                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the Vehicle Code

                                   POWERDYNE, INC.  ~
                        MODEL NUMBER BD—10 SUPERCHARGING SYSTEM

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 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 model number BD—10
supercharging system, manufactured by Powerdyne, Inc. of 104C East Ave., K—
4, Lancaster, California 93535, 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 1986—1993 model—year Ford Motor Co. vehicles equipped with 5.0
liter (302 CID) or 5.8 liter (351 CID) electronic fuel injected engines.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
this kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different
from those submitted by Powerdyne, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the supercharging
system, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performange 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 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 model number BD—10 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 model number BD~10
  supercharging 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 model number BD—10 supercharging system will affect the
 durability of the emission control system, Powerdyne, 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
 seq.

 THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
 APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF
 CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
 BENEFITS OF THE POWERDYNE, INC.‘S MODEL NUMBER BD—10 SUPERCHARGING SYSTEM.

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

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.                    '
