                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—392—12              .
                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code

                      ADVANCED ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.
                     COLD AIR SYSTEM & SHORT RAM SYSTEM


Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) 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—45—9;

T IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Cold Air System (CAS) and
Short Ram System (SRS) intake air kits, manufactured by Advanced Engine
Management, Inc. of 2205 126th Street, Unit A, Hawthorne, California 90250, has been
found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system,
and therefore, the CAS and SRS intake air kits are exempt from the prohibitions of
Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the following vehicles: —

CASP/N      SRSP/N       Vehicle MY      Vehicle Model                   Engine

21—403      22—403      2001             Acura Integra (non—VTEC)        1.8 L B18B1
21—404      22—404      2001             Acura Integra GSR               1.8 LVTEC B18C1
21—412        ———       2001             Acura Integra Type—R            1.8 LVTEC B18C5

The intake air kits include an open—element air filter, aluminum inlet tube, and assorted
mounting brackets and hoses, including the positive crankcease ventilation breather
hose.

The exemption is based on examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system
of a Honda Accord with Advanced Engine Management, Inc.‘s CAS intake air kit and
engineering evaluation of the emission impact of the CAS on the vehicle. Based on
comparison of the design and operating principles of the intake air kits, it is concluded _
that they will not affect the operation of the vehicles‘ OBD 11 systems and will not
adversely affect their exhaust emissions when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure (FTP).

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the intake
air kits may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under _
conditions outside the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 FTP. Accordingly, the ARB
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 intake air kits adversely affect emissions during off—
cycle conditions (defined as those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the
Cold—Start CVS—75 FTP), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the
date the test results are validated. Further, if such test results or other evidence


ADVANCED ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.                      Cl    EXECUTIVE ORDER D—392—12
COLD AIR SYSTEM/SHORT RAM SYSTEM                            (Page 2 of 3)


provides the ARB with reasons to suspect that the intake air kits will affect the durability
of the emission control system, Advanced Engine Management, Inc. 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 part demonstrates adequate
durability.                                                                                >

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the intake air kits
do not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design oroperating conditions of the intake air kits, as exempt by
the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicles‘ poIIutloncontrol
system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the intake air 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 ARB.

Exemption of the intake air kits shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for
sale, or advertise any component of the system as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any intake air kit advertised, offered for sale,
sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
intake air 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
communication. .

In addition to the foregoing, 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 California Code of
Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF ADVANCED
ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.‘S COLD AIR SYSTEM OR SHORT RAM SYSTEM.

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

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.
