    This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Power Boost induction
    system will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the original
    equipment manufacturer.

    Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Power Boost induction system, as exempt by the
    Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall
    invalidate this executive order.

     Marketing of the Power Boost induction system using any identification other than that shown in this
     Executive Order or marketing of the Power Boost induction system 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 Power Boost induction system shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer
     .or sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

 This Executive Order is granted based on an evaluation if emissions tests were conducted in accordance
 with Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the Air Resources Board finds that reasonable
 grounds exist to believe that use of the Power Boost induction system may adversely affect emissions of
 motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test
 procedures. Accordingly, the Air Resources Board reserves the right to conduct additional emission tests,
 in the future, as such tests are developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle
 phases. If such test results demonstrate that the Power Boost induction system adversely affects emissions
 during off—cycle conditions (defined as those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start
 CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test
 results are validated. Further, if such test results or other evidence provides the Air Resources Board with
 reason to suspect that the Power Boost induction system will affect the durability of the emission control,
 Automotive Systems Group, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of
 the vehicle emissions control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
 demonstrates adequate durability.

 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 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 communication.

 Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The order may be
 revoked only after 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 for revocation exist.

 Executed at El Monte, California, this 3/         day of October, 1996.
