                                        EXECUTIVE ORDER D—525

                               Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                           of the California Vehicle Code

                                    Airforce One Performance Industries
                                     Airforce One Performance Intakes

        — 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;

         [T IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Airforce One
         Performance Intakes, produced and marketed by Airforce One Performance Industries,
         7720 W. Sierra Hwy, Agua Dulce, California 91350, have been found not to reduce the
         effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, are
         exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the vehicles
         listed in Exhibit A.                                                 ‘

         The Airforce One Performance Intakes include the following main components: open—
         element reusable air filter, Intakes system tubing, crankease ventilation hose (as
         applicable, which may be silicone, and a color other than black), assorted brackets, and
         hardware.

         This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Airforce
         One Performance Intakes 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 Airforce One Performance
         Intakes, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
mae s



         of the vehicte‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

         This Executive Order shall not apply to any Airforce One Performance Intakes
         advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or
         concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

         Marketing of the Airforce One Performance Intakes using any identification other than
         that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Airforce One Performance
         Intakes for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
         prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.


 This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
 Airforce One Performance Intakes 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 a 2000 model—year California—certified Ford F—150 (engine family
  YFMXAO5.4HGC, LEV, MDV2) 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 Airforce One Performance Intakes 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 Airforce One Performance Intakes 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
  Airforce One Performance Intakes will affect the durability of emission control systems,
  Airforce One Performance Industries 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.

 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 AIRFORCE ONE
 PERFORMANCE INDUSTRIES® AIRFORCE ONE PERFORMANCE INTAKES.

 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.

                                EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: Airforce One Performance Industries

Name of Device: Airforce One Performance Intakes

Background:
       Airforce One Performance Industries of 7720 W. Sierra Hwy, Agua Dulce,
California 91350, has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of
the California Vehicle Code (VC) for the Airforce One Performance Intakes designed for
the vehicles listed in Exhibit A. The vehicle application includes those certified to the
Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards.

| Recommendation:             .
        Grant exemption to Airforce One Performance Industries as requested and issue
  Executive Order D—525.

 Device Description:
       Airforce One Performance Industries‘ Airforce One Performance Intakes are air
intake systems specifically designed for installation on the vehicles listed in Exhibit A.
The installation of each system does not require any major modifications to the stock
motor, except for the modification of the factory air intake system to accommodate the
Airforce One Performance Intakes air filter and plumbing. On some models, relocation
of the crankcase ventilation hose is required. In these cases, the Airforce One
Performance Intakes are supplied with crankcease ventilation hoses (which may be
silicone, and a color other than black). The filter element used in the Airforce One
 Performance Intakes is an open—element, reusable cotton gauze unit, designed to be
less restrictive than the stock air filter.
         The Airforce One Performance Intakes are intended to increase the vehicles‘
volumetric efficiency and power output at particular engine loads and throttle openings.
At heavy engine loads and increased throttle openings, the airflow into the engine is
increased because the Airforce One Performance Intakes are less restrictive than stock
air filters. This allows more air to enter the engine, which is compensated by the vehicle
engine control module with an increase in fuel flow, resulting in a higher power output.
However, the fuel enrichment is limited and the typical net effect is an overall leaning
effect of the fuel mixture. The leaning effect is manifested in a marginal, but
measurable, NOx increase. Worst—case vehicles are examined for their certification
emissions. In cases where certification emissions have values low enough to
accommodate any small increase in emissions (in this case NOx), emission testing is
deemed not required.

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
        A 2000 model—year California—certified Ford F—150 (engine family
YFMXAO5.A4HGC) was used for the evaluation of the Airforce One Performance Intake.
The test vehicle was certified to the Medium—Duty Vehicle Low—Emission Vehicle
{MDV2, LEV) standards and was equipped with an enhanced evaporative system.
Testing consisted of one CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) in the modified
configuration (Airforce One Performance Intakes installed) to set all On—Board
Diagnostics (OBD) It readiness indicators. Testing was conducted at Automotive
Testing and Development Services. No emissions measurement was required since
                                             1


similar systems have been tested previously and have shown to marginally increase the
NOx when tested in accordance with the CVS—75 FTP. This marginal increase in NOx
is due to a leaning effect of the less restrictive Intakes system. Since the affected
vehicles have certification values that are considerably below the standards, they can
accommodate any small increase in NOx emissions.
        Based on engineering evaluation and the OBD—II test results, the staff concludes
that the Airforce One Performance Industries‘ Airforce One Performance Intakes meets
the requirements for a VC 27156 exemption for the vehicles listed in Exhibit A.
