                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—496            .
                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code


                         ADVANCED CONCEPTS
          AC AUTOTECHNIC POWER INTAKE AND REVOLUTION INTAKE


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 AC Autotechnic Power
Intake and Revolution Intake, manufactured and marketed by Advanced Concepts,
18021 E. Arrow Highway, Unit #A / #B, Irwindale, California 91706 have 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
Acura, Honda, and Mitsubishi vehicles listed in Exhibit A.                      =

The AC Autotechnic Power Intake and Revolution Intake include the following main
components: open—element reusable air filter, intake system tubing, assorted brackets,
and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the AC
Autotechnic Power Intake and Revolution Intake 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 AC Autotechnic Power
Intake and Revolution Intake, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely
affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this
Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any AC Autotechnic Power Intake and
Revolution Intake advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on, a motor vehicle
prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the AC Autotechnic Power Intake and Revolution Intake using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the


AC ADVANCED CONCEPTS                                      EXECUTIVE ORDER D—496
AC AUTOTECHNIC POWER INTAKE                                      (Page 2 of 3)
AND REVOLUTION INTAKE

Autotechnic Power Intake and Revolution Intake 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 AC Autotechnic Power Intake and
Revolution Intake shall not be construed as exemption to seil, 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 AC
Autotechnic Power Intake and Revolution Intake may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
(OBD—I!) system of the vehicle in the modified configuration, and an engineering        _
evaluation of the emissions impact of the device if measured using the Cold—Start CVS—
75 Federal Test Procedure. However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to
believe that use of the Advanced Concepts AC Autotechnic Power Intake and
Revolution Intake systems may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when
operating under conditions outside the parameters of the CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure. 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 Advanced
Concepts AC Autotechnic Power Intake and Revolution Intake adversely affect
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 AC
Autotechnic Power Intake and Revolution Intake systems will affect the durability of
emission control systems, Advanced Concepts shall be required to submit durability
data to show that the durability of vehicle emission control systems are 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 ADVANCED
CONCEPTS‘ AC AUTOTECHNIC POWER INTAKE AND REVOLUTION INTAKE.

AC AUTOTECHNIC POWER INTAKE                                 (Page 3 of 3)
AND REVOLUTION INTAKE

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   5 n'(day of April 2000.
