                                   State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—215—88

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                                   Edelbrock Corporation
                  E—Rod Supercharger System, P/Ns 15416 and 15426

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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the E—Rod Supercharger
System, manufactured and marketed by the Edelbrock Corporation, 2700 California
Street, Torrance, California 90509, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1995 and older vehicles equipped
with the General Motors E—Rod engine.

The E—Rod Supercharger System consists of the following main components: Eaton
TVS R2300 supercharger, intake manifold, bypass valve, intercooler, intake tubing, open
element air filter, and a reflashed ECM using an Edelbrock supplied handheld tuner. The
stock E—Rod throttle body, mass air flow sensor, and radiator thermostat are retained.
Supercharger pulley diameters are either 3.5" or 4.125". Maximum boost pressure is 7.5
psi. The tuner‘s emission—related data files cannot be modified by the end user. All
supplied fuel hoses are Avon‘s CADbar 9000 series, and fuel and vapor line connectors
supplied with the kit are OEM — equivalent parts. Breather hoses may be replaced with
an SAE30RY rated hose. Part number 15416 is applicable to 5.3L E—Rod engine and
part number 15426 is applicable to 6.2L non—supercharged E—Rod engine.

This Executive Orderis valid provided that the installation instructions for the E—Rod
Supercharger System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those of the kit manufacturer. °

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the E—Rod Supercharger 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 E—Rod Supercharger System using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the E—Rod Supercharger 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.


                                              4.


This Executive Order is granted based on prior submitted emission test data generated on
six test vehicles modified with the Edelbrock Supercharger System. Test results showed
that emission levels, with the supercharger kit installed, met the applicable emission
standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test
cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) test cycle. Examination of the
OBD II system showed that the supercharger kit did not affect OBD II system operation.
The emissions impact for the newly—included E—Rod engines should be similar to those
vehicles covered under existing E.Os.

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 THE E—ROD
SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM.

No élaim 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.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   2 é        day of December 2014.




                      Annette Hebert, Chief
                      Emissions Compliance, Automotive Regulations and Science Division
