                            Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156 —
                                         of the Vehicle Code

                                        KENNE BELL, INC.
                                   TS SERIES SUPERCHARGER

Pursuant to the authority vested |nthe Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuantto the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

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 Chrysler and Ford vehicles listed in Exhibit A, which is attached hereto and
incorporated herein. 2001 through 2003 model—year Chrysler trucks that have been certified
to a ULEV emission standard and/or the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) —
emission standards are excluded.

The TS Series Supercharger includes the following main componemrits: A twin screw type
supercharger and an intake manifold. Additional components, as listed in Exhibit A, include an
ECU chip or an optimizer, an auxiliary fuel injector, and/or a fuel management booster.

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

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

Changes made to the design or operafing conditions of the supercharger, as exempt by the Air
Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollutlon 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 previously submitted emissions test data generated on
a 1999 model—year 5.4L Ford Expedition and 4.7L Jeep Grand Cherokee, certified to the Low
Emission Vehicle standards. The vehicles 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
                      5.4L Expedition       .                4.7L Grand Cherokee

Standard         0.195 5.0     0.6    0.022              0.100   4.4   0.4     0.018

This Executive Order is also based on an On Board Diagnostic II (OBD It) 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 I! monitoring.

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 theCold—Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescindedas 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.            ‘           —

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.


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 is made after the hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.
