                          EXECUTIVE ORDER D—213—9
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                            of the Vehicle Code


                         VORTECH ENGINEERING, INC.
                       A—TRIM V—1 GEARCHARGER SYSTEM


Pursuant to the authority vested in the'Air Resources Board by Section 27156
of the Vehicle Code; and                                 j

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and
Section 39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the A—Trim V—1
Gearcharger System, designed to output a maximum of 5 psi. on the standard         :
output kits and 8 psi on the high output (H.0.) kits, with a 2.5 inch    .         5
inducer diameter, manufacturedsby Vortech Engineering, Inc., 5351 Bonsai       3   &
Ave., Moorpark, California 93021 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 II), listed with corresponding modifications to the OEM engine systems
in Exhibit A which is attached hereto and incorporated herein.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation of the A—Trim
V—1 Gearcharger System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those submitted by Vortech Engineering, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the A—Trim V—1
Gearcharger System, as exempted by the Air Resources Board, which adversely
affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall
invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the A—Trim V—1 Gearcharger System using any identification
other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the 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 Air Resources Board. Exemption of the A—Trim V—1 Gearcharger System
shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise
any component of the kit as an individual device.         2

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that
the use of the 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 configuration. However, the Air Resources
Board finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the A—Trim

    A—TRIM V—1 GEARCHARGER SYSTEM                        (Page 2 of 2)




    V—1 Gearcharger System may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when
    operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously
    prescribed test procedures.     Accord1ng]y, the Air Resources Board 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—Trim V—1 Gearcharger
    System adversely affects 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 Air Resources Board with reason to
    suspect that the A—Trim V—1 Gearcharger System will affect the durability of
    the emission control, Vortech Engineering, Inc. shall be required to submit
    durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emissions control
    system is not, in fact, affected and/or that thé add—on or modified part
    demonstrates adequate durability.

    In addition to the foregoing, the Air Resources Board 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 ANY
    CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION: BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED    —
    BENEFITS OF VORTECH ENGINEERING, INC.‘S 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.

    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-213F8, dated September 16, 1993, is supefseded and of no
    further force and effect.                   7/
