Conversion manufactured and marketed by Overland Parts, Inc., 5975 Rossi Lane Road,
Gilroy, California 95020 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Eurospec
93 Eurovan Engine Conversion may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on testing using a 1991 Volkswagen Vanagon modified
with the Eurospec 93 Eurovan Engine Conversion. Emission levels of the modified vehicle met
the applicable emission standards. Similar results are expected when the Eurospec 93
Eurovan Engine Conversion is installed in all applicable vehicles.
