                                      EXECUTIVE ORDER D—271—10
                                Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                             of the Vehicle Code

                                           KENNE BELL, INC.
                                       TS SERIES SUPERCHARGER

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—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the TS Series Supercharger, manufactured and
marketed by Kenne Bell, Inc., 10743 Bell Court, Rancho Cucamonga, California, 91730 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 following Chrysler and Ford vehicles listed in
Exhibit A, which is attached hereto and incorporated herein.

The TS Series Supercharger includes the following main components: A Whipple twin screw type
supercharger, intake manifold, fuel management booster, and a new computer chip.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the supercharger will not
recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Kenne Bell, Inc. TS Series Supercharger advertised, offered for
sale, or sold with or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate

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

Marketing of the supercharger using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or
marketing of the supercharger 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 supercharger
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 the use of the supercharger may have
on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure emissions data.
However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Kenne Bell supercharger
may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of
the previously prescribed test procedures. Accordingly, the ARB 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 supercharger 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 ARB with reason to suspect that the
supercharger will affect the durability of the emission control systems, Kenne Bell shall be required to
submit durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact,
affected and/or that the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

  KENNE BELL, INC.                                                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—271—10
_ TS SERIES SUPERCHARGER                                               (Page 2 of 2)

In addition to the foregoing, 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.

This Executive Order is granted based on the following submitted emissions test data on a 1999 Ford
Expedition and Jeep Grand Cherokee certified to a low emission vehicle standard. The vehicle in the
modified configuration met the applicable emission standards. Testing consisted of one Cold Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedures in the modified configuration. The following test results are in grams per mile with
deterioration factors applied:

This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same
vehicles. Test data showed that the supercharger when installed on the vehicles did not affect the vehicle‘s
ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.


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 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.      L
