                                           EXECUTIVE ORDER D—397—3
                                    Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                                 of the Vehicle Code

                                GREDDY PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.
                                   MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE TURBO KIT

_ Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code; and

 Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of the Health and
 Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;                                 2      .

 IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit (Part
 Number 198752) consisting of the following main parts: Mitsubishi turbocharger and suction pipe,
 manufactured by Trust Company, Ltd. of 3155—5 Odai, Shibayama—machi, Sanbu— gun, Chiba 289—16 Japan
 and marketed by GReddy Performance Products, Inc. of 9 Vanderbilt, Irvine, CA 92718 has been found
 not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt
 from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on 1995 through 1997 model
 wear 2.0L Mitsubishi Eclipse models originally equipped with a turbocharger.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Mitsubishi Eclipsec Turbo
 Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those submitted by GReddy
 Performance Products, Inc.

 Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit, as exempt by the
 Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall
 invalidate this executive order.

 Marketing of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit using any identification other than that shown in this
 Executive Order or marketing of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit for an application other than those listed
 in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.
 Exemption of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale,
 or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

 This Executive Order does not constifute any opinion as to the effect that the use of the Mitsubishi Eclipse
 Turbo Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

  MITSUBISHI ECLIPSE TURBO KIT                                      .           (Page 2 of 2)

 ~‘"his Executive Order is granted based on emissions tests conducted in accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75
  Federal Test Procedure. However, the Air Resources Board finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe
  that use of the Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when
  operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test procedures.
  Accordingly, the Air Resources Board 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 Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit adversely affects emissions during off—cycle
  conditions (defined as those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal
  Test Procedure), 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 Air Resources Board with reason to
  suspect that the Mitsubishi Eclipse Turbo Kit will affect the durability of the emission control, GReddy
  Performance Products, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of the
  vehicle emissions control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
  demonstrates adequate durability.                                                                |

  In addition to the foregoing, the Air Resources Board 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 Title 13, California Code of Regulations, 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 order. The order may be
  revoked only after ten day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in which period the holder of the
  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 order may not be revoked until a
  determination after hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
  Executed at El Monte, California, this   5        day of November 1997.

                                                  R. B. Suinmerfield,
                                                  Mobile Source Operations. Division
