 ADVANCED ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.                                       EXECUTIVE ORDER D—392—5
 AEM COLD AIR SYSTEM                                                    (Page 2 of 3)

  This exemption is based on examination of the on—board diagnostic (OBD II) system of the test vehicle
  with the AEM Cold Air System and an engineering evaluation of the emission impact of the device on
  the vehicle. Advanced Engine Management, Inc. tested the device on a 1998 model—year 2.3 liter Honda
  Accord using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and showed that it does not affect the
  operation of the vehicle‘s OBD II system. Also, based on engineering evaluation of the operating
_ principles of the device and its required modifications, it was concluded that the device will not
  adversely affect the vehicle‘s exhaust emissions when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 FTP.

  However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the AEM Cold Air System
  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 AEM Cold Air System 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  Start CVS—75 FTP), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are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 reason to suspect that
  the AEM Cold Air System 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 AEM Cold Air System not
  recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

  Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the AEM Cold Air System, as exempt by the
  ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicles‘ pollution control system, shall invalidate
  this Executive Order.

  Marketing of the AEM Cold Air System using identification other than that shown in this Executive
  Order or for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
  approval is obtained from the ARB. Exemption of the AEM Cold Air System 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 does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the AEM Cold Air
  System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

  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.


ADVANCED ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.                                      EXECUTIVE ORDER D—392—5
AEM COLD AIR SYSTEM                                                   (Page 3 of 3)

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.

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 after the hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.

Executive Orders D—392, D—392—1, D—392—2, D—392—3, and D—392—4 have been superseded and are of no
further force and effect.                     4
