                               EXECU-TIVE ORDER D-640

                             Relating to Exemptions under
                           Section 271 56 of the Vehicle Code

                                  C&L Performance Inc.
                                  Air lnduction Systems

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 271 56 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G-02-003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Air lnduction Systems,
manufactured by C&L Performance Inc. of 207 Green Cove Rd., Huntsville, Alabama
35803, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control systems, and therefore, the Air lnduction Systems are exempt from the
prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the vehicles listed in
Attachment A.

The Air lnduction Systems may be sold in four configurations: I ) a modified mass air
flow housing, 2) a modified mass air flow housing and an open element air filter, 3) a
modified mass air flow housing, open element air filter, and aluminum air inlet tube, and
4) an aluminum air inlet tube. The Air lnduction Systems all include assorted mounting
brackets and hoses, including the positive crankcase ventilation breather hose in some
applications.

This Executive Order is based on Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure tests and
On-Board Diagnostic II System tests conducted by C&L Performance Inc. with the Air
lnduction Systems.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the Air
lnduction Systems will affect the durability of the emission control system, C&L
Performance Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of
the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add-on or
modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Air lnduction
Systems do not recommend tuning the vehicles to specifications different from those of
the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Air lnduction Systems, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicles' emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.


Marketing of the Air lnduction Systems using identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order shall
be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.
Exemption of the Air lnduction Systems shall not be construed as exemption to sell,
offer for sale, or advertise any component of the system as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Air lnduction Systems advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Air
lnduction Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

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.

In addition to the foregoing, 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
California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITU-TE 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 C&L
PERFORMANCE INC.'S AIR INDUCTION SYSTEMS.

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

                      C&L PERFORMANCE INC. -AIR INDUCTION SYSTEMS - D-640


                                             EVALUAI'ION SUMMARY

    Manufacturer Name: C&L Performance Inc.

    Name of Device: Air lnduction Systems

    Backqround:
             C&L Performance Inc. (C&L) of 207 Green Cove Rd., Huntsville, Alabama 35803 has
    requested an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code
    for its Air lnduction Systems. The vehicles in the application include 2006 and older vehicles.
    They are subject to the following standards and regulations:
    1.       LEV II LEV or higher Federal Test Procedure (FTP) exhaust emission standards
    2.       Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) exhaust emission standards
    3.       LEV II or higher evaporative emission standards
    4.       On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) System regulations

    Recommendation:
            Grant exemption to C&L as requested and issue Executive Order D-640. The Air
    lnduction Systems exempted under this Executive Order are identified in Attachment A.

    Device Description:
             C&L's Air lnduction Systems are designed to increase the vehicle's power output by
    increasing the amount of air into the engine. The air induction systems may be sold in four
    configurations, consisting of: 1) a modified mass air flow housing, 2) a modified mass air flow
    housing and an open element air filter, 3) a modified mass air ,flow housing, open element air
    filter and air inlet tube, 4) air inlet tube. All come with assorted connectors, hoses, and mounting
    brackets and hardware. The various systems replace the stock mass air flow housing, air filter,
    the filter housing, and air inlet pipe(s). In some applications, the positive crankcase ventilation
    breather hose is replaced.

    DiscussionlBasis for the Recommendation:
            This exemption is based on: FTP and OBD II System tests conducted on a 2006 model
    year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang GT LEV II LEV to evaluate the impact of the system on emissions.
    SFTP testing was not required because the CO and NMHC+NOx US06 certification values were
    lower than 40 percent of the SFTP US06 standard values. Testing was conducted on a vehicle
    modified with C&L's Air lnduction System, part number 10699-05-PI, which include mass air
    flow housing, open element air filter and air inlet tube. Results are shown below:

Notes:

1. Test vehicle -Test group 6FMXVO4.6VEM (LEV II LEV); evaporative family 6FMXR0185GAK (LEV II
evap.); odometer reading 21,414 miles.
2. Testing laboratory - Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS) in Ontario, California.
3. OBD II System Results - It was necessary to drive the test vehicle in the Ford recommended drive
sequence in order to set the evaporative system to complete.


FTP emission results showed that the modified vehicle meets the exhaust emission standards.
Testing also showed that the modification does not have any adverse irnpact on the vehicle's
OBD II System. Similar results are expected when any of the C&L Air Inductions Systems
included in this application are used on the listed vehicles.
