                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—526—8

                              Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                    Volant Performance
                                     Cool Air Intake Kits

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 Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Volant Performance
Cool Air Intake Kits, produced and marketed by TMG Performance Products LLC,
140 Blaze Industrial Parkway, Berea, Ohio 44017, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems, and therefore, is
exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on
those vehicles listed in the attached Exhibit A.

The Volant Performance Cool Air Intake Kits include the following main components:
open—element air filter, filter enclosure (as applicable), intake system tubing, crankcase
ventilation hose (as applicable), assorted brackets, and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Volant
Performance Cool Air Intake Kits do not recommend tuning the vehicles to
specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Volant Performance Cool Air
Intake Kits, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicles‘ emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive

Marketing of the Volant Performance Cool Air Intake Kits using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this
Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board. Exemption of the Volant Performance Cool Air Intake Kits shall not
be construed as exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the
system as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Volant Performance Cool Air Intake Kits
 advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or
 concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Volant Performance Cool Air Intake Kits may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure
tests, Supplemental Federal Test Procedure USO6 tests, and On—Board Diagnostic II
System tests conducted by Volant Performance with its Cool Air Intake Kits (Executive
Orders D—526, D—526—1 and D—526—4).

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 California Code of Regulations,
Title 13, Section 2222, et seq. Further, if test results or other evidence provides the Air
Resources Board with reason to suspect that the Volant Performance Cool Air Intake
Kits will affect the durability of emission control systems, Volant Performance 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 parts demonstrate
adequate durability.


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

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
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 Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     I [     day of February 2016.

                Emissions Compliance, Automotive Regulations and Science Division
