                            Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                         of the Vehicle Code

                           HIGH PERFORMANCE ENGINE COMPUTER


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 IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the High Performance Engine Computer,
manufactured and marketed by Comptech Machine, 4717 Golden Foothill Parkway, El Dorado Hills,
California 95762 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 Honda Motor Company vehicles listed, excluding any vehicle certified to a low
emission vehicle standard:

             Model—Year           Model                Part Number
              1991—99             NSX                  11.0000                        —

              1992—99             Prelude              61.0000

The following low emission engine families are excluded from this Executive Order: 1996 model—
year, THN1.6VJG2EK, THN1.6VJG3EK, THN1.6VJGKGK, 1997 model—year, VHN1.6VJG2EK,
VHN1.6VJG3EK, VHN1.6VJGKGK, 1998 model—year, WHNXVO1.6CA3, WHNXVO1.6JL2, and
WHNXVO1.6KA¥4.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions fdr the High Performance
Engine Computer will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
Honda Motor Company.

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

Marketing of the High Performance Engine Computer using any identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of the High Performance Engine Computer 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 High Performance Engine Computer 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 High
Performance Engine Computer may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

  Aigh Peéerformance Engine Computer                             (Page 2 of 2)



 This Executive Order is granted based on the following submitted emissions test data on a 1996
 Acura Integra equipped with the 1.8 liter engine and certified to a tier 1 emission standard:

                    NMHC     CO     NOX
  Standards         0.25 _   3.4    0.4
  Device w/idfs     0.13     2.6    0.2

 Test results showed that the High Performance Engine Computer when installed on the vehicle did
 not cause tailpipe emissions to exceed the vehicle‘s applicable emission standard during a Cold
 Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic
 II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same vehicle. Test data showed that the High Performance
 Engine Computer when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD
 l1 monitoring.

 However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the High Performance
 Engine Computer 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 High Performance Engine Computer adversely affect emissions during
  off—cyclie 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 High Performance Engine Computer will affect the durability of the
  emission control system, Comptech Machine 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.

 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 COMPTECH MACHINE‘S HIGH PERFORMANCE ENGINE COMPUTER


 No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", rhay 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 after hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

  Executed at El Monte, California, this   Z.S’rgay of March 2000
