                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—245—21

                                  Relating to Exemptions under
                               Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                        BBK Performance
                                         Throttle Bodies

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 Throttle Bodies, 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 Throttle Bodies are exempt from the prohibitions in VC Section 27156 for installation on
the following Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Fiat vehicle applications listed in Exhibit A.

The BBK Throttle Body is new throttle body that has been designed to OEM specifications
with a slightly larger diameter bore. A new throttle plate is included to match up with the
new diameter bore. Installation is in the stock location, with no other modifications needed
for proper installation.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Throttle Bodies
will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Throttle Bodies, 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 exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data, from the SEMA Garage,
Diamond Bar, California, on a 2015 model year Jeep 3.6L Wrangler certified to the
LEV II ULEV emission standards, modified with the BBK 76 mm Throttle Body, and tested
using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycle.

     Standards               0.070     21     0.040 0.011                0.14          8.0

    (2 test average)

Test results showed that the BBK 76 mm Throttle Body, when installed on the vehicle, did
not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards during the FTP
and SFTP. This Executive Order is also based on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11)
testing conducted on the same test vehicle. The BBK 76 mm Throttle Body when installed
on the test vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.
Similar results would be expected from the other kits listed.

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.


Marketing of the Throttle Bodies using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Throttle Bodies for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the
Air Resources Board.

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

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a 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 is made after the
hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this       /H_M      day of April 2017.
