The BladeRunner Intercooler is installed in place of the stock intercooler. Installation
consists of the removal of the existing intercooler and replacement with the
BladeRunner Intercooler. The design of the part is for increased charge density through
cooling of the intake air following compression by the turbocharger for the purpose of
increased vehicle performance.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the
BladeRunner Intercooler will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating ·c_onditions of the Blade Ru nner Intercooler, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board , which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle's pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.


Marketing of the BladeRunner Intercooler using any identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of the BladeRunner Intercooler 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
BladeRunner Intercooler may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on engineering evaluation and comparative
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure test and On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) system
test conducted at an independent laboratory using 2008 model—year 8.4L Ford F250
pick—up truck (test group 8FMXAO08.4AGC, LEV1 ULEV).

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 BladeRunner Intercooler 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 and/or that the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE

order, in which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest
