                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—238
                    Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                        —       of the Vehicle Code

                 INTENDED ACCELERATION AUDI COMPUTER MODIFICATION

 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 Intended
 Acceleration Audi computer modification, manufactured by Intended
 Acceleration, 2032 Excelsior Drive SE, Olympia, WA 98501, 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 1981—1992 model—year Audi vehicles powered by a 2.2
 liter (136 CID) turbo—charged gasoline engine.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
 this Intended Acceleration Audi computer modification will not recommend
     inminy the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by
 Intended Acceleration.

 Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Intended
 Acceleration Audi computer modification 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 Intended Acceleration Audi computer modification using any
 identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of
 this Intended Acceleration Audi computer modification 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 Intended
 Acceleration Audi computer modification 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—175 Federal Test Procedure.   However,    the ARB finds that reasonable
  grounds exist to believe that use of the Intended Acceleration Audi computer
  modification 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 Intended Acceleration Audi computer modification 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 ARB with reason to suspect that the Intended Acceleration Audi
    computer modification will affect the durability of the emission control
    system, Intended Acceleration 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 Regulations section 2222 et seq.

    This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
    use of this Intended Acceleration Audi computer modification 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
k;%]f´ČüENRrITS OF THE INTENDED ACCELERATION‘S AUDI COMPUTER MODIFICATION.

    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

    request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after the
    hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
