                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—550—17

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the California Vehicle Code

                             Advanced Flow Engineering, Inc.
                                      Silver Bullet

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code (VC); 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 Silver Bullet,
manufactured by Taylor Cable Products, Inc., 301 High Grove Road, Grandview,
Missouri 64030, and marketed by Advanced Flow Engineering, Inc. (AFE) of 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 vehicles
listed in Exhibit A.

The Silver Bullet is an aluminum spacer plate, approximately one inch thick with
machined helical grooves on the inside ports, and is installed adjacent to the vehicle‘s
throttle body or carburetor. No changes are made to any other components of the stock
engine, including engine calibration.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Silver Bullet
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 Silver Bullet, as exempt by
the ARB, 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 Silver Bullet 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 Silver Bullet using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Silver Bullet for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from
the ARB.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Silver Bullet may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on a prior evaluation which determined that the
Silver Bullet would not cause an adverse effect on emissions of the selected vehicles
(D—676—4), nor does it affect the vehicles‘ ability to perform On—Board Diagnostic II
system monitoring.

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 Silver Bullet will affect the durability of emission control systems, AFE
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.


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

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    ZO         day of September 2016.
