                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D-269-49

                     Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                of the California Vehicle Code

                                   K&N Engineering
 Fuel Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, Blackhawk, 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, Blackhawk, and Typhoon Intake Systems , produced and
marketed by K&N Engineering of 1455 Citrus Avenue, 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 GM vehicles listed in the attached Exhibit A.

The Fuel Injection Performance. Kits, 77 Series, Blackhawk, 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, Blackhawk, and Typh oon 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, Blackhawk, 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,
Blackhawk, or Typhoon Intake System advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed
on a new motor vehicle prior to or co ncurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the Fuel Injection Performance Kits , 77 Series, Blackhawk, and Typh oon
Intake Systems using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or
marketing of the Fuel Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, Blackhawk, 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 .


                                             -2-



This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Fuel
Injection Performance Kits, 77 Series, Blackhawk, 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 mod ified
configuration using the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (US06), and an examination of the On-Board Diagnostic II
(OBD II ) systems. A 2014 Chevy Camara equipped with a 3.6 liter engine
(EGMXJ03.6165 , LEV-II LEV) was used for the evaluation of the Fuel Injection
Performance Kits, 77 Series , Blackhawk, and Typhoon Intake Systems. Results from
emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc., are
shown below (in grams per mile):

       US06                     NMHC + NOx            CO
                 Emission Level 0.0415                0.238
                      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 , Blackhawk, 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, Blackhawk, and Typhoon Intake Systems meet
the criteria for exempting general criteria parts.

T he 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,
Blackhawk, 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,
ACCREDI TATION , 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, BLACKHAWK,
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.

Vio lation 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
