                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—550—15

                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                     of the California Vehicle Code

                               Advanced Flow Engineering, Inc.
                                     Air Intake 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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Air Intake Systems,
manufactured and marketed by Advanced Flow Engineering, Inc., 252 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 2005 to 2014 model year General Motors and Ford
vehicles, as listed in Exhibit A.

The Air Intake Systems consists of the following main components: Open or closed
element air filter, air intake tubing from throttle body to filter, and all necessary mounting
hardware for proper installation. The stock manifold air pressure sensor is retained in its
stock location and orientation. Installation of the Air Intake System requires the
removal of the stock air filter housing and all intake air tubing. If the stock air filter
housing contains the vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions control decal, a replacement
decal must be placed in a similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Air Intake
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 Air Intake 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 exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data, from Quantum
Technologies, Lake Forest, California, on a 2011 model year Ford F—150 (Test Group
BFMXTO03.54EP) certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle
(LEV II ULEV) standards and tested using the Cold Start Federal Test Procedure and the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycle:

Test results showed that the Air Intake System when installed on the vehicle did not cause
exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards during the Cold Start
Federal Test Procedure and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure. This Executive
Order is also based on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1I) testing conducted on the same
test vehicle. The Air Intake System when installed on the test vehicle did not affect the
vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

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 AIR INTAKE
SYSTEMS.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Air Intake 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 Air Intake Systems using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Air Intake 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.

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,
                            day   this of August 2014.
