Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the MSD 5 Ignition
System, P/N 5200 (multiple spark system), manufactured by Autotronic
Controls Corporation of 1490 Henry Brennan Drive, El Paso, Texas 79936 has

ignition systems.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
the Ignition System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Ignition System,
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 Ignition System using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Ignition System for an
application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
use of the Ignition System may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, ORANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF AUTOTRONIC CONTROLS CORPORATION‘S IGNITION SYSTEM.
