                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D-I 86-31

                                  Relating to Exemptions under
                                Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                        HKS U.S.A., Inc.
                                    Super Mega Flow 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;

    I T IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Super Mega Flow lntake Kit,
     manufactured by HKS U.S.A., Inc. of 134.01 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 Super Mega Flow lntake Kit is exempt from
     the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the vehicles
     listed in Attachment A.

    The Super Mega Flow 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 Super Mega Flow lntake Kit and Racing Suction
    lntake Kit (which is similar to the Super Mega Flow lntake Kit).

    If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the Super
    Mega Flow 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 Super Mega
    Flow lntake Kit do not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from
    those of the vehicle nianufacturer.

    Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Super Mega Flow 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 Super Mega Flow 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 Super Mega Flow 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 Super Mega Flow 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 use of the
Super Mega Flow 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
corr~munication.

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.

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 U.S.A., INC.'S
SUPER MEGA FLOW INTAKE KIT.

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     j/&           day of June 2009.
