                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code


                                      MARKALL, INC.
                         Supercharger System, HPT320K & HPT430K


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 Supercharger System,
manufactured and marketed by Markall, Inc., 3203 W. Pendleton Avenue, Santa Ana,
California 92704 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 2000 model—year and older Mercedes—Benz vehicles equipped with either a
3.2, 4.3, or 5.0 liter fuel injected engine. Kit HPT320K is applicable to the 3.2 liter engine and
kit HPT430K is applicable to the 4.3 and 5.0 liter engines.

The Supercharger System includes the following main parts: Eaton supercharger with a
maximum boost of 4 psi., 3" diameter supercharger pulley, 6" diameter crankshaft pulley,
intake manifold, air intake tubing, and an open element K&N air cleaner. The throttle body
and mass airflow sensor are relocated to the inlet housing of the supercharger, a new wiring
harness extension using factory connectors is included as part of the relocation of these
components. The manufacturer recommends 92 octane fuel.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Supercharger System 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 Supercharger System, as exempt
by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.


MARKALL, INC.                                                            Executive Order D—507
Supercharger System                                                      (Page 2 of 3)




Marketing of the Supercharger System using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order, or marketing of the Supercharger System 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 Supercharger System 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
Supercharger System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that
the Supercharger System did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during the Cold Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Testing was conducted on a 2000 model—year 4.3L
Mercedes E430 that is certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standard.
Emission levels of the modified vehicle met the applicable emission standards. The following
test results are in grams per mile with the deterioration factors applied:

                   NMOG CO          NOx   HCHO
Standard           0.075 3.4       0.2    0.015
Device w/dfs       0.021 0.3       0.1    0.0004

This Executive Order is also based on On Board Diagnostic I! (OBD II) testing conducted on
the same vehicle. Test data showed that the Supercharger System when installed on the
vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Markall, Inc.‘s
Supercharger System 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 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 will affect the durability of the emission
control systems, Markall, Inc. 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 of Title 13, California Code of Regulations,
Section 2222, et seq.


MARKALL, INC.                                                   a       Executive Order D—507

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 MARKALL, INC—‘S
SUPERCHARGER SYSTEM.

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.
