                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                       of the Vehicle Code

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 JBA Headers, manufactured and
marketed by Automotive Engineered Products, Inc., 7149 Mission Gorge Road, San Diego,
California, 92120 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 those applicable General Motors and Ford vehicles listed in Exhibit A of this
Executive Order. Vehicles that are emissions certified to the Ultra—Low Emissions Vehicle
(ULEV) emission standards and/or the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP)
standards are excluded from this Executive Order.

The JBA Headers are a shorty style header, manufactured out of either 16 gage stainless steel
or 14 gage mild steel. The headers bolt to the stock connecting pipes and retain the oxygen
sensor in its stock location.                                     j

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

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the 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 Automotive Engineered Products, Inc.‘s JBA
Headers 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 headers using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order
. or marketing of the 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 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 headers
may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

     JBA Headers                                                         (Page 2 of 2)

     This Executive Order is granted based on the following submitted emissions test data on two
     vehicles certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standards:

                       1998 Ford Expedition, 5.4L                1999 C1500 5.3L.

                       NMOG CO         NOX     HCHO              NMOG CO        NOX HCHO
     Standard          0.195 5.0       0.5     0.022             0.160 4.4      0.4 0.018
     Device w/ dfs     0.157 1.6       01      0.001             0.098 1.4      0.3 0.002

     Test results of both vehicles showed that tailpipe emissions with the JBA Header installed met
     the vehicles‘ applicable emission standards during Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
     This Executive Order is also based on an On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on
     the same test vehicles. Test data showed that the headers when installed on the vehicles did
     not affect the vehicles‘ ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.                          '

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

     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.
