Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the MSD Multi—Spark Coil,
manufactured and marketed by the 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 systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1998 to 2008 model year General
Motors vehicles equipped with either a 4.8, 5.3, 5.7, 6.0, or 8.1 liter displacement engine.

The MSD Multi—Spark Coil is a multi—spark ignition coil designed to replace the stock
ignition coil. The MSD Multi—Spark Coil has no user adjustments.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the MSD
Multi—Spark Coil will not recormmend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those submitted by the device manufacturer.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any MSD Multi—Spark Coil advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to
an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the MSD Multi—Spark Coil using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the MSD Multi—Spark Coil 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
MSD Multi—Spark Coil may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.


                                            2.


This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation and On—Board
Diagnostic II (OBD I1) system testing on a 2008 model year Chevrolet Truck.
Examination of the OBD II system showed the MSD Multi—Spark Coill did not affect
OBD II system operation.

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 OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE MSD
MULTI—SPARK COIL.

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.
