                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD                                    ;

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—269—22

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the California Vehicle Code

                                      K&N Engineering
                           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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Filtercharger Injection
Performance Kit, produced and marketed by K&N Engineering, 1455 Citrus Ave.,
Riverside, California 92507, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control systems 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:
open—element reusable air filter, heat shields (as applicable), intake system tubing,
crankcase ventilation hose (as applicable, which may be silicone, and a color other than
black), assorted brackets, and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the K&N >
Engineering 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 K&N Engineering
Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which
adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate
this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any K&N Engineering Filtercharger Injection
Performance Kit advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor
vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the K&N Engineering Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the K&N
Engineering 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.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the K&N
Engineering Filtercharger Injection Performance Kits may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic !I
(OBD—I1) system of a 2002 Lexus 1S300 in the modified configuration, and an
engineering evaluation of the emissions impact of the device if measured using the
Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Furthermore, this Executive Order is
granted based on emission test results in the modified configuration using the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6). Test data and engineering
evaluation showed that the Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit will have no adverse
impact on the vehicle‘s emissions or the OBD—Il system monitoring. Results from
emissions testing conducted at Quantum Technologies are shown below (in grams per

    Model—Year      Model       Standard      Test Group      NMHC+NOx      CO
       2002       Lexus 18300   LEV, PC     2TYXVO3.0FFF        0.101      6.932
                                                   Standard      0.14       8.0

If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Filtercharger Injection
Performance Kit will affect the durability of emission control systems, K&N Engineering
shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of vehicle emission
control systems are not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
demonstrates adequate durability.

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..


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     7171      day of January, 2003.
