                                       State of California

                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D-550-1

                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     of the California Vehicle Code

                                  Advanced Flow Engineering
                                Magnum Force Air lntake Systems

    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 Magnum Force Air
    lntake Systems, produced and marketed by Advanced Flow Engineering of 191 Granite
    Street, Corona, Califomia 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 the attached

a   Exhibit A.

    The Magnum Force Air lntake Systems include the following main components: open-
    element reusable air filter, intake system tubing, assorted brackets, and hardware.

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


This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP), the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP US06), and an examination of the On-
Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system. A 2003 BMW 3251 (3BMXV03.OUL2, LEV2 ULEV)
was used for the evaluation of the Magnum Force Air lntake Systems. Results from
emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and Development Services are
shown below (in grams per mile):

     F-TP             50k       NMOG        CO        NOx       HCHO
                Emission Level 0.024        0.859     0.013      *
                (w. DF applied)
                      STD       0.040       1.7        0.05      0.008

                     100k       NMOG        CO        NOx       HCHO
                Emission Level 0.027        0.945     0.015      *
                (w. DF applied)
                      STD       0.055       2.1        0.07      0.011

     US06                      NMHC + NOx           CO
                Measured         0.036              0.64
                Standard         0.14               8.0

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Magnum Force
Air lntake Systems does not affect OBD II operation. Therefore, based on the test
results, the staff concludes that the Magnum Force Air lntake Systems meets the
criteria for exempting general criteria parts.

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. Further, if test results or other evidence provides the
ARB with reason to suspect that the Magnum Force Air lntake Systems 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 andlor that the add-on or modified part demonstrates adequate
durability.

THIS EXECU-TIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CER'TIFICATION,
ACCREDITA1-ION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPI-ICANT CONCERNING
ANTI-POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF 'THE ADVANCED
FLOW ENGINEERING MAGNUM FORCE AIR INTAKE SYSTEMS.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Reso~~rces    Board", may be made
with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written
cornmur~ication.
