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 and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the PowerJet USA, marketed by James
Import Corporation, 10300 S.W. 72th Street, Suite 158, Miami, Florida 33173 and manufactured
by Daishin Industrial Co., LTD. 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 PowerJet USA is an air bleed—type device that is attached to an intake manifold vacuum
source. The PowerJet USA 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 PowerJet USA 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 PowerJet USA, 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 PowerJet USA using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of the PowerJet USA 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 PowerJet USA 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 PowerJet USA
may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


JAMES IMPORT CORPORATION                                         Executive Order D—480
PowerJet USA                                                           (Page 2 of 2)


This Executive Order shall not apply to any James Import Corporation‘s PowerJet USA advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with its transfer to
an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order is granted based on the following emissions test data conducted on a 1986
Toyota Pickup, 1996 GMC C1500 Pickup, 1997 Ford Mustang, and a 1998 Nissan Maxima:

                        1986 Toyota, 2.4L                  1996 GMC C1500, 5.7L
                      HC CO         NOX           HC_      CO    NOX
Baseline             0.39 6.0       15            0.17     2.3   018
DF6                  0.36 5.6       1.6           0.19     2.2   015
                    1997 Ford Mustang, 3.8L             1998 Nissan Maxima, 3.0L
                     HC_     CO     NOX           HC       CO    NOX
Baseline             012     1.5    0.1           0.1      06    0.2
DF6                  0.11    112    0.1           0.1      0.5   0.2

Test results showed that the device when installed on the vehicles were either below the 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 during a Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing
conducted on the 1996 GMC C1500, 1997 Ford Mustang, and the 1998 Nissan Maxima. Test
data showed that the device when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to
perform its OBD II monitoring.
