                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                        of the Vehicle Code

                          ADVANCED ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.
                                 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;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Short Ram System, 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 Short Ram System is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for installation on the following Honda Motor Co., Ltd. and Mitsubishi Motor Manufacturing
of America, Inc. vehicles:

  22—430     1995—1997      Eclipse GS        2.0   liter non—turbo engine

This exemption is based on examination of the on—board diagnostic (OBD II) system of the vehicle with
Advanced Engine Management, Inc.‘s Cold Air System and an engineering evaluation of the emission
impact of the Cold Air System on the vehicle. Based on comparison of the design and operating
principles of the Cold Air System and the Short Ram System, it was determined that the Short Ram

      ADVANCED ENGINE MANAGEMENT, INC.                                      EXECUTIVE ORDER D—392—6
/’\   SHORT RAM SYSTEM                                                      (Page 2 of 3)

      System will not affect the operation of the vehicles‘ OBD II system and will not adversely affect the
      vehicles‘ 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 Short Ram 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 Short Ram 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 Short Ram 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 Short Ram 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 Short Ram 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 Short Ram 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 Short Ram 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 Short Ram 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.


      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.
