                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—40—42

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                            Autotronic Controls Corporation
                                       MSD Coils

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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the MSD Coils, 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 the following vehicle applications listed in
Exhibit A.

The MSD Coil is an ignition coil designed to replace the stock ignition coil. The MSD
Coils have no user adjustments and may be in colors other than black.

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

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the MSD 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 MSD Coils using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the MSD 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.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation and prior On—Board
Diagnostic II (OBD 1I) system testing which showed the MSD Coils did not affect
OBD II system operation.


                                             )M

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
CoOILS.

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 is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist. .


Executed at El Monte, California, this     23            day of July 2009.
