                                             «2.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emission test data (Executive
Order D—213—21) and emission test data generated on a 2005 model year 2.2L Honda $2000
certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standards. Previous test results
demonstrated that use of the Honda $2000 Supercharger Kit will not cause adverse effect on
emissions when tested using Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedures (FTP). Test results
on the 2005 model year 2.2L Honda $2000 showed emission levels, with the supercharger
installed, met the applicable emission standards when tested using the Supplemental FTP
(USO6/SC03) test cycles. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Honda $2000
Supercharger Kit does not affect OBD II system operation. Results from emission testing
conducted at Quantum Technologies, located at Lake Forest, California, are shown below (in
grams per mile):

                      USO6/SCO3
