                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                       of the Vehicle Code


                          ADVANCED MOTORSPORTS SOLUTIONS
                                VR6 Supercharger 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 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 VR6 Supercharger System,
manufactured and marketed by Advanced Motorsports Solutions, 850 West 18th Street,
Unit A, Costa Mesa, California, 92627 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 1992 through 1999 Volkswagens equipped with the 2.8
liter engine.        '

The VR6 Supercharger System includes the following main parts and modifications: Vortech
V—1 S—Trim supercharger with a maximum boost of 8.5 psi., a 3.12" diameter supercharger
pulley, a new PROM chip that modifies timing and fuel tables during boost conditions, an open
element K&N style air cleaner that is mounted onto the intake side of the supercharger, a
check valve for the evaporative purge line, a small air cleaner to provide clean air to the
secondary air injection system, and the PCV hose is routed to the intake side of the
supercharger. The manufacturer recommends 92 octane fuel.

This Executive Order is valid. provided the instalilation instructions for the VR6 Supercharger
System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any VR6 Supercharger System advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate
purchaser.                                                                           '

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the VR6 Supercharger System, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

VR6 Supercharger System                     .                            (Page 2 of 3)




Marketing of the VR6 Supercharger System using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the VR6 Supercharger 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 VR6 Supercharger System shall not be construed as exemption to se'll,,o_ffer
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 VR6
Supercharger System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that
the VR6 Supercharger System did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during the Cold Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Testing was conducted on a 1998 Volkswagen GTH,
equipped with a 2.8 liter engine, certified to the Tier 1 emission standard. Emission levels of
the modified vehicle met the applicable emission standards. The following test results are in
grams per mile with the deterioration factors applied:

                   NMHC CO         NOx
Standard           0.25 3.4        0.4
Device w/dfs       0.12 1.7        0.1

This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) testing conducted on
the same vehicle. Test data showed that the VR6 Supercharger System 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 Advanced
Motorsports Solutions‘ VR6 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 supercharger adversely affects
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 supercharger will affect the
durability of the emission control systems, Advanced Motorsports Solutions 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.
