                                                   (Page 2 of 3)

 Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the supercharging
 system, 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 this supercharging system using any identification other than
 that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of this supercharging
 system 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 supercharging system 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 this supercharging system may have on any warranty either expressed
 or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

  This Executive Order is gfanted based on results from emissions tests
— conducted in accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
  However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of
  the TS—1000 series supercharger system 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 TS—1000 series
 supercharger system adversely affect 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effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are validated.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 TS—1000 series supercharger system will affect the
durability of the emission control system, Kenne Bell, Inc. 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 Reqgulations,   Section 2222,   et

     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.

     Section 17500 of the Business and Professions Code makes untrue or
     misleading advertising unlawful, and Section 17534 makes violation
     punishable as a misdemeanor.

     Ssection 43644 of the Health and Safety Code provides as follows:

          "43644,     (a)   No person shall install,    sell,   offer for sale,     or
          advertise, or, except in an application to the state board for
          certification of a device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle
          pollution control device for use on any used motor vehicle unless that
          device has been certified by the state board.  No person shall sell,
          offer for sale, advertise, or represent any motor vehicle pollution
          control device as a certified device which, in fact, is not a certified |
          device.  Any violation of this subdivision is a misdemeanor."

     Any apparent violation of the conditions of this Executive Order may result
     in its rescission or submission to the Attorney General of California for
     such action as he deems advisable.                 i

     Executive Order D—271—4 is hereby superseded and of no further force or

     The Bureau of Automotive Repair will be notified by copy of this order.

     Executed at El Monte,   California,   this    é        of January,     1995.
