                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—392—18

                               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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Cold Air System (CAS) and
the Short Ram System (SRS) intake air kits, manufactured by Advanced Engine
Management, Inc. of 2205 126" 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 the SRS intake air kits are exempt from the prohibitions in
Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the gasoline vehicles listed in
Attachment A.                    '

This exemption excludes all vehicles subject to the California LEV 11 Program exhaust
emission standards and excludes certain vehicles subject to the Supplemental Federal
Test Procedures and standards. The engine families (or test groups) excluded from this
exemption are also identified in Attachment A.

The CAS and the SRS intake air kits include an open—element air filter, aluminum inlet
tube(s), and assorted mounting brackets and hoses, including the positive crankcase
ventilation breather hose in some applications.                                 ‘

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions and On—Board Diagnostic |I
(OBD 11) System testing that Advanced Engine Management, Inc. conducted with its
intake air kits. Test results showed that the intake air kits have no adverse impact on
the vehicles‘ Federal Test Procedure (FTP) emissions or their OBD II Systems.

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
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


                                             —2.

is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified parts demonstrate 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 or operating conditions of the intake air kits, 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 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 kits as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any intake air kits 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 AND SHORT RAM SYSTEM
INTAKE AIR KITS.

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

                                            —3.

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

Executed at El Monte, California, this 31         day of December 2002.
