                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—276—12

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                               Borla Performance Industries
                               T304 Stainless Steel Header

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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the T304 Stainless Steel
Header, produced and marketed by Borla Performance Industries of 5901 Edison Drive,
Oxnard, CA 93033, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of
Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the vehicles listed in the attached Exhibit A.

The T304 Stainless Steel Header is a tubular exhaust manifold composed of stainless
steel.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the T304
Stainless Steel Header will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different
from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the T304 Stainless Steel
Header, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any T304 Stainless Steel Header advertised,
offered for sale, sold with,or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the T304 Stainless Steel Header using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the T304 Stainless Stee!l Header for an _
application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless
prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
T304 Stainless Steel Header units may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental


                                             2.


Federal Test Procedure (USO6), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic !I
(OBD I!) system. A 2003 Chrysler PT Cruiser with a 2.4 liter engine (3CRXVO2.4VD0,
LEV, PC) was used for the evaluation of the T304 Stainless Stee! Header. Results from
emissions testing conducted at Quantum Technologies, are shown below (in grams per
mile):

FTP                    50k      NMOG          CO        NOx        HCHO
                 Emission Level 0.048        0.508      0.106       0.001
                 (w. DF applied)
                       STD         0.075     3.4         0.2       0.015

                      100k       NMOG         CO        NOx        HCHO
                 Emission Level 0.055        0.622      0.127       0.002
                 (w. DF applied)
                       STD       0.090       4.2         0.3        0.018


USO6                  NMHC + NOx           CO
                Meas.    0.075             2.3
                STD      0.14              8.0

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed T304 Stainless Steel
Header does not affect OBD I! operation.                                              |

If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the T304 Stainless Steel
Header will affect the durability of emission control systems, Borla Performance
Industries shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of vehicle
emission control systems are not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified:
part demonstrates adequate durability.

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 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 BORLA
PERFORMANCE INDUSTRIES®‘ T304 STAINLESS STEEL HEADER.

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
