                                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—488
                                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                                        of the Vehicle Code


                                                    MAGNA CHARGER, INC.
                                                  6 PSI. SUPERCHARGER KIT


     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 6 PSI. Supercharger Kit, manufactured and marketed
     by Allen Engine Development, 255 Lambert Street, Unit #1, Oxnard, California 93030 or Magna Charger, Inc., 3172
     Bunsen Avenue, Unit K, Ventura, California 93003 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 following Ford 4.6L and 5.4L vehicle applications: 1994/95 Crown Victoria, Grand Marquis, Town Car, 1994
     to 1997 Thunderbird/Cougar, 1996 to 2000 Mustang, and 1997 to 2000 trucks.

     The 6 PSI. Supercharger Kit includes the following main components: Eaton supercharger with a 2.94" diameter
     pulley (4.6L) and a 2.4" pulley (5.4L), intake manifold plenum, intake manifold runners, intercooler, throttle body
     adapter, electric water pump, high flow fuel pump, and fuel pressure regulator. The EGR valve is relocated between
     the throttle body and the supercharger intake. The stock air cleaner is maintained.

     This Executive Order shall not apply to any Magna Charger, Inc. 6 PSI. Supercharger Kit advertised, offered for sale,
     or sold with or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

     This Executive.Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the supercharger 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 supercharger, 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 supercharger using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of
     the supercharger 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 supercharger 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 supercharger 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 submitted by the kit manufacturer:

                                1998 Ford Expedition
                            NMOG CO          NOX      HCHO
      Standards             0.195     5.0    0.6     0.022
      Device w/ dfs         0.113      3.2      0.1      0.001

      Test results showed that the Supercharger Kit when installed on the vehicle did not cause tailpipe emissions to exceed
      the vehicle‘s applicable emission standard 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 same test vehicle. Test data showed that the
      supercharger kit when installed on the vehicles did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

      However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Magna Charger, Inc.‘s Supercharger
      Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the
      previously prescribed test procedures. 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 supercharger 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 supercharger will affect the durability of the emission control
      systems, Magna Charger, Inc. 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 ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF MAGNA
      CHARGER, INC.‘S SUPERCHARGER KIT.

      No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made with respect to the action taken
      herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

      Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The order may be revoked only
      after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in which period the holder of the order may request in
      writing a hearing to contest the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of
      receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after hearing that grounds for revocation
      exist.

      Executed at El Monte, California, this     _/ 7   day of October 1999.
