                                    EXECUTIVE ORDER D—231—18
                             Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                         of the Vehicle Code

                                   WHIPPLE INDUSTRIES, INC.

Pursuant to the authority vested in the AirdiResources 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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the WhippleCharger, manufactured
and marketed by Whipple Industries, Inc., 3292 N. Weber Ave. Fresno, California, 93722 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 the following
vehicle application, excluding those certified to the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV)
emission standards :      _

Chrysler PT—Cruiser
                                              Pulley Dia.
Year          Engine   Kit            Supercharger/Crankshaft         Compressor Size

2001         2 AL      WIK—PT—2.4               2.8759/6.30"               1.2L

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the supercharger will
not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle
manufacturer. Whipple recommends that only 92 octane fuel be used.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the supercharger, 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 Whipple Industries WhippleCharger advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the supercharger using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of the supercharger 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 supercharger shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or
advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

Whipple Industries, Inc.                                          Executive Order D—231—18
WhippleCharger                                                _   (Page 2 of 3)

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the supercharger
may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on the following emissions test data submitted by Whipple
Industries: A 2001 2.4L PT—Cruiser, certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission

                   NMOG CO         NOX      HCHO
Standards          0.075 3.4       0.2     0.015
device             0.042 0.9       0.1     0.001

Test results showed that the WhippleCharger when installed on the vehicle did not causetailpipe
emissions to exceed the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards during a Cold Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on the On Board Diagnostic II (OBD
I1) testing conducted on the same test vehicle. Test data showed that the WhippleCharger when
installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which show that
emissions are not affected during the Cold—Start CVS 75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the
ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Whipple supercharger 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
supercharger adversely affects 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 results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the
supercharger will affect the durability of the emission control system, Whipple 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, California Code of Regulations,
Section 2222, et seq.

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 has been made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.
