                                      EXECUTIVE ORDER D—234—5
                               Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                            of the Vehicle Code

  Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code;

  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 instaliation of the Power Control Module, manufactured
  and marketed by Jones Electronic Technologies (JET}), 17491 Apex Circle, Huntington Beach,
  California 92647 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 applications listed below, excluding any vehicle certified to an ultra low
  emission vehicle (ULEV}) emission standard.

QlodeI-Year      Make                                    Device

  1994—2000      General Motors Vehicles,                Stage 1 or Stage 2 Module

  The Power Control Modules are designed to enhance vehicle performance at near wide open throttle
  driving characteristics. The manufacturer recommends 92 octane fuel with the use of the Power
  Control Module. The Power Control Module is an electronic device that is install between the wiring
  harness and the electronic control unit (ECU) on General Motors applications and in the service port
  of the ECU on Ford applications.

  This Executive Order shall not apply to any Jones Electronic Technologies‘ Power Control Module
  advertised, offered for sale, or sold with or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
  transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

  This Executive Order is granted based on the following emissions test data submitted on a 2000
  Lincoln Navigator and a 2000 Chevrolet C1500, both certified to a low emission vehicle standard.
  The vehicles in the modified configuration met the applicable emission standards. Testing consisted
  of one Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedures in the modified configuration. The following test
  results are in grams per mile with deterioration factors applied:

  . Power Control Module                                             (Page 2 of 2)

_ This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the
   same test vehicles. Test data showed that the Power Control Modulé when installed on the vehicles
   did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD I! monitoring.

   However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Power Control
   Module 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
   Power Control Module 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 results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Power Control
   Module will affect the—durability of the emission control system, JET 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.

   This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Power Control Module
   will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle

   Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Power Control Module, as exempt by the
   Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system
   shall invalidate this Executive Order.

   Marketing of the Power Control Module using any identification other than that shown in this
   Executive Order or marketing of the Power Control Module 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 Power Control Module 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 Power Control
   Module may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


   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 after hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
