                          EXECUTIVE ORDER D—213—10
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                            of the Vehicle Code

                         VORTECH ENGINEERING, INC.
                      5 AND 8 PSI. GEARCHARGER SYSTEM


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—5;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the add—on
A and S Trim V—1, V—2 Gearcharger Systems, manufactured by Vortech
Engineering, Inc., of 5351 Bonsai Ave., Moorpark, California 93021 with a
max. boost of 8 psi., and 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 those
vehicles, except those equipped with on—board diagnostics II (OBD I1I),
listed with corresponding modifications to the OEM engine systems in Exhibit
A which is attached hereto and incorporated herein.

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

Marketing of the A and S Trim V—1, V—2 Gearcharger System using   any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or   marketing of
the A and S Trim V—1, V—2 Gearcharger System for an application   other than
those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless   prior
approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
A and S Trim V—1, V—2 Gearcharger System may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on comparative intake manifold
air pressure testing which was recorded during a Hot—Start 505 LA4 drive
cycle in the baseline and modified configuration.   However, the ARB finds
that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the A and S Trim V—1,
V—2 Gearcharger 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 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 A and S Trim V—1, V—2
Gearcharger System 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 A and S Trim V—1, V—2 Gearcharger System will affect the
durability of the emission control system, Vortech 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 Regulations, 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
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF VORTECH ENGINEERING, INC.‘S A AND S TRIM V—1, V—2 GEARCHARGER
SYSTEM.

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 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.

The Bureau of Automotive Repair will be notified by a copy of this order.

Executive Order D—213—9, dated July 25, 1995, is superseded and of no
further force and effect.
