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

 Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section
 39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

  IT 1S ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Iceman Cool Air System,
— produced and marketed by Knight Engineering, 39360 3" Street, #107, East Palmdale,
  California 93550, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
  vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of
  Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the 1997—2000 Ford F—150 5.4 liter, 1997—2000
 Ford F—150 4.6 liter, and 2000 Ford Focus (p/n FV89700, F469700, & FCS2000,
 respectively).

 The Iceman Cool Air System consists of intake tubing, assorted brackets, and
 hardware.        ‘                                ’

 This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Iceman
 Cool Air System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
 those of the vehicle manufacturer.

 Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Iceman Cool Air 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 Iceman Cool Air System advertised, offered
 for sale, sold with, or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to
 an ultimate purchaser.

in this Executive Order or marketing of the Iceman Cool Air System 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
Iceman Cool Air System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.              '

This Executive Order is granted based on a determination that the Iceman Cool Air
System will not adversely affect tailpipe emissions when tested under the Cold Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. No systems that affect the Cold Start CVS—75 or
running loss emissions are bypassed in installing the Iceman Cool Air System.

Should future test data or other evidence provide the ARB with reason to suspect that
the Iceman Cool Air System will affect the durability of the emission control system,
Knight Engineering, 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.

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.

ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE

ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF KNIGHT
ENGINEERING‘S ICEMAN COOL AIR 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.
