                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—550—25

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                               of the California Vehicle Code

                         Advanced Flow Engineering, Inc.
               Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 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 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 Momentum GT and
Magnum Force Stage 2 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 of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for
the 2004 to 2017 Nissan vehicles listed in Exhibit A.

The Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 intake systems replace the stock air
filter housing and tubing, and consist of the following main components: open element
air filter, air intake tubing from the throttle body to the filter, air filter housing, and all
necessary mounting hardware for proper installation. The PCV and crankcase breather
hose may be replaced or modified with an SAE30RT rated hose or an equivalent Nissan
replacement. No changes are made to any other components of the stock engine,
including engine calibration.

This Executive Orderis valid provided that installation instructions for the Momentum
GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 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 Momentum GT and
Magnum Force Stage 2 intake systems, 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 Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2
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 Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 intake systems using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the
Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 intake systems 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
Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 intake 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 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental Federal Test Procedure
(USO6), and an On—Board Diagnostics II examination. Results from emissions testing,
conducted on a 2014 Nissan Frontier (ENSXT04.0G6A, LEV II ULEV) modified with the
Momentum GT intake system, at SEMA Emissions Compliance Center in Diamond Bar,
CA are shown below (in grams per mile):

Emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards and an examination of the OBD II system showed the Momentum
GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 intake systems do not affect OBD II operation.
Therefore, based on the test results and a prior evaluation (D—550—16), the staff
concludes that the Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 intake systems meet the
criteria for exemption.

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 Momentum GT and Magnum Force Stage 2 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 part demonstrates adequate durability.
