                            Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                         of the Vehicle Code

                                    TS SERIES SUPERCHARGER

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code;

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. Vehicles certified to an ultra low emission vehicle (ULEV) standard are

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 purchaser.

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 seil, 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

                                                                                                oc__      _—   ___o=___

KENNE BELL, INC.                                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—271—11
TS SERIES SUPERCHARGER                                           (Page 2 of 2)

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.

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

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.

Executive Order D—271—10, dated June 1999, is superseded and of no further force and effect.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   2/     day of December 1999.
