                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—187—5
                    Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                of the Vehicle Code

                               SLP   ENGINEERING,   INC.

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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:  That the installation of the Flowbooster, P/N
22100, manufactured by SLP Engineering, Inc. of 1501 Industrial Way North, Toms
River, New Jersey 08755, 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 all 1985—97 General
Motors vehicles equipped with the 5.0/5.7 liter TPI gasoline engine.

The Flowbooster is an air—foil that is designed to mount in front of the
throttle body‘s air inlet.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for this
kit will not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from
those submitted by SLP Engineering, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the devices, as exempt by
the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is
obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use
of the device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicles manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation of the
emission impact of the device if tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure.  However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to
believe that use of the Flowbooster 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 Flowbooster adversely affect
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 Flowbooster will affect the durability of
the emission control system, SLP 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

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.

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 reéevoked only after 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 after hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.
