                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—245—18

                                Relating to Exemptions under
                              Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                      BBK Performance
                                       Shorty Headers

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code (VC); and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Shorty Headers, manufactured
by BBK Performance, 27440 Bostik Court, Temecula, California 92590, has been found not
to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems, and
therefore, the Shorty Headers are exempt from the prohibitions in VC Section 27156 for
installation on the following General Motors vehicle applications listed in Exhibit A.

The headers are a shorty style header design, manufactured out of 14 gage mild steel or 16
gage stainless steel. The oxygen sensoris retained in the stock location at a collector. The
headers may include a connecting Y—pipe that is also manufactured out of 14 gage mild
steel or 16 gage stainless steel.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Shorty
Headers will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

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

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 procedures of Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222, et seq.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on a
2012 model year Chevrolet Camaro, equipped with a 6.2L engine and modified with the
Shorty Headers. Test results showed that emission levels, with the Shorty Headers
installed, met the applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold—Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test
Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycle. Examination of the OBD II system showed that the
Shorty Headers did not affect OBD II system operation. Results from emissions testing


conducted at Quantum Technologies, located at Lake Forest, California, are shown
below, in grams per mile, with deterioration factors (df) applied.
