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 Kleemann 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 regulatorthat 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 infection pump is relocated to the inside fender
 area. Maximum boost pressure is 7 psi. The C class models receive a voitage 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.


                                               «3.


This Executive Order shall not apply to any Kleemann USA, Inc.‘s Kleemann Comfort Power
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 Kleemann
Comfort Power Compressor Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

The Executive Order is issued based on 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 Kieemann Comfort Power Compressor Kit installed are shown below.

                  NMOG CO          NOx    HCHO
Standards         0.075    3.4     0.2    0.015
Device w/df       0.026    0.4    0.1     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 I1 (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 II 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.

                                                —3.


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 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), thisExecutive 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 Kleemann 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 hereinto 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, INC.‘S
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 _/ ZT# day of June 2003.
