                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D-369-13

                              Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                 Trick Flow Specialties (aka Summit Racing Equipment)
                   170cc Small Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder Heads

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-02-003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the 170cc Small Block
Chevrolet Street Cylinder Heads, manufactured by Trick Flow Specialties (aka Summit
Racing Equipment) of 1200 Southeast Ave., Tallmadge, OH 44278, has been found not
to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems, and
therefore, the 170cc Small Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder Heads are exempt from the
prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installa1:ion on the vehicles listed in
Attachment A.

This Executive Order is based on previously submitted emissions test data conducted
by Trick Flow Specialties on a 1995 Chevrolet C1500 truck with a 5.7L engine. Test
results showed that exhaust emissions with Twisted Wedge Cylinder Heads installed on
the vehicle met the vehicle's applicable emission standard during a Cold-Start CVS-75
Federal Test Procedure. The Summit Racing Equipment 170cc Small Block Chevrolet
Street Cylinder Heads are similar in design as the Twisted Wedge Cylinder Heads
except that the combustion chamber volume is 62cc for the 170cc Street Cylinder
Heads and 63cc for the Twisted Wedge Cylinder Heads.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the 170cc
Small Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder Heads will affect the durability of the emission
control system, Summit Racing Equipment shall be required to submit durability data to
show that the durability of the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected
andlor that the add-on or modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the 170cc Small
Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder Heads do not recommend tuning the vehicles to
specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the 170cc Small Block Chevrolet
Street Cylinder Heads, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect
the performance of the vehicles' emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive
Order.


Marketing of the 170cc Small Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder Heads using identification
other than that shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed
in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board. Exemption of the 170cc Small Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder
Heads shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any
component of the system as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any 170cc Small Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder
Heads advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
170cc Small Block Chevrolet Street Cylinder Heads may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

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
comrrr unication.

In addition to the foregoing, the Air Resources Board 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
California Code of Regulations, Title 13, 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 ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI-POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF SUMMIT RACING
EQUIPMENT'S 170cc SMALL BLOCK CHEVROLET STREET CYLINDER HEADS.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
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 Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     31      day of August 2009.
