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—02—003;

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 gasoline powered General Motors and Ford vehicles listed in
 Exhibit A of this Executive Order. Vehicles under the following test groups are emissions
 certified to the Ultra—Low Emissions Vehicle (ULEV) emission standards and/or the
 Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) standards, and are excluded from this
 Executive Order: Ford, 2001model—year, 1FMXHO6.8TH5, 1FMXHOS5.4THS5, 1FMXVO4.6VF5,

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.

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 applyto 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.

This Executive Order is granted based on a prior evaluation which determined that Automotive
Engineered Products, Inc.‘s JBA Headers does not cause an adverse effect on emissions of
selected vehicles (Executive Order D—216—26), and does not affect the vehicle‘s ability to
perform its On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system monitoring. The same effect on emissions
and OBD II system monitoring is expected fromthe use of the JBA Headers on vehicles listed in
this Executive Order.


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.

Executed at El Monte, California, this [7'7{ day of March 2004.
