                                        JACKSON SUPERCHARGER KIT

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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the 6 PSI. Jackson Supercharger Kit, manufactured
and marketed by Jackson Racing, 7281 Westminster Avenue, Westminster, California, 92683 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 all 1988—99 Honda vehicles equipped with either the 4 or 6
cylinder engine.

The Jackson Supercharger Kit includes the following main components: Eaton supercharger, fuel pressure
regulator, and an intake manifold. The following are the applicable pulley sizes:

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the supercharger will not recommend
tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the device manufacturer which recommends that
ignition timing be retarded up to 10 degrees BTDC and that 92 octane fuel be used.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any 6 PSI. Supercharger Kit advertised, offered for sale, or sold with or
installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the supercharger using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing
of the supercharger 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 supercharger 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 the supercharger may have on any
warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

JACKSON RACING                                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—344—5
JACKSON SUPERCHARGER KIT                                         (Page 2 of 2)

This Executive Order is granted based on the following submitted emissions test data on a 1998 Honda Civic
certified to a Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standard:

                      NMOG      CO       NOx           HCHO
Standards             0.075     3.4      0.2           0.015
device w/ dfs         0.071     1.5      0.1           0.002

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the supercharger installed on the vehicle met the vehicle‘s
applicable emission standard during Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based
on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same 1998 LEV Civic. Test data showed that the
supercharger kit when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Jackson Supercharger Kit 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 Jackson Supercharger Kit 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 Jackson Supercharger Kit
will affect the durability of the emission control system, Jackson Racing shall be required to submit durabilitydata
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.


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 the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten
days of receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.

Executive Order D—344—3, dated April 1998, is superseded and of no further force and effect.

Executed at El Monte, California, this £7          day of January 1999.
