This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the TES Headers will not recommend
tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those ofthe vehicle manufacturer.

The TES Headers is a long tube style header manufactured out of 17 gage stainless steel tubing. The headers
include all necessary connecting pipes which are manufactured out of the same material as the header. The
headers include, where applicable, the heatstove, air injection, and EGR ports. Oxygen sensor is located at the
collector, similar to the stock configuration.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Edelbrock TES Headers advertised, offered for sale, or sold with or
installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the TES Headers using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or
marketing of the TES Headers for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approvalis obtained from the Air Resources Board. Exemption of the TES Headers shall
not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.


EDELBROCK                                                                     Executive Order D—215—44
The TES Headers                                                               (Page 2 of 2)




This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the TES Headers may have on
any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on the following submitted emissions test data using the TES Headers,
P/N 6622:
                     1999 5.3L LEV certified GM C1500 Truck
                     NMOG CO          NOX HCHO
Standards             0.160      44       0.4     0.018
Device w/ dfs         0.057      1.7      0.3     0.001

Test results showed that the TES Headers when installed on the vehicle did not cause tailpipe emissions to
exceed the vehicle‘s applicable emission standard during a Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. This
Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same test vehicle.
Test data showed that the headers when installed on the vehicles did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its
OBD II monitoring.

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 THE EDELBROCK CORPORATION‘S TES HEADERS.

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 a 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.

Executive Order D—215—42, dated June 21, 1999, is superseded and of no further force and effect.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     27* day of October 1999.
