This Executive Order shall not apply to any Magna Charger Supercharger Kits 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
 shail be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

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.

Test results showed that the supercharger kit when installed on the vehicles did not cause
tailpipe emissions to exceed the 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 I1) testing conducted on the same test vehicles. Test data showed that the supercharger
. kit when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD 11
  monitoring.

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Magna
Charger Corporation‘s Supercharger Kits 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 kit 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.

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
CORPORATION‘S GENERAL MOTORS 5.3L SUPERCHARGER KIT.

 No claims 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.
