The factory fuel system is modified with an additional fuel pressure regulator that raises fuel rail pressure in proportion to the positive manifold pressure. The factory intake manifold is replaced with a new manifold housing that contains the supercharger and intercooler assembly. The EGR tube inside the manifold is modified to ensure even distribution of gases into each cylinder. The factory electric air injection pump is relocated to the inside fender area. Maximum boost pressure is 7 psi. The C class models receive a voltage step up device for the fuel pump when in the boost mode. A 500 ohm resistor, designed to prevent a lean condition during high RPMs, is installed inline with the output signal of the mass air flow meter.Vehicles which have been certified to a Ultra-Low-Emission Vehicle (ULEV) and/or the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) standards are excluded from this Executive Order.

                The Kieemann Comfort Power Compressor Kit consists of an Autorotor supercharger with a
                pulley diameter of 87mm for the 6 cylinder engine and 75mm for the 8 cylinder engine. The .
                factory fuel system is modified with an additional fuel pressure regulator that raises fuel rail

                replaced with a new manifold housing that contains the supercharger and intercooler
                assembly. The EGR tube inside the manifold is modified to ensure even distribution of gases
                into each cylinder. The factory electric air injection pump is relocated to the inside fender
                area. Maximum boost pressure is 7 psi. The C class models receive a voltage step up device
                for the fuel pump when in the boost mode. A 500 ohm resistor, designed to prevent a lean
                condition during high RPMs, is installed inline with the output signal of the mass air flow meter.


                                                         9.


          This Executive Order shall not apply to any Kieemann USA, Inc.‘s Kleemann Comfort Power
Lenis..




          Compressor Kit advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior
          to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

          This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Kleemann
          Comfort Power Compressor Kit 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 Kleemann Comfort Power
          Compressor 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.

          Marketing of the Kleemann Comfort Power Compressor Kit using any identification other than
          that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Kleemann Comfort Power Compressor
          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. Exemption of the Kleemann Comfort
          Power Compressor Kit 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 Kileemann
          Comfort Power Compressor Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
          vehicle manufacturer.

          Kleemann USA, Inc. previously submitted emissions test data (Executive Order D—528) which
          showed that the Kleemann Comfort Power Compressor Kit did not adversely affect tailpipe
          emissions during a Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. A 2000 Mercedes—Benz E320
          with a 3.2L engine, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission standards was
          used as the test vehicle. Results of the emission testing with the Kleemann Comfort Power
          Compressor Kit installed are shown below.

                            NMOG CO         NOx      HCHO
          Standards         0.075 3.4       0.2      0.015
          Device w/idf      0.026 0.4       0.       0.001

          Test results showed that the Kleemann Comfort Power Compressor Kit did not cause exhaust
          emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards with deterioration factors applied. This
          Executive Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) test conducted on the
          same vehicle. Test data showed that the Kleemann Comfort Power Compressor Kit when
          installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD 11 monitoring.

          The ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Kleemann Comfort
          Power Compressor Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating
          under conditions outside the parameters of the Cold Start 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.
|artike.




           If such test results demonstrate that the Kleemann Comfort Power Compressor Kit 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 Kileemann Comfort
           Power Compressor Kit will affect the durability of the emission control system, Kleemann USA,
           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.

           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 KLEEMANN USA, INCS
           KLEEMANN COMFORT POWER COMPRESSOR 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 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 &fl day of March 2003.
