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 DRM 400 Series
Engine Package, 375 HP manufactured by Doug Rippie Motorsports of 12832
Highway 55, Plymouth, Minnesota 55441 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 1993 and 1994 Camaros and Firebirds, and 1992 to 1994 Corvettes
equipped with a 5.7L LT—1 gasoline engine.

Doug Rippie Motorsports‘ DRM 400 Series Engine Package, 375 HP includes a
new camshaft, machined factory cylinder heads & intake runners, stainless
steel exhaust headers, and a modified throttle body.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation of the DRM 400
Series Engine Package, 375 HP, is conducted by Doug Rippie Motorsports and
no changes are made to the stock tune—up specifications.
Changes made to the design or operating conditions of this engine package,
as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
ofda vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
Order.                                       —   n1  s

Marketing of this engine package using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the engine package 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 engine package 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 DRM 400 Series Engine Package, 375 HP 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 DRM 400 Series Engine
Package, 375 HP 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 susgéct that the DRM 400 Serjes Engine Package, 375 HP will affect the _
durability of the emission control system, Doug Rippie Motorsports 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.

 BENEFITS OF DOUG RIPPIE MOTORSPORTS‘ ENGINE PACKAGE.
