                                   State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D-269-53

                     Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                of the California Vehicle Code

                                   K&N Engineering
                                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 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 BMW Mini vehicles listed in the att?ched
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 the 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 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 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 Air Resources Board .

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.

This Executive Order is granted based on prior emission testing performed in for the
issuance of D-269-38. Testing was performed in the modified 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 2010
BMW Mini with a 1.6 liter turbocharged engine (ABMXV01 .6 LER, LEV-II ULEV) was
used for the evaluation . Therefore, based on the test results , the staff concludes that
the 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 resu lts 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 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. ·


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
the proposed revocation . If a hearing is requested, it shall be held with in 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, Californ ia , this __2_0_ _ day of January 2016.
