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 Exhaust Manifold, manufactured
by GReddy Performance Products, Inc. of 9 Vanderbilt, Irvine, California 92618, has been

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Exhaust Manifold

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

                                                2.

Mérketing of GReddy Performance Products, Inc. ‘s Exhaust Manifold using any 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 Exhaust Manifold 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 Exhaust
Manifold may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified configuration
using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure and an examination of the On—Board
Diagnostic !I (OBD II) system. A 2000 Honda Civic EX with a 1.6 liter engine
(YHNXVO1.6TA3, LEV, PC) was used for the evaluation of the GReddy Performance
Products, Inc. ‘s Exhaust Manifold. Test results showed that the installation of the Exhaust
Manifold does not affect the proper monitoring of the vehicle‘s OBD II system or cause an
adverse effect on exhaust emissions. Results from emissions testing conducted at the
California Environmental Engineering are shown below (in grams per mile):

                      50k       NMOG           CO        NOx       HCHO
            Emission Level      0.066         0.8        0.15      0.001
                (w. DF applied)
                Standard        0.075         3.4        0.20       0.015

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.

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 OF THE GREDDY PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC—‘S
EXHAUST MANIFOLDS.

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 it, during 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 recommendation is made, after the hearing, that
grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this    /-?       day of September 2001.
