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 39515 and 39516 of the Health and
Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Stillen High Flow Intake System,
manufactured by Stillen Sportparts of 3176 Airway Avenue, Costa Mesa, California 92626, has
been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system, and
therefore, the Stillen High Flow Intake System is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code for installation on the following Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. (Nissan) vehicles:

STILLEN SPORTPARTS                                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—436—3
STILLEN HIGH FLOW INTAKE SYSTEM                                    (Page 2 of 3)


         The above vehicle application includes those Nissan vehicles that have been certified to
         meet the transitional low—emission vehicle emission standards (0.125 grams/mile non—
         methane organic gas standard at 50,000 miles).

This exemption is based on an emission test conducted by Stillen Sportparts on a 1996 model—year
1.6 liter Nissan Sentra. Stillen Sportparts submitted the following Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure emission results:

                                            NMOG           CO         NOx     HCHO
                                                           (grams per mile)


            With Device                     0.114          1.644      0.160   0.001
            50,000 Mile Standards           0.125          3.4        0.4     0.015



The test data show that the Stillen High Flow Intake System did not adversely affect the exhaust
emissions of the 1996 model—year Nissan Sentra. The same emissions impact is expected when the
Stillen High Flow Intake System is installed on the vehicles for which the exemption is requested.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Stillen High Flow Intake
System not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of the vehicle
manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Stillen High Flow Intake System, as
exempt by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicles‘ pollution control
system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Stillen High Flow Intake System using 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 is granted based on the results from emission tests conducted in accordance
with Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds
exist to believe that use of the Stillen High Flow Intake System may adversely affect emissions of
motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed
test procedure. Accordingly, the ARB reserves the right to conduct additional emission tests in the
future, as such tests are developed, which will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle
phases. If such test results demonstrate that the Stillen High Flow Intake System 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.


STILLEN SPORTPARTS                                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—436—3
STILLEN HIGH FLOW INTAKE SYSTEM                               (Page 3 of 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 California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et
seq.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Stillen High
Flow Intake System 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 STILLEN SPORTPARTS‘
STILLEN HIGH FLOW INTAKE 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 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.

Executive Order No. D—436, dated August 26, 1997, has been superseded and is of no further force
and effect.
