                                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—213—16
                               Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                            of the Vehicle Code

                                    VORTECH ENGINEERING, INC.
                   To              6.5 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—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the add—on A, R, S, T, SC, and RC Trim
V—1 Gearcharger Systems, manufactured by Vortech Engineering, Inc., of 5351 Bonsai Ave., Moorpark,
California 93021 with a maximum boost of 6.5 psi., 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 the vehicle applications listed in Exhibit A, excluding any vehicle _
certified to a transitional low emission vehicle (TLEV) or low emission vehicle (LEV) emission
standards.

The following 1998 model—year engine families certified to the TLEV or LEV emission standards are
excluded from this Executive Order: Ford vehicles, WFMXVO3.8ABA WFMXVO4.6DBA (Mustang),
WFMXTO4.O2DC, WFMXTO4.0AAA, WFMXTO4.0DAA, WFMXTO4.0EAA, WFMXTO4.0FAA, and
WFMXA0S.4JGC (Trucks), GM Trucks: WGMXAQ4.3188, WGMXTO4.3185, WGMXTO4.3187,
WGMXA05S.7185, and WGMXA05.7186, Chrysler Trucks: WCRXTO242220, WCRXTO242120,
WCRXA0360H31, WCRXA0360H32, and WCRXAO0360J31.

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.

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, R, S, T, SC, and RC Trim V—1 Gearcharger Systems using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the A, R, S, T, SC, and RC Trim V—1
Gearcharger Systems 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, R, S, T, SC, and RC Trim V—
1 Gearcharger Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on prior emissions testing on a 1990 F—350 truck with a 7.5L
gasoline engine, comparative intake manifold air pressure testing, using the Hot 505 drive cycle, on a 1992
Ford Mustang with a 5.0L engine, 1995 Chevrolet Camaro with a 5.7L engine, and a 1990 General Motors
C1500 truck with a 5.7L engine, and On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing on a 1996 Mustang with a
4.6L, engine and a 1997 Camaro with a 5.7L engine. The V—1 Gearcharger System did not affect the
tailpipe emissions or intake manifold pressure, and on OBD II vehicles the Gearcharger System did not
affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring. However, the ARB finds that reasonable


Vortech Engineering, Inc.                                                     Executive Order D—213—16
Supercharger Kit                                                                             (Page 2 of 2)




grounds exist to believe that use of the A, R, S, T, SC, and RC Trim V—1 Gearcharger Systems 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, R, S, T, SC, and RC
Trim V—1 Gearcharger Systems 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, R, S, T, SC, and
RC Trim V—1 Gearcharger Systems 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 A, R, S, T, SC, and RC TRIM V—1
GEARCHARGER SYSTEMS.

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.
