                                 AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—526—1

                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the California Vehicle Code

                                     Volant Performance
                                      Cool Air Intake Kit

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicie Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vesfed in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516
of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Cool Air Intake Kit,
manufactured and marketed by Volant Performance, 8759 Lion Street, Rancho
Cucamonga, California, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
vehicle poliution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1996 through 2007 model year General Motors trucks as
listed in Exhibit A.

Volant‘s Cool Air Intake Kit includes the following main components: open—element
reusable air filter, filter enclosure (as applicable), intake system tubing, crankcase 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
Cool Air Intake Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those submitted by the device manufacturer.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Cool Air Intake Kit 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 Cool Air Intake Kit using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Cool Air Intake Kit 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 Cool
Air Intake Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.


This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental Federal
Test Procedure (USO6), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11
system. A 2007 model year Chevrolet Tahoe with a 5.3 liter engine (7GMXTOS5.3380,
LEV I} ULEV) was used for the evaluation of the Cool Air Intake Kit. Results from
emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc.,
located in Ontario, California, are shown below (in grams per mile with deterioration factors
applied):
                               CVS—75                                USO6
                        NMOG CO NOx HCHO                  NMHC+NOx           CO
Standards, UL           0.070     2.1  0.04 0.011             0.40           10.5,
Cool Air Intake Kit     0.062     1.1  0.04 0.001             0.03            0.4

The emission test results in the modified configuration were either at or below the
applicable certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Cool Alr
Intake Kit does not affect OBD !I system operation.

The Air Resources Board 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 THE COOL AIR
INTAKE KIT.

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 shalf 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.
