    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

    IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Quick Power DF6, marketed by AP
    International, 3640 S. Sepulveda Blyvd., Suite 205, Los Angeles, California 90034 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 all light and medium—duty 1998 and older
    gasoline vehicles that are certified to a Tier 0 or Tier 1 emission standards.

    The Quick Power DF6 is an air bleed—type device that is attached to an intake manifold vacuum source.
    The DF6 has three main parts: A metal filter cap, round cylindrical housing, and internal magnets which
    control vacuum flow. Vacuum flow is preset by the manufacturer.

    This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Quick Power DF6 will not
    recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

    Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Quick Power DF6, 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 Quick Power DF6 using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
    Order or marketing of the Quick Power DF6 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 Quick Power DF6 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 Quick Power DF6
    may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

    This Executive Order is granted based on the following emissions test data conducted on a 1986 Toyota

vehicle‘ s baseline emission levels or within the allowable increases of 0.1 grams/mile or 10 percent on
HC or NOX, and 1.0 grams/mile or 15 percent on CO. This Executive Order is also based on On Board

Nissan Maxima. Test data showed that the Quick Power DF6 when installed on the vehicle did not affect
the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.
