                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—370—8

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                                         DC Sports
                                DC Sports Exhaust Header

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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the DC Sports Exhaust
Header, produced and marketed by DC Sports of 286 Winfield Circle, Corona, California
92880, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code for the Honda/Acura vehicles listed in the attached Exhibit A.

The DC Sports Exhaust Header consists of a tubular exhaust manifold available in
stainless steel or ceramic coated mild steel. The headers are supplied with oxygen
sensor harness extensions in cases where the exhaust runners have been lengthened
relative to stock dimensions, requiring relocation of the oxygen sensor further
downstream in the exhaust system at the header collector.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the DC Sports
Exhaust Header will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications dlfierent from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.                                              ragece

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any DC Sports Exhaust Header advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the DC Sports Exhaust Header using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the DC Sports Exhaust Header for an
application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless
prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the DC
Sports Exhaust Header may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (USO6), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
(OBD i1) system. A 2002 Acura RSX Type S with a 2.0 liter engine (2HNXVO2.0EKC,
LEV—II, PC) was used for the evaluation of the DC Sports Exhaust Header. Results
from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing Laboratories, of Mesa, Arizona,
are shown below (in grams per mile):

FTP                    50k       NMOG         CO        NOx        HCHO
                 Emission Level 0.051         0.803     0.039       0.001
                 (w. DF applied)

                      100k          NMOG          CO    NOx        HCHO
                 Emission Level     0.058     0.937     0.047      0.001
                 (w. DF applied)
                       STD       0.090        4.2       0.07        0.018

USO6                    NMHC + NOx          CO
                Meas.        0.09           3.2
                STD          0.14           8.0

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the DC Sports
Exhaust Header does not affect OBD !! operation.

If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the DC Sports Exhaust
Header 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 part demonstrates
adequate durability.

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.



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

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 is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   _4# rd        day of June, 2002.
