                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—550—23

                               Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                             Advanced Flow Engineering, Inc.
                                 Takeda Intake Systems


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 Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Takeda Intake Systems,
manufactured 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 in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on those vehicles listed
in the attached Exhibit A.

The Takeda Intake Systems may include the following main components: open element
air filter, air intake tubing from the throttle body to the filter, and all necessary mounting
hardware for proper installation. 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 Takeda Intake
Systems do not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of
the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Takeda Intake Systems, as
exempt by the ARB, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicles‘ emission
control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Takeda Intake Systems using any identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order
shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Takeda Intake Systems advertised, offered
for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to
an ultimate purchaser.

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


                                               9.

This Executive Order is granted based on previous emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (USO6), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
(OBD II) system. A 2012 Nissan Altima (LEV—II SULEV) was used for the evaluation of
the Takeda Intake Systems (D—550—16).

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Takeda Intake
System does not affect OBD II operation.

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 California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222,
et seq. Further, if test results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason to
suspect that the Takeda Intake Systems 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 parts demonstrate adequate durability.

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 AFE TAKEDA
INTAKE SYSTEMS.

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 Executive
Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of
intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
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 Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   &AF           day of August 2017.
