                                    State of California
                                    AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—400—1
                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code

                                    SPIRALTECH INC.,   USA
                                          SPIRALMAX


   Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board         (ARB)   by Section
__—27156ofthe VehicleCode; and

  Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and
  39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

   IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:    That the installation of the SpiralMax device,
  manufactured by SpiralTech Inc., USA of 111 W. Fairview Avenue, San Gabriel,
  California 91776, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
  applicable vehicle pollution control system, and therefore, the device is
  exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code
  for installation on 1997 and older model—year gasoline—powered vehicles.

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

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

  Marketing of the device using an identification other than that shown in this
  Executive Order or marketing of the device for an application other than those
  listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is
  obtained from the ARB.

  This Executive Order is granted based on a determination that the device would
  not show an adverse effect in emissions if tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75
  Federal Test Procedure.  However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist
  to believe that use of SpiralMax may adversely affect emissions of motor
  vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the
  previously prescribed test procedures.  Accordingly, the ARB reserves the
  right to conduct emission tests, in the future, as such tests are developed,
  that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle phases.   If such
  test results demonstrate that SpiralMax adversely affects emissions during
  off—cycle conditions (defined as those conditions which are beyond the
  parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure)}, this Executive
  Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are
  validated.  Further, if such test results or other evidences provide the ARB
  with reasons to suspect that SpiralMax will affect the durability of the
  emission control system, SpiralTech Inc., USA shall be required to submit
  durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emission control
   system is not,   in fact,   affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
   demonstrates adequate durability.

   In addition to the foregoing,     the ARB reserves the right in the future to
   review this Executive Order and the exemption provided herein to assure that
   the exempted add—on or modified part continues to meet the standards and
  procedures of California Code of Regulations,        Title 13,   Section 2222,   et   seq.


SPIRALTECH INC.,   USA                                    EXECUTIVE ORDER D—400—1
SPIRALMAX                                                 (Page   2   of   2)



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

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 SPIRALTECH INC., USA*‘S SPIRALMAX.

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 Executive Order.  The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day
written notice of intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the
holder of the Executive 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 Executive Order may not be revoked
until a determination after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte,    California,   this   fig     da      f January 1997.
