IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Flame—Thrower Billet
Distributor manufactured and marketed by Pertronix, Inc., 440 E. Arrow Highway, San
Dimas, California 91773 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 all 1989 and older vehicles equ1pped with a General Motors
V8 engine.

The Flame—Thrower Billet Distributor is comprised of a housing, reluctor wheel, mechanical
advance assembly, vacuum advance assembly, sensor assembly, electronic module, rotor,
cap, and an external coil.

This exemption is issued based on information supplied by the device manufacturer which
demonstrates that the Flame—Thrower Billet Distributor meets the compliance criteria for
ignition distributors as specified under "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified
Parts" and, therefore, will not increase emissions.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Flame—Thrower
Billet Distributor will not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those
of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Flame—Thrower Billet Distributor,
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 Flame—Thrower Billet Distributor using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Flame—Thrower Billet Distributor for an
application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

Exemption of the Flame—Thrower Billet Distributor shall not be construed as exemption to
sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Flame—
Thrower Billet Distributor may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.
