  Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the K & N
  Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit as exempt by the ARB, which
  adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pcliution control system
  shall invalidate this Executive Order.

 Marketing of this K & N Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit using any

     K & N ENGINEERING, INC.                                            . ‘EXECUTIVE ORDER D—269—3
     K & N FILTERCHARGER INJECTION PERFORMANCE KIT                         (Page 2 of 3)

     This Executive Order is granted based on a determination that the device
     would not show an adverse effect im emissions if tested 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 Filtercharger Injection
_ "—@gerformagce Kit 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 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 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     Test Procedure)}, this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of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 K & N
     Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit will affect the durability of the
     emission control system, K & N Engineering, Inc. shall be required to submit
     durability data to show that the durability of the vericle 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 any opinion as to the effect the
     use of this K & N Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit may have on any
     warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle szanufacturer.


    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 sivertising or other
    oral or written communication.

                               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 deternmination after the
                               hearing that grounds for revocation exisy.

                              Executive Order D—269 is of no further force and effect.
