 COMPTECH MACHINE                            .            Executive Order D—455—8
 Performance Header System                                (Page 2 of 3)




 The Performance Header System is made up of a short tube style header and connecting Y—
 pipe 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.                                                  0.

 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 2000 Acura TL
 certified to the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) emission standards:

                    NMOG CO           NOX    HCHO
 Standards          0.040 1.7          0.2   0.008
 device w/ dfs      0.034 0.3         0.1    0.001

 Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Performance Header System installed on
 the vehicle met the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards during Cold Start CVS—75 Federal
 Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic If (OBD II)
 testing conducted on the same vehicle. 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.
