                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—541—1

                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 2715
                                      of the Vehicle Code         '

                                        Edge Products
                                       Power Edge Juice


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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Power Edge Juice
manufactured and marketed by Edge Products, 5150 Washington, Ogden, Utah 84405 has
been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system
and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 2003
and older model year General Motors trucks equipped with the 6.6L turbo diesel engine.

The Power Edge Juice device consists of an electronic module and a wiring harness. The
Power Edge Juice has four levels of performance, normal to tow/haul. —

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Power Edge
Juice 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 Power Edge Juice, 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 Power Edge Juice using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Power Edge Juice 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 Power Edge Juice 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
Power Edge Juice may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.


                                                2.


This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that
the Power Edge Juice, set to the highest performance level, did not adversely affect tailpipe —
emissions during a Cold—Start 505 Federal Test Procedure. A 2003 model year General
Motors HD3500 with a 6.6L diesel engine, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
emission standards was used as the test vehicle.

Device            0.12     0.9    5.7        0.039                2.9%

% Change         —20%    —10%      0%        —17%

Exhaust emissions during comparative Cold Start 505 Federal Test Procedure showed that
the Power Edge Juice did not cause emissions to exceed baseline by more than the allowed
limits of 10 percent or 0.10 grams per mile on hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx),
15 percent or 1.0 grams per mile carbon monoxide (CO), and 15 percent or 0.03 grams per
mile on Particulate Matter (PM) as specified in the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and
Modified Parts." Opacity test results were also below their applicable emission standard. This
Executive Order is also based on an On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the
same vehicle. Test data showed that the Power Edge Juice when installed on the vehicle did
not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring. The completion of the misfire
readiness monitor was never documented with a scan tool download, but did set to complete
according to the testing laboratory.                                                          |

The ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Power Edge Juice may
adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
parameters of the Cold—Start 505 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 Power Edge Juice adversely affect emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as
those conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold Start 505 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 Power Edge Juice will affect the durability of the emission control system,
Edge Products 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.
