                  Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                             of the Vehicle Code

                     AUTOMOTIVE PERFORMANCE _SYSTEMS, INC.
                        NEUSPEED P—FLO AIR FILTER KIT
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 Neuspeed P—FLO Air
Filter Kit manufactured by Automotive Performance Systems, Inc. of 3300
Corte Malpaso, Camarillo, CA 93012, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness pf the applicable vehicle pollution control system and,
therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for the following Volkswagen applications:

1993/94   Volkswagens equbfiged with a 2.8 Titer engine.
   —                 C‘QF”
1988—92    Golf & JettasVequipped with a 1.8 liter engine.

1993—95    Cabriolet, Jetta, & Golf equipped with a 2.0 Titer engine.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
this air filter will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the kit, as exempt by
the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of a
vehicle‘s pollution contro] system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation which
shows that emissions are not affected during the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure.   However, the Air Resources Board finds that reasonable
grounds exist to believe that use of the Neuspeed P—Flo Air Filter Kit may
adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions

NEUSPEED P—FLO AIR FILTER KIT                      (Page 2 of 2)


outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test procedures.
Accordingly, the Air Resources Board 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 Neuspeed P—Fio Air Filter Kit adversely affects
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 Air Resources Board with reason to suspect that the Neuspeed P—
Flo Air Filter Kit will affect the durability of the emission control,
Automotive Performance Systems, Inc. shall be required to submit durabiTity
data to show that the durability of the vehicle emissions 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 Air Resources Board 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 procédures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations,
Section 2222, et seq.

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 AUTOMOTIVE PERFORMANCE SYSTEMS‘ NEUSPEED P—FLO AIR FILTER KIT.
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 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.

Executive Order Number D—236—4 is hereby superseded and no longer of any
force or effect.                           /\/é,
