                   Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section

                    IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:     That the installation of the Nitrous Oxide
                    Injection kits manufactured by Nitrous Oxide Systems,                    Inc.      have been found
                    not to reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle polliution control
                    devices and,   therefore,   are exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of
                    the Vehicle Code for the following vehicles:

                   All Nitrous Oxide Injection kits must use a wide open throttle relay module
                   and a #42 flare jet.  Only the 5170—II & 5115—II Nitrous Oxide Injection
                   kits can use either the #42 or #67 flare jet,            and 5172,             5174,   & 5176 use #67
                   flare jet.                              '

                   This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
                   the Nitrous Oxide Injection kits will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
                   specifications different from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

                   Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as
                   exempted by the ARB, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
                   pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

                   Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in
                   this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other
                   than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
                   approval is obtained from the ARB.

                   This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
                   use of this device 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

NITROUS OXIDE SYSTEMS,              INC.                                  .    EXECUTIVE ORDER D—266—2
                                                                               (Page 2 of 3)



Test Procedure.  However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to
believe that use of the Nitrous Oxide Injection kits 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 Nitrous
Oxide Injection kits adversely affect 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 Nitrous Oxide Injection kits will affect the durability
of the emission control system, Nitrous Oxide Systems, Inc. shall be
required to submit durability data to show thaf ithe 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 NITROUS OXIDE SYSTEMS, INC.‘ NITROUS OXIDE INJECTION KIT #5115,
#5115—II, #5172, #5174, & #5176.

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.

Section 17500 of the Business and Professions Code makes untrue or
misleading advertising unlawful, and Section 17534 makes violation
punishable as a misdemeanor.

Section 43644 of the Health and Safety Code provides as follows:

     "43644,     (a)       No person shall install, sell, offer for sale, or
     advertise,     or,    except in an application to the state board for
     certification of a device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle
     pollution control device for use on any used motor vehicle unless that
     device has been certified by the state board.  No person shall sell,
     offer for sale, advertise, or represent any motor vehicle pollution
     control device as a certified device which,                                 in fact,           is not a certified
     device.    Any violation of this subdivision is a misdemeanor."
