    Installation of the Gearcharger System may require the installation of the
    following:   Vortech Fuel Management System on the fuel return line,
    installation of a supplemental fuel pump, and modifications made to the intake
    air ducting.   Vehicles that are certified to an Enhanced Evaporative Emission
    Standard must maintain the stock air filter housing.                        An Enhanced Evaporative
    vehicle can be identified by the evaporative family number located on the
    vehicle‘s tune—up label.  The eleventh Gdigit of the twelve digit evaporative
    family will include any one of the following characters which identifies it as
    an Enhanced Evaporative vehicle:           E,   F,   G,   H,   J,   or 1.

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

                                                         (Page 2 of 2)




This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the S
and A Trim V—1 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 confiqguration.       However, the ARB finds that
reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the S and A Trim V—~1
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 S and A Trim V—1 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 S and A Trim V—1
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 ensure 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 S AND A TRIM V—1 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.

Vviolation 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 notifiif/zz~a copy of this order.

Executed at El Monte,   California,   this   ;:135 day      ptember 1997.
