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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the DigitalHP Ignition Box,
manufactured and marketed by Pertronix, LLC (Pertronix), 440 East Arrow Highway, San
Dimas, California 91773, 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 1995 and older model year, non OBD II equipped vehicles.

The DigitalHP Ignition Box is designed to provide the following main capabilities, higher
spark energy, multi—spark, and rev limiter. Installation is between stock single coil and
distributor. No other modifications are required for proper installation.

This Executive Orderis valid provided that the installation instructions for the DigitalHP
Ignition Box 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 DigitalHP Ignition Box, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This exemption is issued based on information supplied by the device manufacturer which
demonstrates that the DigitalHP Ignition Box met the requirements of compliance criteria
for DigitalHP Ignition Box as specified under the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and
Modified Parts" and therefore, will not increase emissions.

The Air Resources Board 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.

Marketing of the DigitalHP Ignition Box using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the DigitalHP Ignition Box 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
DigitalHP Ignition Box may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

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 day of April 2017.
