                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—400—7

                                    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 27156 of the
    Vehicle Code; and

    Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 89515 and 39516 of the
    Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003; .

    IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the SpiralMax device,
    manufactured by SpiralTech Inc. USA of 111 W. Fairview Avenue, San Gabriel, California
    91776—2940, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
    emission control system, and therefore, the device is exempt from the prohibitions in
    Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on 2004 and older model—year gasoline
    vehicles.

    This exemption is based on an engineering evaluation of the SpiralMax device. Based
    on its design and operating principles, it was concluded that the device would not
    adversely affect the vehicles‘ On—Board Diagnostic II system or their exhaust emissions
    when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP).

    However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the device
    may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions
    outside the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 FTP. Accordingly, the ARB reserves
    the right to conduct additional 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 the device adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions
    (defined as those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75
    FTP), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of the date the test results
    are validated. Further, if such test results or other evidgnce provides the ARB with
    reasons to suspect that the device 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 device demonstrates adequate durability.

    This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the device do not
    recommend tuning the vehicles 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 the vehicle‘s emission control system,
    shall invalidate this Executive Order.


                                             2.

Marketing of the device using an identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or 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 shall not apply to any device advertised, offered for sale, sold
with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate
purchaser.

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.

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.

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.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF SPIRALTECH INC.
USA‘S SPIRALMAX DEVICE.                              '

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 is made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   _/5 7 day of March 2004.




                                       Alleéyons, Chief
