                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—269—38

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the California Vehicle Code

                                  K&N Engineering
       Fuel Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems

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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Fuel Injection
Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems, produced and marketed by
K&N Engineering of 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 the attached Exhibit A.

The Fuel Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems include
the following main components: open—element reusable air filter, intake system tubing,
assorted brackets, and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Fuel
Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems 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 Fuel Injection Performance
Kit, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems, 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 Fuel Injection Performance Kit, 77—Series, or
Typhoon Intake System 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 Fuel Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake
Systems using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or
marketing of the Fuel Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake
Systems 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 Fuel
Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems may have on any
warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (USO6), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
(OBD II) systems. A 2010 BMW Mini with a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine
(ABMXVO1.6LER, LEV—II ULEV) and 2008 Pontiac Solstice with a 2.0 liter turbocharged
engine (8GMXV02.0020, LEV—II LEV) were used for the evaluation of the Fuel Injection
Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems. Results from emissions
testing conducted at The Automobile Club of Southern California, are shown below (in
grams per mile):

2010 BMW Mini 1.6 liter turbocharged

       USO6                         NMHC + NOx       CO
                Emission Level      0.052            2.301
                      STD           0.14             8.0

2008 Pontiac Solstice 2.0 liter turbocharged

       USO6                         NMHC + NOx       cCO
                Emission Level      0.106            0.731
                      STD           0.14             8.0

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Fuel Injection
Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems do not affect OBD II
operation. Therefore, based on the test results, the staff concludes that the Fuel
Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and Typhoon Intake Systems meet the criteria for
exempting general criteria parts.

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. Further, if test results or other evidence provides the
ARB with reason to suspect that the Fuel Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, and
Typhoon Intake Systems 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.

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 THE K&N
ENGINEERING FUEL INJECTION PERFORMANCE KITS, 77 SERIES, AND
TYPHOON INTAKE SYSTEMS.

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
