Performance Header System                                (Page 2 of 3)



The following ULEV and Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (SULEV) engine families are
excluded from this Executive Order: 1999 model—year, XHNXVO2.3PL4, and 2000 model—
year YHNXVO2.3PL4, YHNXVO2.3NL5, and YHNXVO1.6KAS5.

The Performance Header System is a long tube style header manufactured out of 16 gage
stainless steel tubing. The location of the oxygen sensor is at the collector, similar to
the stock configuration. On vehicles where the existing oxygen sensor wire loom does not
reach the new oxygen sensor location, Comptech will provide a wire loom extension that will
plug into the factory connector.                               —

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Comptech Machine Performance Header System
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 the installation instructions for the Performance
Header System 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 Performance Header 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.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data on a 1998 Honda
Accord certified to a Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standard:

                   NMOG CO         NOX
Standards          0.075 34         0.2
device w/ dfs      0.033 0.7       01

Performance Header System                            (Page 3 of 3)



Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Performance Header System installed on
the vehicle met the vehicle‘s applicable emission standard during Cold Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD It)
testing conducted on the same 1998 LEV Accord. Test data showed that the Performance
Header System when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its
OBD II monitoring.

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
PERFORMANCE HEADER 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 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.

Executive Order D—455—3, dated May, 1999, is superseded and of no further force and effect.

Executed at El Monte, California, this 33       day of August 2000.
