                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—392—15
                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code

                       ADVANCED ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.
                          ‘    COLD AIR 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;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Cold Air System (CAS)
intake air kit, 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 systems, and therefore, the CAS
intake air kit is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for
installation on the following vehicles:

 CAS P/N        Vehicle MY        Vehicle Model                       Engine

 21—433         2000—2001         Mitsubishi Eclipse RS & GS         2.4 liter 14 4G64

The intake air kit includes an open—element air filter, aluminum inlet tubes, and assorted
mounting brackets and hoses, including the positive crankcase ventilation breather
hose.

The exemption is based on examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) 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 the Eclipse intake air kit will not affect the operation of the vehicles‘ OBD !I 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 kit 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 kit adversely affects 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
provides the ARB with reasons to suspect that the intake air kit will affect the durability

 COLD AIR SYSTEM                                             (Page 2 of 3)

 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/orthat the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate
 durability.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the intake air kit
 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 intake air kit, as exempt by
 the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicles‘ pollution control
 system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

 Marketing of the intake air kit 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 kit 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 kit 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.

 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
 intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive

 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 Executive
 Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
 for revocation exist.               *
