                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—500
                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     of the Vehicle Code


                          VAN AAKEN DEVELOPMENTS, LTD.
                      CANBUS PUMP CONTROLLER, MODEL # R—12

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 CanBus Pump Controller,
Model # R—12, manufactured and marketed by Van Aaken Developments, Ltd., Telford
Avenue, Crowthorne, Berkshire RG45 6XA, United Kingdom 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 1998 1/2 and 1999 Dodge
Ram Trucks equipped with the 5.9L ISB Cummins Turbo Diesel engine.

The CanBus Pump Controller includes one electronic module. The module is installed in the
engine compartment in line between the electrical connections on diesel injection pump with
no user adjustments. The CGanBus Pump Controller increases engine torque by increasing
the fuel flow rate during medium and high load engine conditions.

This Executive Order is valid provided the installation instructions for the CanBus Pump
Controller will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any CanBus Pump Controller advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the CanBus Pump Controller, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

CanBus Pump Controller                                         (Page 2 of 3)




Marketing of the CanBus Pump Controller using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the CanBus Pump Controller 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 CanBus Pump Controller 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 CanBus
Pump Controller 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:

                  HC       CO     NOX        PM                Opacity
Stock             0.20      1.7    10.0     0.187 .           4.6%
Device            0.21     1.9    10.6      0.068             18.3%
Difference        0.01     0.2     0.6     —0.119
% Change          5.0%     12%      6%      —64%

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions during comparative Cold Start 505 Federal Test
Procedure with the CanBus Pump Controller, Model # R—12 installed on the vehicle 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), 15
percent or 1.0 grams per mile carbon monoxide (CO), and 15 percent or 0.03 grams per mile
on Particulates as specified in the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts."

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Van Aaken
Developments, Ltd.‘s CanBus Pump Controller 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 turbocharger
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 turbocharger will affect the durability of the emission control systems, Van Aaken
Developments, Ltd. 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 ofTitle 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 VAN AAKEN
DEVELOPMENTS, LTD.‘S CANBUS PUMP CONTROLLER.

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.
