                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—557

                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                       of the Vehicle Code           —

                                    IGNITION SOLUTIONS
                               Plasma Direct and Plasma Booster

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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Plasma Direct and Plasma
Booster, manufactured and marketed by Ignition Solutions, Silverton Avenue, Suite E, San
Diego, California 92126 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code for the vehicle applications listed in Exhibit A.

The Plasma Direct is a direct reptacement ignition coil. The Plasma Booster is an add—on
spark enhancement device that is installed by attaching one wire to the negative coil terminal
and the other to a ground source. The Plasma Direct and Plasma Booster are sold separately
as an individual device.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Plasma Direct
and Plasma Booster will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those submitted by the device manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Ignition Solutions‘ Plasma Direct and Plasma
Booster advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Plasma Direct and Plasma Booster,
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 Plasma Direct and Plasma Booster using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Plasma Direct and Plasma Booster 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 Plasma
Direct.and Plasma Booster may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.


This exemption is issued based on information supplied by the device manufacturer which
demonstrates that the Plasma Direct and Plasma Booster meet the requirements of
compliance criteria for ignition system components as specified under the "Procedures for
Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts" and therefore, will not increase emissions. This
Executive Order is also based on an On Board Diagnostic It (OBD 1!) testing conducted on a
2001 model year 1.8L Audi TT with the Plasma Direct installed and a 2002 model—year 4.0L
Jeep Wrangler with the Plasma Booster installed. The Plasma Direct and Plasma Booster
when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD II 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.

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 PLASMA DIRECT AND PLASMA BOOSTER.

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, this    [7fl/ day of April 2003.
