                                          EXECUTIVE ORDER D—215—53

                                    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 Exécutive 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 stee! 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.

         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 approval is
         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



This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emissions test data on a
1991 5.2L Dodge Dakota and a 1994 5.71 Chevrolet truck, certified to the tier 1 emission
standards; a 1999 5.3L Chevrolet truck and a 1999 5.4L Ford truck, certified to the LEV
emission standards. Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Tubular Exhaust
System installed on the vehicles met either their comparative baseline emissions or
applicable emission standards 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
OBD II equipped emission test vehicles. Test data showed that the Tubular Exhaust
System when installed on the vehicles did not affect their ability to perform OBD 11


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.
