                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—550

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                                Advanced Flow Engineering
                               Magnum Force Intake System

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and              f

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 Magnum Force Intake
System, produced and marketed by Advanced Flow Engineering, 191 Granite Street,
Corona, California 92879, 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 Exhibit A.

The Magnum Force Intake System includes the following main components: open—
element cotton gauzé air filter, intake system tubing, crankcase ventilation hose (as
applicable, which may be silicone, and a color other than black), assorted brackets, and
hardware.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Advanced Flow Engineering Magnum Force
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 Advanced Flow Engineering Magnum Force Intake System using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the
Advanced Flow Engineering Magnum Force Intake System for an application other than
those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained
fromthe Air Resources Board.


  This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
  Advanced Flow Engineering Magnum Force Intake Systems may have on any warranty
  either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

  This Executive Order is granted based on an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
  {(OBD—I!I) system of a 2002 model—year GM Suburban {engine family 2GMXAO05.3185,
  MDV3, ULEV) in the modified configuration, and an engineering evaluation of the
  emissions impact of the device if measured using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
  Procedure.

  If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Magnum Force Intake
  System will affect the durability of emission control systems, Advanced Flow
  Engineering 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 part demonstrates adequate durability.

  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 ADVANCED FLOW
 ENGINEERING‘S MAGNUM FORCE 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 hefd 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   1Z**         day of December, 2002.

                                 EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: Advanced Flow Engineering

Name of Device: Magnum Force Intake System

Background:
        Advanced Flow Engineering of 191 Granite Street, Corona, California 92879, has
applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle
Code (VC) for the Advanced Flow Engineering Magnum Force Intake System designed
for the vehicles listed in Exhibit A. The vehicle application includes those certified to the
Ultra—Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) standards.

Recommendation:
      Grant exemption to Advanced Flow Engineering as requested and issue
Executive Order D—550.

Device Description:
        Advanced Flow Engineering‘s Magnum Force Intake Systems are air intake
systems specifically designed for installation on the vehicles listed in Exhibit A. The
installation of the kit does not require any major modifications to the stock motor, except
for the modification of the factory air intake system to accommodate the Magnum Force
Intake System air filter and plumbing. On some models, relocation of the crankcase
ventilation hose is required. In these cases, the Magnum Force Intake Systems are
supplied with crankcase ventilation hoses (as applicable, which may be silicone, and a
color other than black). The filter element used in the Magnum Force Intake Systems is
an open—element, cotton gauze unit, designed to be less restrictive than the stock air
filter.
       The Magnum Force Intake Systems are intended to increase the vehicles‘
volumetric efficiency and power output at particular engine loads and throttle openings.
At heavy engine loads and increased throttle openings, the airflow into the engine is
increased because the Magnum Force Intake Systems are less restrictive than stock air
filters. This allows more air to enter the engine, which is compensated by the vehicle
engine control module with an increase in fuel flow, resulting in a higher power output.
However, the fuel enrichment is limited and the typical net effect is an overall leaning
effect of the fuel mixture. The leaning effect is manifested in a marginal, but
measurable, NOx increase. Worst—case vehicles are examined for their certification
emissions. in cases where certification emissions have values low enough to
accommodate any small increase in emissions (in this case NOx), emission testing is
deemed not required.

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:

        A 2002 model—year GM Suburban (engine family 2GMXA05.3185, MDV3,
ULEV) was used for the evaluation of the Advanced Flow Engineering Magnum Force
Intake System. The test vehicle was certified to the Medium—Duty Vehicle 3 Ultra—Low
Emission Vehicle (MDV3, ULEV}) standards, and was equipped with an enhanced
evaporative system. Testing consisted of one CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) in
the modified configuration (Magnum Force Intake System installed) to set all On—Board
Diagnostics (OBD) II readiness indicators. Testing was conducted at California
                                           1


Analytical Instruments. No emissions measurement was required since similar systems
have been tested previously and have shown to marginally increase the NOx when
tested in accordance with the CVS—75 FTP. This marginal increase in NOx is due to a
leaning effect of the less restrictive intake system. Since the affected vehicles have
certification values that are considerably below the standards, they can accommodate
any small increase in NOx emissions.
      Based on the test results and examination of the OBD II system, the staff
concludes that Advanced Flow Engineering‘s Magnum Force Intake Systems meet the
requirements for a VC 27156 exemption for the vehicles listed in Exhibit A.
