                           EXECUTIVE ORDER D—235—2
                Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                           of the Yehicle Code

                   TUNED PORT INDUCTION SPECIALTIES, INC.
          T.P.I.S. ADJUSTABLE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, P/N 100—002

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board 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 T.P.I.S.
Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, P/N 100—002, manufactured by Tuned Port
Induction Specialties, Inc., of 4255 Country Road 10 East, Chaska, MN 55318,
has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
polliution 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.1.$. Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, P/N 100—002, will not
recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by Tuned Port Induction Specialities, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the T.P.1.5.
Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, P/N 100—002, 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.I.S. Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, P/N 100—002,
using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or
marketing of this T.P.1.S$. Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, P/N 100—002,
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.1.5. Adjustable Fue! Pressure Regulator, P/N 100—002, 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 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.1.S. Adjustable Fuel Pressure
Regulator 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.I.S. Adjustable Fue] Pressure Regulator adversely affects

T.P.I.S. AOJUSTABLE FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR      (Page 2 of 2)



emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as those conditions which are
beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CYS—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 T.P.I1.S. Adjustable Fuel
Pressure Requlator will affect the durability of the emission control
system, Tuned Port Inductions Specialties, 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.

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.1.$. Adjustable Fuel Pressure Regulator, P/N 100—002, may
have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVE QOROER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESQURCES BOARD OF
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF THE TUNED PORT INDUCTION SPECIALTIES, INC. T.P.1.S. ADJUSTABLE
FUEL PRESSURE REGULATOR, P/N 100—002.

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.

Viclation 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 receipt of the
request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after the
