                                               _2_




This Executive Order shall not apply to any Evergreen Performance‘s AirAid Intake System
advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the AirAid Intake 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.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation which determined that
the AirAid Intake System will have no adverse impact on evaporative or tailpipe emissions if
tested in accordance with the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. Furthermore,
Evergreen Performance, Inc. demonstrated to ARB staff, using a 2000 4.7L Dodge Dakota,
2000 5.3L GM truck, and a 2001 5.4L Ford F—150, that the AirAid Intake System do not affect
che ability of the vehicle‘s OBD II system to monitor various emission related functions.
However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the AirAid Intake
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 AirAid Intake System 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 CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of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 AirAid Intake System will affect the durability of the
emission control system, Evergreen Performance 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.

       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 EVERGREEN
       PERFORMANCE‘S AIRAID INTAKE 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 is made after the hearing that
           grounds for revocation exist.

           Executed at El Monte, California, this   244 day of July 2001.

                                   EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: Evergreen Performance

Jame of Device: AirAid Intake System

Background:
        Evergreen Performance of 14840 N. 74th St., Scottsdale, Arizona 85260, has applied
for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code (VC)
for the AirAid Intake System designed for 1988 through 2001 Chrysler, Ford, and General
Motors vehicles. The vehicle application excludes those certified to the Supplemental
Federal Test Procedures (SFTP) standards.

Recommendation:
         Grant exemption to Evergreen Performance as requested and issue Exectutive Order
D—520.

Device Description:                                                         |
         Evergreen Performance‘s AirAid Intake System is an air intake system specifically
designed for installation on 1988 through 2001 Chrysler, Ford, and General Motors vehicles.
The installation of the kit does not require any major modifications to the stock motor, except
for the modification of the factory air intake system to accommodate the AirAid Intake
System‘s air filter and plumbing. The filter element used in the AirAid Intake System is an
open—element, reusable cotton gauze unit, designed to be less restrictive than the stock air
filter.
         The AirAid Intake System is intended to increase the vehicle‘s volumetric efficiency
and power output at particular engine loads and throttle openings. At heavy engine loads
 nd increased throttle openings, the airflow into the engine is increased because the AirAid
intake System is less restrictive than stock air filter. This allows more air to enter the engine,
which is compensated by the engine control module with an increase in fuel flow, resulting in
a higher power output.

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
         A 2000 4.7L Dodge Dakota, 2000 5.3L GM truck, and a 2001 5.4L Ford F—150, was
used for the evaluation of the AirAid Intake System. The test vehicles were certified to the
Low—Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standards and was equipped with an enhanced
evaporative system. Testing was conducted by staff at the ARB. Testing consisted of on
road driving in the modified configuration to set all On—Board Diagnostics (OBD) II readiness
indicators. No emission measurements were required since similar systems have been
tested and have shown to have only a slight influence on emissions, usually a measurable
(but not significant) increase in NOx due to a leaning effect of the less restrictive intake
system.
      Based on engineering evaluation and the OBD—II test results, the staff concludes that
Evergreen Performance‘s AirAid Intake System meets the requirements for a VC 27156
exemption.
