                         EXECUTIVE ORDER D—228—1
                Relatlng to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                           of the Vehicle COde

                    AUTOTHORITY PERFORMANGE ENGINEERING
                         PERFORMANCE SOFTWARE CHIPS

Pursuant to the authorlty vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and
39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—5;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:    That the installation of the Performance
Software Chips manufactured by AutoThority Performance Engineering of
3769—B Pickett Road, Fairfax, Virginia have been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution control devices and,
therefore, are exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for 1983 to 1992 Porsches,   1982 to 1993 BMWs, and 1990 to 1992 VW
Corrados as listed in Exhibit A, which is attached hereto and incorporated
herein.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
the Performance Software Chips will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes'made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as
exempted by the ARB, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the ARB.              -

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
use of this device may have on any warranty either expressedor lmplled by
the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on results from emissions tests
conducted in accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of
the Performance Software Chips may adversely affect emissions of motor
vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the
previously prescribed test procedures. Accordingly, the ARB reserves the
right to conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as such tests are
.developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle
phases. ~If such test results demonstrate that the Performance Software
Chips adversely affect emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as
those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded
as of the date the test results are validated.      Further,   if such test

         .                        2.                         (Page 2 of 2)


results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the
Performance Software Chips will affect the durability of the emission
control system, AutoThority Performance Engineering shall be required to
submit durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emission
control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified
part demonstrates adequate durability.                              '
In addition to the foregoing, the ARB 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, Caleornla 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 AUTOTHORITY PERFORMANCE ENGINEERING‘S PERFORMANCE SOFTWARE
CHIPS.

made with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other
oral or written communxcation.

Section 17500 of the Business and Professions Code makes untrue or
misleading advertising unlawful, and Section 17534 makes violation

Section 43644 of the Health and Safety Code provides as follows:

        "43644,   (a)   No person shall install, sell, offer for sale, or
        advertise, or, except in an application to the state board for
        certification of a device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle
        pollution control device for use on any used motor vehicle unless that
        device has been certified by the state board.  No person shall sell,
