                                       "YELLOWJACKET IGNITION AMPLIFIER"
                                         "DIRECTHITS IGNITION AMPLUIFIER"

                 WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156 and 38391, and Title 13, California Code of
                 Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222, authorize the California Air Resources

                 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations. Exemption of the "Yellowjacket" and

                 air/fuel ratio, and RPM settings, choke settings, etc., are not altered.

                 prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the model—year vehicles
                 stated above subject to the following conditions:                                      '

                    1. No changes are permitted to the "Yellowjacket" or "DirectHits" ignition amplifier as
                 described in the application for exemption. Any changes to the ignition amplifier, the
                 installation instructions, or any of its components, and other factors addressed in this
                 order must be evaluated and approved by the ARB prior to marketing in California.




                                                                            p— 17?
