                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D-269-43

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the California Vehicle Code

                                  K&N Engineering, Inc.
                                 Typhoon Intake Systems

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code (VC); 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 installation of the Typhoon Intake Systems,
produced and marketed by K&N Engineering, Inc. 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 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 installation instructions for the 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 Typhoon Intake Systems, as
exempt by the ARB, 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 Typhoon Intake Systems 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 Typhoon Intake Systems using any identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of the Typhoon Intake Systems 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 the
Typhoon Intake Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.


                                          ' -2-



This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and an examination of the
On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system. A 2012 Volkswagen Eos equipped with a 2.0
liter turbocharged engine (CVWXV02.03SA, LEV-II SULEV) was used for the evaluation
of the Typhoon Intake Systems. Results from emissions testing conducted at the
Automobile Club of Southern California's Automotive Research Center in
Diamond Bar, CA, are shown below (in grams per mile):

2012 Volkswagen Eos 2.0 liter turbocharged


      FTP            150,000 mi.      NMOG            co            NOx          HCHO
                 Emission Level
                                       0.004          0.2           0.02         0.000
                   (OF applied)
                            STD        0.010           1.0          0.02         0.010


Emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable   .
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Typhoon Intake
Systems do not affect OBD II operation. Therefore, based on the test results, the staff
concludes that the Typhoon Intake Systems meet the criteria.for exempting general
criteria parts.

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 Typhoon Intake Systems will affect the durability of emission control
systems, K&N Engineering, Inc. 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, INC. 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.
