                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—629—12

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the California Vehicle Code

                                  Spectre Performance
                                     Cold Air Intake

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code; 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, 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 General Motors (GM) vehicles listed in the attached
Exhibit A.

The Cold Air Intake includes the following main components: open—element reusable air
filter (available in a variety of colors), intake system tubing, assorted brackets, and

This Executive Orderis valid provided that installation instructions for the Cold Air
Intake 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, 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 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 using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Cold Air Intake for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from
the ARB.

                      Spectre Performance ~ Cold Air Intake ~ D—629—12

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Cold
Air Intake 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) and an examination of the On—
Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system. A 2015 GMC Sierra K15 with a 5.3 liter engine
(test group FGMXTO05.3382, LEV—II ULEV) was used for the evaluation of the Cold Air
Intake. Results from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and
Development Services, Inc. of Ontario, California are shown below (in grams per mile):

2015 GMC Sierra K15 5.3L

      FTP                             NMOG             cCO           NOx           HCHO
                    120,000 mi.
                 Emission Level        0.052           0.9           0.02          0.001
                   (DF applied)
                            STD        0.070           2.1           0.04          0.011

Emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Cold Air Intake
does not affect OBD II operation. Therefore, based on the test results, the staff
concludes that the Cold Air Intake meets 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 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

                     Spectre Performance ~ Cold Air Intake ~ D—629—12

the proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of
receipt of the request and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
