                                        of the Vehicle Code

                             Automotive Performance Systems, Inc.
                                    Neuspeed Power Pack

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 271 56 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-02-003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Neuspeed Power Pack,
manufactured and marketed by Automotive Performance Systems, Inc., 3300 Corte Malpaso,
Camarilla, California, 93012 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 271 56
of the Vehicle Code for the following vehicle applications as listed in Exhibit A.

The Neuspeed Power Pack consists of a Neuspeed P-Flo that replaces the factory plastic
airbox with a K&N open element air filter or a K&N replacement filter that is installed in the
factory air filter box, and a Neuspeed P-Chip (engine control chip).

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Neuspeed Power
Pack will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by
the device manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Automotive Performance Systems, Inc.'s Neuspeed
Power Pack advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Neuspeed Power Pack, 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 Neuspeed Power Pack using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Neuspeed Power Pack 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 Neuspeed Power Pack 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 Neuspeed
Power Pack may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions test data generated on a 2002 Volkswagen
Golf certified to the Ultra Low-Emission Vehicle (ULEV) emission standards. Emission levels of
the modified vehicle met the applicable emission standards over the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal
Test Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure US06 test cycles.
Results are in grams per mile with deterioration factors applied to the CVS-75 results:

                  NMOG CO        NOx      HCHO          NMHC-tNOx         CO
Standards         0.040 1.7      0.2      0.008            0.14           8.0
Device            0.012 0.8      0.03     0.001            0.05           I:I

This Executive Order is also based on an On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) test conducted on the
same test vehicle. Test data showed that the Neuspeed Power Pack when installed on the
vehicle did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.


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

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 is made after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   f l d day of June 2002.
