                                     State of California
                                 AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—425—9

                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     of the Vehicle Code

                                 Toyota Racing Development
                                    Supercharger System

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in flfie 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 Supercharger System,
manufactured and marketed by Toyota Racing Development, 1382 Valencia Ave., Tustin,
California 92780 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 Toyota vehicles, excluding any vehicle certified to the Ultra Low
Emission Vehicle (ULEV) standards: 1994—2003 3.0L Camry, 1994—1999 3.0L Avalon,
1999—2003 3.0L Solara, 1998—2000 3.0L Sienna, 1995—2002 3.4L trucks, 1994—2001 2.7L trucks,
and 1995—2001 2.4L trucks.

The Supercharger System includes the following main components: Eaton supercharger with
integrated intake manifold, new EGR tube to accommodate the supercharger installation, and all
the necessary hardware needed for installation. The stock air filter housing and intake air tubing
is retained, all emission related components including the throttle—body are transferred to the new
intake manifold in a stock functional location. No changes are made to the stock ignition system.
Supercharger pulley diameter and boost rating for each engine size are as follows:

     Engine Size             Supercharger Pulley Diameter         Rating

        3.4L                             2.215"                       6 psi.
        3.O0L                            3.2"                         6 psi.
        2.7TL                            2.75"                        4.5 psi.
        2.AL                             2.87"                        4.5 psi

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the supercharger 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 Supercharger System, 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 Supercharger System 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 supercharger using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of the supercharger 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 supercharger 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 supercharger
may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emissions test data on two:
vehicles certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standards:

                  1999 4Runner, 3.4L                          1999 Solara, 3.0L

                   NMOG CO         NOX     HCHO               NMOG CO         NOX     HCHO
Standard           0100 4.4        0.4     0.018              0.075 3.4       0.2     0.015
Device w/ dfs      0.085    0.5    0.1     0.004              0.071    0.5    0.      0.002

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Supercharger System installed on the
vehicles met the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards during Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) test
conducted on the same vehicles. Test data showed that the Supercharger System when
installed on the vehicles did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that the
Toyota Racing Development‘s Supercharger System did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions
during the Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the ARB finds that reasonable
grounds exist to believe that use of the Toyota Racing Development‘s Supercharger System 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 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
supercharger 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 evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the
supercharger will affect the durability of the emission control systems, Toyota Racing
Development 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.

                                                 —3.


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 Title 13, California Code of Regulations,
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 ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY
ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE TOYOTA RACING DEVELOPMENT‘S SUPERCHARGER
SYSTEM.

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 ggfi day of December 2002.
