This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for
the Street Runner Power Chips, Thermo Master Power Chips and Power Modules
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 Street Runner Power
Chips, Thermo Master Power Chips and Power Modules, 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 Street Runner Power Chips, Thermo Master Power Chips and
Power Modules using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of the Street Runner Power Chips, Thermo Master Power Chips
and Power Modules 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 Prom Chips 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 Street Runner Power Chips, Thermo Master Power Chips and Power Modules
may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.


HYPERTECH, INC.                                         EXECUTIVE ORDER D—260—5
PROM CHIPS                                              (Page 2 of 2)



This Executive Order is granted based on Cold—Start CVS—75 emissions data.
Test data showed that the Hypertech Prom Chips did not affect the emissions of
the vehicle.      However,   the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe
that use of the Hypertech programmer 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 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 Street Runner Power Chips,             Thermo
Master Power Chips and Power Modules 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Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are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 supercharger will affect the durability of the
emission control systems, Hypertech 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 A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF HYPERTECH, INC.‘S PROM CHIPS.

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 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 after hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte,    California,   this    é//    day of   cember 1996.
