                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—369—17

                              Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                 Trick Flow Specialities
                            Phenolic Throttle Body Spacer 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 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 phenolic throttle body
spacer kit, manufactured by Trick Flow Specialties of 285 West Ave., Tallmadge, OH
44278, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control systems, and therefore, the throttle body spacer kits are exempt from
the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the vehicles
listed in Attachment A.

This Executive Order is based on On—Board Diagnostic !1 System tests conducted by
Trick Flow Specialties with throttle body spacer kits installed on a 2005 5.3L Chevrolet
C1500 Silverado and a 2003 5.4L Ford F—150. Test results showed that the throttle
body spacer does not have any adverse impact on the vehicles‘ OBD i1 System.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the throttle
body spacer kit will affect the durability of the emission control system, Trick Flow
Specialties 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 parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the throttle body
spacer kits 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 throttle body spacer kits, 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 throttle body spacer kits 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 throttle body spacer kits shall not be construed as exemption to seil,
offer for sale, or advertise any component of the system as an individual device.


This Executive Order shall not apply to any throttle body spacer kits advertised, offered
for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to
an uitimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
throttle body spacer kits 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

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.


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     2&       day of October 2010.
