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

The TES Header is a short tube style header that is manufactured out of 16 gage mild steel
tubing or 17 gage stainless steel tubing. The header includes, where applicable, 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 TES Shorty 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 Shorty Headers advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with its
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the TES Shorty Headers using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the TES Shorty Headers 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 TES Shorty Headers 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 TES
Shorty Headers may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data on a 2000 Honda
Civic SI with a 1.6L engine and certified to the TLEV emission standards. The vehicle in the
modified configuration met the applicable emission standards. Testing consisted of one Cold
Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedures in the modified configuration. The following test
results are in grams per mile with deterioration factors (dfs)applied:

                  NMOG CO         NOx     HCHO
Standard          0.125 3.4       0.4     0.0150
Device w/dfs      0.086 1.2       01 .    0.0023 —

This Executive Orderis also based on the On Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11) testing conducted
on the same vehicle. Test data showed that the TES Header 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

respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

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.                                ’
