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 MSD Coils manufactured and marketed by
Autotronic Controls Corporation, 1490 Henry Brennan Drive, El Paso, Texas 79936 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 the following vehicle applications:

8252                     Blaster HVC Coil       1998 and older vehicles

This exemption is issued based on information supplied by the device manufacturer which demonstrates that the
ignition system components met the requirements of compliance criteria for ignition system components as specified
under the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts" and therefore, will not increase emissions.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Coils will not recommend tuning the
vehicles to specifications different from those of the vehicle‘s manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Coils, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which
adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Coils using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the
Coils 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 Coils 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 constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Coils may have on any warranty
either expressed or implied by the vehicle‘s manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVEORDER 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 OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF
AUTOTRONIC‘S COILS.

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 a 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.

Executive Orders D—40—15, dated June 1994 and D—40—20, dated December 1994, are superseded and of no further force
and effect.                                       L
