IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation.of the Twisted Wedge
Cylinder Heads, manufactured and marketed by Trick Flow Specialties, 1248
Southeast Avenue,    Tallmadge,   Ohio 44278 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 installation on 1996 and older Ford vehicles powered by a 289,         302,
or 351 CID engine.

Trick Flow Specialties‘ Twisted Wedge Cylinder Heads are manufactured out of
aluminum and are equipped with a 2.02" diameter intake valve, 1.6" diameter

the supercharger will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by the vehicle manufacturer.

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

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

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED

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
