                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—304—2
                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                         _     of the Vehicle Code,

                  APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES & RESEARCH,     INC.‘S
                                  PIT BULL

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

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and
39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—5;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:     That the installation of the Pit Bull, model
HP137 manufactured by Applied Technologies & Research, Inc. of 500—9
Giuseppe Ct, Roseville, California 95678, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution control devices and,
therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for 1986 & 1987 General Motors‘ vehiclés equipped with a 231 CID V6
turbocharged engine.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
the Pit Bull will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by the manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as
exempted by the ARB, that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
use of this device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted 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 Pit Bull 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 Pit Bull 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


APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES & RESEARCH,   INC.            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—304—2
                                                   (Page 2 of 2)


to suspect that the Pit Bull will affect the durability of the emission
control system, Applied Technologies & Research, 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 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 APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES & RESEARCH, INC.*‘S PIT BULL.

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.

Section 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.

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

Executed at El Monte, California, this    fl? day     mf September 1993.
