                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—455—9
                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code


                               COMPTECH MACHINE
                          PERFORMANCE INTAKE AIR BOX KIT


Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) 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 Performance Intake Air
Box Kit, manufactured and marketed by Comptech Machine, 4717 Golden Foothill
Parkway, El Dorado Hills, CA 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 Honda Motor Corporation
vehicles listed in Exhibit A.

The Performance Intake Air Box Kit includes the following main components: machined
air box or intake tube (as applicable), reusable air filter element, assorted brackets, and
hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the
Performance Intake Air Box Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Performance Intake Air Box Kit advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

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

    COMPTECH MACHINE                                           EXECUTIVE ORDER D—455—9 .
    PERFORMANCE INTAKE AIR BOX KIT                        .    (Page 2 of 3)


    Marketing of the Performance Intake Air Box Kit using any identification other than that
    shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Performance Intake Air Box Kit for an
    application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless
    prior approval is obtained from the ARB. Exemption of the Performance Intake Air Box
    Kit 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 Intake Air Box Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied
    by the vehicle manufacturer.

    This Executive Order is granted based on examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
    (OBD—I1) system of the vehicle in the modified configuration, and an engineering
    evaluation of the emissions impact of the device if measured using the Cold—Start CVS—
    75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to
    believe that use of Comptech Machine‘s Performance Intake Air Box Kit may adversely
    affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
    parameters of the CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. 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 Comptech Machine Performance Intake Air Box Kit adversely
    affects emissions during off—cycle 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 Performance Intake Air Box Kit 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.

    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.

    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
    ANTJI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF COMPTECH
    MACHINE‘S PERFORMANCE INTAKE AIR BOX KIT.
