air filter, intake system tubing, assorted brackets, and. hardware

This Exeoutlve Order is valid prowded that the installation instructions for the SPT Air
Intakes 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 SPT Air Intakes, as exempt
 by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the veh(cles
 pollution control system shall invalidate this Executlve Order.

 Marketing of the SPT Air lntakes using any identification other than that shown is this
 Executive Order or marketing of the SPT Air Intakes 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 an opinion as to the effect the use of the SPT
 Air Intake unit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

  This Executive Order is granted based on previously submitted emissions 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 II) system. A 2006 Subaru
  Impreza WRX with a 2.5 liter turbocharged engine (6FJXVO2.5PRA, LEV—I[ LEV) was .
  used for the evaluation of the SPT Air Intake. Results from emissions testing
. conducted at Automotive Testing Laboratorles of Mesa, Arlzona are shown below (in
 grams per mile}):

  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 II 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 systemsare not, in fact, affected and/or that the
 add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

 The Alr Resources Board reserves the rlghtin 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.
