                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                               of the California Vehicle Code

                                   Spectre Performance
                                  Cold Air Intake Systems

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 Systems,
produced and marketed by Spectre Performance of 1455 Citrus Street, Riverside,
California 92507, 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 Systems include the following main components: open-element
reusable air filter, intake system tubing, assorted brackets, and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Cold Air
Intake Systems 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 Systems, 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 Systems 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 Systems using any identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of the Cold Air Intake Systems 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 Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

                 Spectre Performance- Cold Air Intake Systems- D-629-11


This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and an examination of the On-
Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system. A 2012 Nissan Altima with a 2.5 liter engine (test
group CNSXV02.585A, LEV-II SULEV) was used for the evaluation of the Cold Air
Intake Systems. Results from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and
Development Services, Inc. of Ontario, California are shown below (in grams per mile):

2012 Nissan Altima 2.5 liter

      FTP                             NMOG            co            NOx          HCHO
                    15o,ooo mi.
                 Emission Level        0.008          0.7           0.01         0.000

                           STD        0.010           1.0           0.02         0.004

Emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Cold Air Intake
Systems do not affect OBD II operation . Therefore, based on the test results, the staff
concludes that the Cold Air Intake Systems meet the criteria for exempting general
criteria parts.

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 Cold Air Intake Systems will affect the durability of emission control
systems, Spectre Performance 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

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order.
The order may be revoked only after a ten-day written notice of intention to revoke the
order, in which period the holder of the 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

                 Spectre Performance- Cold Air Intake Systems- D-629-11

receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked untll a determination is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
