components: open-element air filter, ·filter enclosure (as applicable), intake system
tubing, crankcase ventilation hose (as applicable), assorted brackets, .and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the DC Sports
Cold Air and Short Ram Intake Systems 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 DC Sports Co"ld Air and
Short Ram Intake System, 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 DC Sports Cold Air and Short Ram Intake System using any
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 DC Sports Cold Air and Short

concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.


                                             -2-

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the DC
Sports Cold Air and Short Ram Air Intake Systems may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on previous emission test results in the. modified
configuration using the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP US06), and an examination of the On-Board Diagnostic
II (OBD-11) system. A 2011 model-year Honda Civic 1.8 Liter (engine test group
BHNXV01.8HB9) was used for the evaluation. Results from emissions testing·
conducted at Automobile Club of Southern California, are shown below (in grams per
mile):                                                                       ·

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Cold Air and
Short Ram Air Intake Systems do not affect OBD II operation.

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. Further, if test results or other evidence provides the ARB
with reason to suspect that the DC Sports Cold Air and Short Ram Air Intake System
will affect the durability of emission control systems, DC Sports shall be required to
submit durability data to show that the durability .of vehicle emission control systems are
not, in fact, affected and/or that the add-on or modified parts demonstrate adequate
durability.
