                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—573—1

                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the California Vehicle Code

                                       Tii Trading Co.
                                  Tiico Engine Conversion

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Sectlon 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 Tiico Engine Conversion,
produced and marketed by Tii Trading Co., 3031 Alhambra Drive, Suite 202, Cameron Air
Center, Cameron Park, California 95682, 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 the 1983 through 1991 model year
VW Vanagons.

The Tiico Engine Conversion includes the following main components: a South African
rebuilt engine equivalent to a California certified 1991 Audi 80/90 2.0 liter 4—cylinder
engine with a Golf/Jetta intake manifold (p/n 037 133 201AP) to allow room for installation
in the Vanagon engine compartment. The ECU utilized is a stock California 1991 Audi
80/90 unit (p/n 893 907 404). The Tiico Engine Conversion must interface with the stock
VW Vanagon evaporative emission control system. A closed element air cleaneris
supplied, and brackets and hardware necessary for installation of the engine are
included. The original VW Vanagon catalytic converter and heated oxygen sensor are
retained. On VW Vanagons not equipped with a check engine light on the dash, a light
must be installed and wired to the new ECU.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Tiico Engine
Conversion will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Tiico Engine Conversion, 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 Tii Trading Co. Tiico Engine Conversion using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Tiico Engine Conversion for
an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless
prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.


                                             7.



This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Tiico
Engine Conversions may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted test data which showed
that installation of the Tiico Engine Conversion on 1983 through 1991 model year VW
Vanagon will have no adverse effect on emissions (Executive Order D—573).

If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Tiico Engine Conversion will
affect the durability of emission control systems, Tii Trading Co. 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.                                                        ~

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.                                                                          ‘

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 T TRADING CO—S >
THCO ENGINE CONVERSION.

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   20 es _ day of May 2004.
