This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
this Power Flow Air Filter System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those submitted by HKS TSA, Inc..

Changes made to the deéign or operating conditions of the Power Flow Air
Filter System as exempt by the ARB, which adversely afifect the performance
of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
Order .

         POWER FLOW AIR FILTER SYSTEM                      (Page 2 of 3)

        Marketing of this Power Flow Air Filter System using any identification
        other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of this Power
        Flow Air Filter System for an application other than those listed in this
        Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from
        the ARB.  Exemption of the Power Flow Air Filter System 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 is granted based on a determination that the device
        would not show an adverse effect in emissions if tested using the Cold—~Start
        CVS~—75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the ARB finds that reagonable
         grounds exist to believe that use of the Power Flow Air Filter System 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 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
         Power Flow Air Filter System 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        ~effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are validated.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
    l   to suspect that the Power Flow Air Filter System will affect the durability
'       of the emission control system, HKS USA, Inc. 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 Requlations section 2222 et seq.

        This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
        use of this Power Flow Air Filter System 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 communication.

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