                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—590—12

                      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 (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code (VC); 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 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 the attached Exhibit A.

The Cold Air Intake Kit includes the following main components: open—element air filter
(either oiled reusable or dry disposable), air filter box/housing, intake system tubing,
crankcase ventilation hose (as applicable), assorted brackets, and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that 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 ARB, 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 Air 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 ARB.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Cold
Air Intake Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Federal Test Procedure (FTP), Supplemental Federal Test
Procedure (SFTP), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system.
A 2015 Ford F150 equipped with a 2.7 liter turbocharged engine (test group
FFMXTO2.73JJ, LEV—III ULEV7O) was used for the evaluation of the Cold Air Intake Kit.
Results from emissions testing conducted at the SEMA Emissions Compliance Center
of Diamond Bar, California, are shown below (in grams per mile):

2015 Ford F150 2.7L turbocharged

     FTP                              NMOG + NOx              cCO
                    150,000 mi.
                 Emission Level            0.070               0.5
                   (DF applied)

                            STD            0.070               17

    SFTP Composite
                 150,000 mi.
              Emission Level              0.050               0.4
                (DF applied)
                      STD (BIN)           0.100               4.2

Emission test results in the modified configuration met the applicable certification
standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Cold Air Intake Kit does not
affect OBD II operation. Therefore, based on the test results, the staff concludes that
the Cold Air Intake Kit meets the criteria for exempting general criteria parts.

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. Further, if test results or other 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, in fact, affected and/or
that the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.


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

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 Executive
Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
for revocation exist.
