                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—320
                    Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                               of the Vehicle Code

                               EXHAUST AID COMPANY
                                EXHAUST AID DEVICE

whErBaAs,   Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13 California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(e), authorizes the California Air
Resources Board (ARB) and its Executive Officer to exempt add—onand
modified parts from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.

WHEREAS, Superchips International, Inc. has applied to the ARB for exemption
from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the EXHAUST AID

wWHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health
and Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Division by
Health and Safety Code Sectxon 39516 and Executive Order G—45—5, the ARB

     1.     The EXHAUST AID is an add—on device that is attached to the
            exhaust system in a motor vehicle.

            The exhaust system is part of the required motor vehicle pollution
            control system.                                        '

            The EXHAUST AID is intended for use with a required pollution
            control system.

            The EXHAUST AID by being installed on the exhaust system alters
            the original design of a motor vehicle pollution control system.

            The EXHAUST AID is a device subject to the prohibitions of Vehicle
            Code Section 27156 and an add—on part as defined by 13 CCR Section

            The EXHAUST AID does not reduce the effectiveness of any required
            motor vehicle pollution control device.

            The ARB, in the exercise of technical judgement, is aware of no
            basis on which the EXHAUST AID will provide either a decrease in
            emission or an increase in fuel economy.

            It has not been determined what effect use of the EXHAUST AID may
            have on any warranty, either expressed or implied, by the
            manufacturer of a motor vehicle on which the device is installed.

EXHAUST AID COMPANY                ’                    EXECUTIVE ORDER D—320
EXHAUST AID                                             (Page 2 of 3)

     9.     The EXHAUST AID is not a certified motor vehicle pollution control
          . device pursuant to Health and Safety Code Section 43644.

     10. The ARB by granting an exemption to Exhaust Aid Company for the
         EXHAUST AID does not recommend or endorse in any way the EXHAUST
         AID for emissions reduction, fuel economy, or any other purpose.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the EXHAUST AID is exempt from the prohibitions
of Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on 1993 and earlier model—
year diesel fueled vehicles subject to the following conditions:

    1.    _ This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or
           mechanism advertised, offered for sale or sold with, or installed
           on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
           ultimate purchaser.

           No changes are permitted to the device as described in the
           application for exemption.  Any changes to the device, applicable
           model year, or other factors addressed in this order must be
           evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to marketing in

           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 the Executive Order shall
           be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.
           Exemption of this product shall not be construed as an exemption
           to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the product
           as an individual device.

           Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its
           content by the Exhaust Aid Company, its principals, agents,
           employees,    distributors,   dealers,   or other representatives must
           include the disclaimer that the Executive Order or the exemption
           it provides is not an endorsement or approval of any fuel economy
           or emissions reduction claims for the EXHAUST AID and is only a
           finding that —the device is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle
           Code Section 27156.

          Board" may be made with respect to the action taken herein in any
