                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—488—1
                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code


                        MAGNA CHARGER CORPORATION
                      GENERAL MOTORS 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 General Motors
Supercharger kit manufactured and marketed by Magna Charger Corporation of 3172
Bunsen Avenue, Unit D, Ventura, California 93003 has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution control devices and, therefore, is
exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code for those
vehicle applications as listed in the Exhibit, which is attached hereto and incorporated
herein.

The General Motors Supercharger Kit includes the following main components: Eaton
supercharger with a 3.0" pulley, intake manifold plenum, throttle body adapter and
FCC1 frequency calibrator. The throttle body is moved to the supercharger inlet. All
other emission—related components are in the stock location.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Magna Charger General Motors
Supercharger Kit advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new 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 device, as exempted by the
Air Resources Board (ARB), that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of this device for an application other than those listed in this
Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.


     MAGNA CHARGER CORPORATION                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—488—1
     GENERAL MOTORS SUPERCHARGER                              (Page 2 of 3)



     This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of this
     device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
     manufacturer.

     This exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data from an independent
     laboratory which showed that the supercharger kit did not adversely affect exhaust
     emissions of the tested vehicle. The test results are shown below.

                              Independent Laboratory Test Results

                                                      NMOG        CO         NOX      HCHO

     Test results showed that the supercharger kit when installed on the vehicle did not
     cause tailpipe emissions to exceed the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards during
     the Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on
     the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same test vehicle. Test
     data showed that the supercharger kit when installed on the vehicle did not affect the
     vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD I! monitoring.

     However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Magna
     Charger Corporation‘s General Motors 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 superchargerkit 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 kit will
     affect durability of the emission control systems, Magna Charger Corporation 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 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.

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.

                    TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS


       1.         INTRODUCTION

                  Magna Charger Corporation of 3172 Bunsen Avenue, Unit D, Ventura, California

       93003, has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions of California Vehicle Code Section

       (VC) 27156 for the vehicles listed in the Appendix. Magna Charger Corporation has

       submitted a completed application and all the required information, as well as exhaust

       emissions test data from a 1999 5.7L GMC Yukon 1500 which was tested in Los Angeles,

       California at the Automotive Club of Southern California (ACSC).

       H.         CONCLUSIONS

                  Based on the submitted information and the results from exhaust emissions tests

       performed at ACSC, the staff has determined that Magna Charger Corporation‘s General

       Motors Supercharger Kit will not have any adverse effects on the exhaust emissions from

       vehicles for which the exemption is requested.

       H1.        RECOMMENDATION

                  The staff recommends that Magna Charger Corporation be granted an exemption

       from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section 27156 for those vehicles listed in the

       Appendix and that Executive Order D—488—1 be issued.

       IV.        DEVICE DESCRIPTION

                  The Magna Charger Corporation General Motors Supercharger Kit is designed for

       installation on the vehicles/engines listed in the Appendix.


The kit operates in in conjunction with the original equipment manutfacturer‘s (OEM)

computer controlled fuel injected system and emission control systems already certified with

the stock engine.

           The purpose of supercharging an engine is to increase its volumetric efficiency

and power output at particular engine loads and throttle openings. At light engine loads and

small throttle openings, power output is the same as a normally aspirated engine. At heavy

engine loads and increased throttle openings, the manifold pressure is increased by the

supercharger allowing more air and fuel to enter the engine, resulting in a higher power

output. The supercharger is driven utilizing the engine‘s standard serpentine belt loop

system.

           The Supercharger used for this kit is an Eaton roots type blower, designed to have

a maximum boost of 5 psi. Boost is limited only by the diameter of the input pulley which is 3

nches.    Installation of the kit does not require any major modifications to the stock General

Motors engines, except for the new intake manifold components and the relocation of the

factory throttle body which is moved to the supercharger inlet. The EGR is in the stock

location while the PCV and the Evaporative purge line are in the stock location relative to the

throttle body. The stock air cleaner is utilized with the supercharger installation and is

maintained in the stock location. The FCC1 Frequency Calibrator is designed to modify the

output of frequency of the air flow meter in the vehicle. The FCC1 is calibrated to work under

open loop conditions only to add fuel for the proper air/fuel mixture. New parts include the

manifold adapter plate, throttle body adapter for the PCV, inlet and outlet plenum and the

FCC1 frequency calibrator. All the necessary hardware needed to install the supercharger is

included with the kit.


V.        DiSCUSSION

          A 1999 GMC Yukon 1500 equipped with a 5.7 liter fuel injected engine was used

for the evaluation of the supercharger kit. The exhaust emission test was performed at the

Automobile Club of Southern California laboratory. The testing consisted of one CVS—75

Federal Test Procedure (FTP) in the modified (supercharger kit installed) configuration along

with an On—Board Diagnostic (OBD I1) systems check to demonstrate Magna Charger

Corporation‘s supercharger‘s compatibility with the vehicle‘s OBD II system. The

dynamometer inertia weight and horsepower settings were 5500—lbs and 14.3—hp,

respectfully. A summary of the test results are shown below:

           The test results from the exhaust emission tests show that the vehicle‘s emission

levels with the Magna Charger Corporation‘s supercharger installed meet the applicable

emissions standards and comply with the requirements for "Exemption of Add—On and

Modified Parts." The ARB did not perform testing to confirm the emission test results

submitted by the applicant. However, ARB staff evaluated the impact of the supercharger on

the OBD II system. Scan tool testing confirmed that the headers did not affect the vehicle‘s

ability to perform OBD II system monitoring. The staff concludes that the installation of the

Magna Charger Corporation‘s supercharger will not have an adverse effect on exhaust

emissions on the vehicles for which the exemption is requested. Magna Charger Corporation

has submitted all the required information and fulfilled the requirements for an exemption.
