marketed by Subaru of America, Inc., and produced by Dee Zee Manufacturing of 1572
N.E. 58th Avenue, Des Moines, lowa 50313, has been found not to reduce the

exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the vehicles
listed below:

The SPT Air Intakes include the following main components: open—element reusable air
filter, intake system tubing, assorted brackets, and hardware.

  This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the SPT Air
. Intakes will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the SPT Air Intakes, 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 SPT Air Intakes 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 SPT Air Intakes using any identification other than that shown in this
 Executive Order or marketing of the SPT Air Intakes for an application other than those


                                            12.


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 SPT
Air Intakes units 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, and an examination
of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD !1) system. A 2006 Subaru Impreza WRX with a 2.5
liter turbocharged engine (6FJXVO2.5PRA, LEV—II LEV) was used for the evaluation of
the SPT Air Intake. Results from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing
Laboratories, of Mesa Arizona, are shown below (in grams per mile):

                     50k        NMOG         CO        NOx        HCHO
    Emission Level (DF applied) 0.011         1.009     0.018      0.0003
                     STD        0.075        3.4       0.05        0.015

                     120k       NMOG          CO       NOx        HCHO
    Emission Level (DF applied) 0.013         1.266     0.023      0.0004
                      STD       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 SPT Air Intakes
will not affect OBD I! operation.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reason to suspect that the SPT Air
Intakes will affect the durability of emission control systems, Subaru of America, Inc.,
and Dee Zee Manufacturing 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 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.

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 SUBARU OF
AMERICA, INC., SPT AIR INTAKES.

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.
