                                      FILTERCHARGER INJECTION PERFORMANCE KIT



             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 Section 39515 and
             Section 39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;


             IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Filtercharger
             Injection Performance Kit,          manufactured and marketed by K&N Engineering,          Inc.,
             561 Iowa Avenue,       Riverside,    California   92502 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 the vehicles listed in Exhibit A.


             The Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit includes the following main
             components:   K&N open—element reusable air filter,               intake system tubing,
             assorted brackets,       and hardware.


             This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for
             the Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit 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 Filtercharger
             Injection Performance Kit system,          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 Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit using any
             identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of
             the Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit 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 Filtercharger
             Injection Performance Kit 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 Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit may have on any warranty either
            expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


                                                                   ‘s Seam~




«&N ENGINEERING                                           EXECUTIVE ORDER D—269—12
FILTERCHARGER INJECTION PERFORMANCE KIT                    (Page 2 of 2)

This Executive Order is granted based on examination of the On—Board
Diagnostic II    (OBD—II)    system of the vehicle in the modified confiqguration,
and an engineering evaluation of the emissions impact of the device if
measured using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.  However, the ARB
finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the K&N Engineering
Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit may adversely affect emissions of
motor vehicles when operating under conditid;s outside the parameters of the
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.  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 K&N Engineering Filtercharger Injection
Performance Kit 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 Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit will affect the durability of the
emission control system,       K&N Engineering 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 K&N ENGINEERING‘S FILTERCHARGER INJECTION PERFORMANCE KIT.


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,   thisday of March 1998.
