                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—397—7
                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code

                        GREDDY PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.
                               "TURBOCHARGER 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;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Turbocharger Kit
manufactured and marketed by GReddy Performance Products, Inc. of 9 Vanderbilt, Irvine,
California 92618, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle
pollution control devices and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of
the California Vehicle Code for the following applications, except for vehicles equipped with
close—coupled catalysts, and vehicles certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) or more
stringent standards:

 Vehicle Make & Model       Mode—year           Eng. Size (Liter)   Engine No./Cam Type

  Honda Civic EX/Si         1996 — 2000         1.6                 SOHC VTEC

This Executive Order shall not apply to any GReddy Performance Products, Inc.‘s
Turbocharger Kit advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle
prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order is valid provided the installation instructions for the Turbocharger Kit will
not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as exempted by the Air
Resources Board (ARB), that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control
system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

GREDDY PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.                     .        EXECUTIVE ORDER D—397—7
"TURBOCHARGER KIT"                                             (Page 2 OF 3)

Marketing of this device using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order
or marketing of this device for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order
shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Execu'tive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of this
device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This exemption is issued based on submitted cold—start CVS—75 emissions test data
conducted at California Environmental Engineering, Santa Ana, California, which showed that
the Turbocharger Kit did not adversely affect exhaust emissions of the tested vehicle. The
test results are shown below.

                  2000 Honda Civic Si Coupe w/ a 1.6L Gasoline Engine
             NMHC (g/mi) CO (g/mi) NOx (g/imi) HCHO (g/mi)
Standard     0.125          3.4         0.4          0.015
Device      0.111           1.3         0.3          0.003

The above emissions test results showed that the test vehicle emission levels are below the
new vehicle certification standards and, therefore, meet the requirements specified in the
"Procedures for Exemption of Add—on and Modified Parts." This Executive Order is also
based on the On—Board Diagnostic I! (OBD II) testing conducted on the same test vehicle.
Test data showed that the Turbocharger Kit when installed on the vehicle did not affect the
vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the GReddy
Performance Products, Inc.‘s Turbocharger Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor
vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed
test procedures. 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 Turbocharger 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 ARB with reason to suspect that the
Turbocharger Kit will affect durability of the emission control systems, GReddy Performance
Products, 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 modified part
demonstrates adequate durability.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future to review this Executive
Order and the exemption provided herein to ensure 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 claims 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 is made after the hearing that
 grounds for revocation exist.              '   L                             —
