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 Smart Cam Lifters,
manufactured and marketed by Smart Cam Products, 1233 Cushman Ave., San Diego,
California 92110 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 1994 and older General Motors small block V8 engines equipped with flat
tappet lifters.

The Smart Cam Lifters are a full set of hydraulic lifters designed to replace the stock V8 small
block engine lifters.

will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Smart Cam Lifters, 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 Smart Cam Lifters using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Smart Cam Lifters 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 Smart Cam Lifters 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 Smart Cam
Lifters may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

 This Executive Order is granted based on the following submitted emissions test data on a 1994
 5.7L Chevrolet Suburban equipped with the Smart Cam Lifters.

 % Change          20%     11.3% 0.0%

  did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the baseline emissions by more than the allowed
_ limits of 10 percent or 0.1 grams per mile on hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx),
  and 15 percent or 1.0 grams per mile carbon monoxide (CO) as specified in the "Procedures for

 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.
