On Ford vehicles, the location of the oxygen sensor is either at the collector or the connecting pipes, similar to the stock configuration. On Honda vehicles, the location of the oxygen sensor is either at the collector of the header, in the connecting pipe, or a balance tube in the connecting pipe. On vehicles where the existing oxygen sensor wire loom does not reach the new oxygen sensor location, PaceSetter will provide a wire loom extension that will plug into the factory connector.

 The Exhaust Headers are manufactured out of a 16 gage mild steel tubing. On Ford vehicles, the
 location of the oxygen sensor is either at the collector or the connecting pipes, similar to the
 stock configuration. On Honda vehicles, the location of the oxygen sensor is either at the
 collector of the header, in the connecting pipe, or a balance tube in the connecting pipe. On
 vehicles where the existing oxygen sensor wire loom does not reach the new oxygen sensor location,
 PaceSetter will provide a wire loom extension that will plug into the factory connector.

 This Executive Order shall not apply to any Pacesetter Marketing, Inc.‘s Exhaust Header 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 is valid provided that installation instructions for the exhaust header will not
 recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

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

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

 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 vehicles manufacturer.

 This Executive Order is granted based on emissions test data generated on a 1998 Honda Accord
 LX and a 1999 Ford F—150, both of which are certified to the low emission vehicle standard. Testing
 consisted of one Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedures in the modified configuration. Emission
 levels of the modified vehicles met the applicable emission standards. The following test results are
 in grams per mile with the deterioration factors applied:

  Update Sheet


_ This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) testing conducted on the same vehicles Test data
 showed that the headers when installed on the vehicles did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

 A modified oxygen sensor placement is used on 4 cyl. Honda vehicle applications, the sensor is placed in a short balance
 tube that is located in a connecting pipe after the header. The sensor remained near its stock location which did not affect
 emissions or OBD I! monitoring based on submitted data. The Ford headers retained the oxygen sensor in its stock
  location.

  For the Honda, NMOG and HCHO were calculated using the following conversion factors: NMOG/NMHC=0.9707 and
  HCHO/NMHC= 0.0150, NMHC was measured at 0.053. 50K deterioration factors (dfs) used were NMOG, 0.003, CO,
 0.166, NOx, 0.045 and HCHO, 0.00012. Vehicle test weight and horse power, 3500 lbs. and 7.8.

  For the Ford, NMOG and HCHO were calculated using the following conversion factors: NMOG/NMHC=1.0335 and
  HCHO/NMHC= 0.0161, NMHC was measured at 0.101. 50K deterioration factors (dfs) used were NMOG, 0.0083 CO,
  0.06, NOx, 0.02 and HCHO, 0.0003. Vehicle test weight and horse power, 5500 lbs. and 13.8.
