                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     of the Vehicle Code

                                    Edelbrock Corporation
                                   Tubular Exhaust 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 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 Tubular Exhaust System,
manufactured and marketed by the Edelbrock Corporation, 2700 California Street,
Torrance, California 90509—2936 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.

This Executive Order is valid‘provided that the installation instructions for the Tubular
Exhaust System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
of the vehicle manufacturer.

The Tubular Exhaust System is manufactured out of 16 gage mild steel tubing or 17 gage
stainless steel tubing. The header includes, where applicable, connecting pipes, the heat
stove, air injection and EGR ports. The location of the oxygen sensor is not changed.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Tubular Exhaust System, 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 Tubular Exhaust System advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the Tubular Exhaust System using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the Tubular Exhaust System 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 Tubular Exhaust System shall
not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit
as an individual device.

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

                                                —23—


This Executive Order is granted based on the following emissions test data on three
vehicles certified to a Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standard:

                   1999 Ford F—150, 5.4L                     1999 Chevrolet C1500, 5.3L.

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Tubular Exhaust System installed on
the vehicles met the vehicle‘s applicable emission standard during a Cold Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on the On Board Diagnostic II
(OBD II) testing conducted on the same test vehicles. Test data showed that the Tubular
Exhaust System when installed on the vehicles did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform
its OBD 11 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 TUBULAR EXHAUST 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 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 is made after the
hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executive Orders D—215—40, dated March 1999, D—215—44, dated October 1999, and D—
215—45, dated February 2000 are superseded and of no further force and effect.

 Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the shorty style Tubular Exhaust System installed on the vehicles
 met the vehicles‘ applicable emission standards during a Cold start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Edelbrock
 also conducted an on—board diagnostic (OBD) II testing on the same test vehicles. Test data showed that the
 shorty style Tubular Exhaust System did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD II monitoring. The same
 impact on emissions and OBD 11 function is expected from the installation of the shorty style Tubular Exhaust
 System on the vehicles in Edelbrock‘s requested application.

 Executive Order No. D—215—40 and D—215—44 cover exemptions for long—tube style headers for various Chrysler,
 Ford and GM vehicles. Edelbrock requests that this vehicle coverage be updated to include new part numbers and
—~—models for Chrysler and GM vehicles. No additional testing was conducted in support of this request. Edelbrock
 reviously submitted test data, on a 1999 Chevrolet 1500 truck certified to the LEV standards, in support of
  Executive Order No. D—215—44. The update includes 2001 GM vehicles which are certified to the LEV standards
 and use the same part numbers 6600 and 6622 as the previous models. Since the vehicles are a carry—over from
 the previous model years and there are no changes to the header design, no impact on emissions is expected from
 inclusion of the 2001 GM vehicles.

 The update on Chrysler vehicles involves new part numbers and inclusion of vehicle models certified to TLEV and
 LEV standards. Previous emissions data submitted by Edelbrock in support of D—215—40 were based on testing
 using a Chrysler truck certified to the Tier 1 emission standards.. Edelbrock has tested a 2001 5.9L Dodge Dakota
 truck using a shorty style header; however, this would not represent the emissions impact of a long—tube style
 header. Therefore, staff limited the update to cover only Chrysier vehicles certified to the Tier 1 standards.
 Inclusion of Chrysler vehicles certified to TLEV and LEV standards would require testing the long—tube style header
 using a Chrysler vehicle certified to the LEV standards.

 For the F150, NMOG and HCHO were calculated using the following conversion factors for the vehicle:
 NMOG/NMHC=1.0141 and HCHO/NMHC= 0.011, measured values, NMHC 0.080, CO 0.767, NOX 0:149. 50K
 deterioration factors (dfs) used were NMOG, 0.0171, CO, 0.49, NOx, 0.11 and HCHO, 0.009. Vehicle test weight
 and horse power, 6000 lbs. and 18.6.

 For the Dakota, NMOG and HCHO were calculated using the following conversion factors for the vehicle:
 NMOG/NMHC=1.037 and HCHO/NMHC= 0.0227, measured values, NMHC 0.071, CO 1.086, NOX 0.088. 50K
 deterioration factors (dfs) used were NMOG, 1.0, CO, 1.1, NOx, 1.1 and HCHO, 1.1. Vehicle test weight and horse
 power, 5000 lbs. and 14.0.
