                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                        of the Vehicle Code

                                Automotive Engineered Products
                                        _ JBA Headers

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—02—003;

IT 18 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, excluding the following engine test groups: 2005 model year
General Motors, 5GMXVO3.8044, 5GMXTO03.5145, 2004 model year General Motors,
4GMXTO03.5145, 2005 model year Ford, 5FMXTO2.31EE, 5FMXTO2.31EF, 5FMXVO2.01GB,
2004 model year Ford 4FMXVO2.3VLC, and 2003 model year Ford 3FMXVO2.3VLC.

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 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.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data generated on a 2004
model year General Motors 3.8L Grand Prix and a Ford 4.6L Crown Victoria, both certified to
the Low Emission Vehicle II Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II LEV) emission standards. Testing
consisted of a Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental Federal
Test Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycle. Results are in grams per mile with deterioration
factors added to CVS—75 FTP results. Emission levels of the modified vehicles met the
applicable emission standards.

the same test vehicles Test data showed that the JBA Header when installed on the vehicles
did not affect their ability to perform OBD II monitoring.
