                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—269—7
                     Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                of the Vehicle Code


                                K & N ENGINEERING
                     FILTERCHARGER INJECTION PERFORMANCE KIT


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—45—5;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Filtercharger
Injection Performance Kit manufactured by K & N Engineering, 561 Iowa
Avenue, Riverside, CA     92507 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness
of the applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt
from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the vehicles
lTisted in Exhibit 1, which is attached hereto and incorporated herein.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions
for the Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit will not recommend tuning
the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by K & N
Engineering.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Filtercharger
Injection Performance Kit, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which
adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control system
shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit using any
identification other than that shown in this Exgécutive Order or marketing of
the Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit for an application other than
those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board. Exemption of the
Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit shall not be construed as exemption
to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an
individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that
the use of the Filtercharger Injection Performance Kit may have on any
warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturerf


    This Executive Order is granted based on an evaluation of emissions impact
    if emissions tests were conducted in accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75
    Federal Test Procedure. However, the Air Resources Board finds that
    reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Filtercharger Injection
    Performance Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when
    operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously
    prescribed test procedures.   Accordingly, the Air Resources Board reserves
    the right to conduct additional 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 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 Air Resources
    Board with reason to suspect that the Filtercharger Injection Performance
    Kit will affect the durability of the emission control, K & N Engineering
    shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of
    the vehicle emissions 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 Air Resources Board 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 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 K & N ENGINEERING‘S FILTERCHARGER INJECTION PERFORMANCE KIT.

    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 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 within ten days of receipt of the
    request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after hearing
    that grounds for revocation exist.

    Executed at El Monte, California, this   [Z’L day   of October, 1994.

K&N Filterchargers Injection Performance Kit #: 57—3006
Application: 1992—1993 Chevrolet S—10 Pickups V8—4.3 Vortec
Air—flow sensing device:          Speed Density

BASIC DESIGN CONCEPT
This K&N Filterchargere Injection Performance Kit (hereafter referred to as: FIPK) is designed to be less restrictive
than the OEM air filter system. Low restriction air filters allow the engine to have better throttle response as well as
more power throughout the RPM band. K&N has designed this FIPK to exactly replace the OEM factory air cleaner
case, with a precision engineered aluminum adapter and all the necessary mounting brackets, bolts, screws and nuts.
Additionally, it is important to note, if the 0.E.M. air cleaner case has emission control devices and/or hoses, that all
these parts will be installed as necessary to the new assembly.

Each FIPK has a specially designed filter with woven cotton fabric sandwiched between 2 layers of wire mesh screen.
The screen and fabric combination creates a grid—like effect which actually straightens out the incoming air as it
passes through the filter. In addition to the filter, this kit has a uniquely designed adapter with a built—in velocity stack.
This velocity stack is beneficial in further smoothing out the incoming air flow and allowing for a less restrictive entry
into the engine. (Air moving in a straight direction moves faster than tumbling air thus creating an increase in air flow).
See the figure below.

AIR CLEANER DESIGN EFFECTIVENESS
To design an effective performance air filter assembly, two factors must be considered: the air filtering element and
the air filter adapter. On fuel injected, computer controlled vehicles, there can be a substantial gain in performance by
using a less restrictive air filter assembly. Original equipment air filter assemblies tend to be more restrictive than the
performance enthusiast would like, therefore, by changing to the less restrictive K&N FIPK, the air flow potential of the
engine can be fully maximized without jeopardizing important emission standards. (see figures below)


EMISSIONS LEGAL
The FIPK is street legal for use on the emission controlled vehicles that it was originally designed to fit. These kits
replace the original air filter case and do not eliminate the emission controls. The high temperature label contains the
EO # assigned by C.A.R.B. that will allow a vehicle installed with the FIPK to pass the visual inspection at an
authorized Smog Inspection station.

INSTALLATION
see the figure above for stock parts locations
see the figure on the next page for finished kit locations
1)      Disconnect the vehicle‘s negative battery cable.
2)      Unclamp the Intake hose, and PCV hose from the airbox and slide out entire airbox.
3)     Remove the plastic intake tube that is attached to the fan shroud. with one clip.
4)      Install the new intake tube using the same clip that held the old one.
5)      Install the bracket to the end of filter. Clamp the filter, and PCV hose onto the new intake tube, position filter so the
       bracket will line up to the fender well. You will need to drill a 5/16" hole to secure the bracket.
6)      Position for best clearance and tighten all hardware.
7)     Re—connect battery cable. Double check to make sure everything is tight and properly positioned before starting vehicle.
8)     The C.A.R.B. exemption sticker must be placed in a visible area under the hood, so that an emissions inspector can see it
       when the vehicle is required to be tested for emissions. California requires testing every two years, other states may
       vary.


ROAD TESTING

Start the engine with the transmission in neutral or park, and the emergency brake on. Listen for any air leaks or odd noises. If

there are air leaks, make sure the hose connections are secure. If there are any odd noises, check for the cause and repair before

proceeding. The K&N Filtercharger®e Injection Performance Kit will function identically to the factory air filter with the exception of

being slightly louder than stock and much more responsive. If all preliminary checks are okay, then a road test is necessary. Listen

carefully for rattling or other odd noises and fix as necessary. If the road test is fine, you can enjoy driving as normal with the

added response and power. We suggest that the Filterchargero element be checked periodically for dirt. This is now very easy

due to the open element configuration. If the filter material is overly dirty, service it according to the instructions that are in the

Recharger service kit that was included with the FIPK. If you have any questions or problems, inquire at your nearest K&N dealer,

or direct to K&N Engineering at (909) 684—9762.
