                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                               of the California Vehicle Code

                                        S&B Filters
                                     Cold Air Intake Kit

 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 SeGtion
 39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G-14-012;

 IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Cold Air Intake Kit,
 produced and marketed by S&B Filters of 15461 Slover Avenue, Fontana, California
 92337, 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 vehicles listed in Exhibit A.

 The Cold Air Intake Kit includes the following main components: An open-element air
 filter (either an oiled reusable or a dry disposable), heat shield (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 Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Cold Air
 Intake Kit 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 Cold Air Intake Kit, 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 Cold Air Intake Kit 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 Cold A ir Intake Kit using any identification other than that shown in this
  Executive Order or marketing of the Cold Air Intake Kit 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 Cold Air
Intake Kit units may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on emission tests, in the modified configuration ,
using the Cold-Start Federal Test Procedure and an examination of the On-Board
Diagnostic II (OBD II) system . A 2015 GM 6.6L Silverado 2500 (FGMXD06.6355, LEV-II
ULEV) was used for the evaluation of the Cold Air Intake Kit. Results from emissions
testing conducted by S&B Filters, Inc. with the Cold Air Intake Kit, are shown below (in
grams per mile):

                            2015 GM 6.6L Silverado 2500-4FWD

FTP                 120k        NMHC           co        NOx        PM
               Emission Level   0.109          0.10      0.12      0.013
          (w. OF & OAF applied)
                    STD         0.143          6.4       0.2        0.06

The emission test results, in the modified configuration, were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Cold Air Intake Kit
did not affect OBD II operation.

If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Cold Air Intake Kit will affect
the durability of emission control systems , S&B Filters shall be required to submit durability
data to show that the durability of vehicle emission control systems are not 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 .


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.
