, Los Angeles, California
90061, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control systems, and therefore, the Racing Suction lntake Kit is exempt from
the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the vehicles
listed in Attachment A.

The Racing Suction lntake Kit includes an open-element air filter, aluminum inlet
tube(s), and assorted mounting brackets and hoses, including the positive crankcase
ventilation breather hose in some applications.

This Executive Order is based on Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure tests,
Supplemental Federal Test Procedures, and On-Board Diagnostic II System tests
conducted by HKS U.S.A., Inc. with the Racing Suction lntake Kit and the Super Mega
Flow lntake Kit (which is similar to the Racing Suction lntake Kit).

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the Racing
Suction lntake Kit will affect the durability of the emission control system, HKS
U.S.A., Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of the
vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected andlor that the add-on or
modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Racing
Suction lntake Kit do not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Racing Suction lntake Kit,
as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicles' emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Racing Suction lntake Kit using identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order
shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

Exemption of the Racing Suction lntake Kit shall not be construed as exemption to sell,
offer for sale, or advertise any component of the system as an individual device.

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

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the u.seof the
Racing Suction lntake Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

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

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
California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.


Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
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 Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this       q&    day of June 2009.
