                         EXECUTIVE ORDER D—235—1
                Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the Vehicle Code

                   TUNED PORT INDUCTION SPECIALTIES, INC.
               T.P.1I.S. THROTTLE B0DY AIR—FOIL, P/N 100—001

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156
of the ¥ehicle 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 T.P.I.S. Throttle
Body Air Foil, P/N 100—001, manufactured by Tuned Port Induction
Specialties, Inc., of 4255 Country Road 10 East, Chaska, MN 5§5318, 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 1985—1991 model—year Camaro/Firebird with a
tuned port fuel—injected 305/350 CID engine and 1985—1991 model—year
Corvette.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
this T.P.I.S$. Throttle Body Air—Foil, P/N 100—001, will not recommend tuning
the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by Tuned Port
Induction Specialties, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the T.P.1.S.
Throttle Body Air—Foil, P/N 100—001, as exempt by the Air Resources Board
(ARB), which adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this T.P.1.$S. Throttle Body Air—Foil, P/N 100—001, using an
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of
this T.P.1.S. Throttle Body Air—Foil, P/N 100—001, for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the ARB. Exemption of the T.P.1.S. Throttle Body
Air—Foil, P/N 100—001, shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer
for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order is granted based on a determination that the device
would not show an adverse effect in emissions if tested using the Cold—Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.    However, the ARB finds that reasonable
grounds exist to believe that use of the T.P.I.S. Throttle Body Air—Foil 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 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
T.P.1.$. Throttle Body Air—Foil adversely affects emissions during off—cycle

T.P.1.S. THROTTLE B00Y AIR—FOIL                      (Page 2 of 2)



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.
Ffurther, if such test results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason
to suspect that the T.P.I.S. Throttle Body Air—Foil will affect the
durability of the emission control system, Tuned Port Inductions
Speciaities, Inc. 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.                          20

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 Requlations, section 2222 et seq.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
use of this T.P.I.S. Throttle Body Air—Foil, P/N 100—001, may have on any
warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF THE TUNED PORT INDUCTION SPECIALTIES, INC. T.P.I.S. THROTTLE
BODY AIR—FOIL, P/N 100—001.

No claim of any kind , such as "Approved by the Air Résources 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 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
