                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156

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) 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 systems, 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:

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.

This Executive Order is granted based on an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
systems of a 2000 model—year Ford Focus and a 1998 model—year Honda Accord in the
modified configuration and an engineering evaluation of the impact the intake air kits have on
vehicle emissions.

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 Federal Test Procedure (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this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are validated.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 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.                                          |

COLD AIR SYSTEM & SHORT RAM SYSTEM                               (Page 2 of 2)


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‘ emission 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
AND 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 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.

Executed at El Monte, California, this éz          day o
