                          "~    EXECUTIVE ORDER D—575

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                               East Coast Induction Systems
                                Evolution Air Intake System

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 Evolution Air Intake
System, produced and marketed by East Coast Induction Systems of 236 S. 9°" Street,
Lindenhurst, NY 11757, 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 BMW vehicles listed in the
attached Exhibit A.

The Evolution Air Intake System includes the following main components: open—
element reusable air filter, heat shields (as applicable), intake system tubing, crankcase
ventilation hose (as applicable, which may be silicone, and a color other than black),
assorted brackets, and hardware.

This Executive Orderis valid provided that the installation instructions for the Evolution
Air Intake System 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 Evolution Air Intake System,
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 Executive Order shall not apply to any Evolution Air Intake System advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the Evolution Air Intake System using any identification other than that          =
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Evolution Air Intake System 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
Evolution Air Intake System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.
                                *

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (USO6), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II
(OBD II) system. A 2003 BMW 3251 was used for the evaluation of the Evolution Air
Intake System. Results from emissions testing conducted at Roush Industries, of
Livonia, Michigan, are shown below (in grams per mile):

   120 k Standard       0.090       4.2       0.07      0.018

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Evolution Air
Intake System does not affect OBD II operation.

If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Evolution Air Intake
System will affect the durability of emission control systems, East Coast Induction
Systems 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 THE EVOLUTION
AIR INTAKE SYSTEM.

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.
