HIPERFLOW INDUCTION SYSTEM                                        (Page 2 of 3)

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Hiperflow Induction
system will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by
Automotive Systems Group, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Hiperflow 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 Hiperflow Induction system using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Hiperflow 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 Hiperflow Induction system shall not be construed as
exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of the Hiperflow
Induction system may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions tests 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 Hiperflow 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 Hiperflow 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effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are validated.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 Hiperflow 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.
