The Shorty Headers are a direct replacement exhaust header manufactured out of 16 gage mild steel. The
installation of the header utilizes the use of the stock connecting pipes and does not require the relocation
of any sensor.

This exemption is issued based on previous testing conducted on a General Motors truck which showed no
impact on emissions and on the following emission test results for Chrysler and Ford trucks submitted by
the manufacturer:

                       1994 Ford 5.0L F—150         1996 Dodge 5.2L Ram Truck
                       NMHC CO          NOX         NMHC CO        NOX
Standards              0.50    9.0      1.0         0.39    5.0    1.
W/ device              0.09    1.1      0.8         0.31    4.6    0.7

Emission levels of both vehicles with the headers installed met the applicable emission standards and
therefore comply with the requirements specified under "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and
Modified Parts.
