                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—544—2

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the California Vehicle Code

                                   GCA Industries, LLC
                                True Flow Air Intake System


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 True Flow Air Intake
System, manufactured and marketed by GCA Industries, LLC, 21602 N. 2"" Avenue,
Suite 1, Phoenix, AZ 85027, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the vehicles listed in the Exhibit A.

The True Flow Air Intake System consists of a metal air intake tube and a reusable
foam air filter. The foam air filter is a direct replacement for the stock paper air filter,
so the stock air filter housing is retained. The supplied couplers and vacuum hoses
are made out of silicone.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the True Flow
Air Intake System 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 True Flow Air Intake
System, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
of the vehicte‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

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


                                            — 3.



This Executive Order is granted based on a prior engineering evaluation which
determined that the True Flow Air Intake System would not have an adverse effect on
emissions of selected vehicles (Executive Orders D—544 and D—544—1), and does not
affect the vehicle‘ s ability to perform its On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD !I) system
monitoring. The same effect on emissions and OBD II system monitoring is expected
from the use of the True Flow Air Intake System for the vehicles listed in this Executive
Order.

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 TRUE FLOW
AIR INTAKE SYSTEM.

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     2 9       day of September 2006
