                                                  —3.


Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the WhippleCharger, 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, Inc.‘s 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.

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 emissions test data generated on the following test
 vehicles using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental
 Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6/SCO3) test cycles: 2004 model—year Ford Ranger,
 2001 and 2002 model—year Chrysler PT—Cruiser, 2001 model—year Ford Excursion, and 1999
 model—year General Motors C1500 truck. 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.
