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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Induction Coils
manufactured and marketed by Pertronix, Inc., 1268 E. Edna Place, Covina,
California 91723 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 1995 and older vehicles
using a distributor type ignition system.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for
the Induction Coil will not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications
different from those of the vehicle‘s manufacturer.

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

THIS EXECUfiVE 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 PERTRONIX‘S INDUCTION COIL.

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 after hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte,   California,   this 67’/_day of October 1996.
