                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D-671

                              Relating to Exemptions under
                            Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                                 TranCert Marketing Inc.
                                      lntercharger

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 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 lntercharger, manufactured
by TranCert Marketing Inc. (2295 Berry Lane, Suite 888, Point Roberts, Washington
98281), has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle
pollution control systems, and therefore, the lntercharger device is exempt from the
prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the following vehicle
applications:

 Model Number                      Vehicle Application
FCS-R-V           1963-2009 model year passenger cars and lighvmedium-duty
                  trucks with gasoline engines and a closed crankcase ventilation
                  system
FCS-R-V, FCS-P-V, 1998-2009 model year passenger cars and lighvmedium-duty
FCS-G-V           trucks with diesel engines up to 8.2 liters and a closed crankcase
                  ventilation system

The lntercharger devices consist of a metallic cylindrical housing with hose fittings on
each end for the crankcase hose connections.

This Executive Order is based on Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure tests,
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure tests, and On-Board Diagnostic I1 System tests
conducted by TranCert Marketing Inc. with the lntercharger device.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the
lntercharger device will affect the durability of the emission control system, TranCert
Marketing Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of
the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected andlor that the add-on or
modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the lntercharger
device 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 Intercharger device, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle's emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Intercharger device 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 Intercharger device shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer
for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Intercharger device 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
Intercharger device 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 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 TRANCERT
MARKETING INC.'S INTERCHARGER DEVICE.

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.

Executed at El Monte, California, this    6)         day of December 2009.

                                   EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: TranCert Marketing Inc.

Name of Device: l ntercharger

Background:
       TranCert Marketing Inc. of 2295 Berry Lane, Suite 888, Point Roberts, Washington
98281 has applied for exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle
Code for its Intercharger. The device is designed for use on 1963-2009 model year passenger
cars and light/medium-duty trucks with gasoline engines and a closed crankcase ventilation
system and 1998-2009 model year passenger cars and lightlmedium-duty trucks with diesel
engines up to 8.2 liters and a closed crankcase ventilation system.

Recommendation:
       Grant exemption to ~ r a n ~ eMarketing
                                      rt       Inc. as requested and issue Executive Order
D-671.

Device Description:
        The various lntercharger models consist of a metallic cylindrical housing of varying
diameters and are closed on each end with serrated hose fittings. The internal material
composition for the lntercharger is the same for each device model. The lntercharger device is
installed in line with the crankcase ventilation hose between the positive crankcase ventilation
valve and the air intake system.

Discussion/Basisfor the Recommendation:
       This exerr~ptionis based on: FTP, SFTP, and OBD II System tests conducted on a 2007
model year 1.8 liter Honda Civic EX sedan LEV II ULEV, a 2007 model year 6.0 liter Chevrolet
Corvette LEV II LEV, and a 2008 model year 6.7 liter Dodge Ram 3500 diesel truck LEV II LEV
to evaluate the impact of the lntercharger device on emissions. Testing was conducted on
these vehicles modified with TranCert Marketing Inc.'s Intercharger device. Results are shown
below:

Notes:

1. Honda Civic coupe test vehicle - Test group 7HNXV01.8MKR (LEV II ULEV); evaporative family
  7HNXR0106BBY (LEV II evap.); odometer reading 38,876 miles.
  Chevrolet Corvette test vehicle - Test group 7GMXV06.0081 (LEV II LEV); evaporative family
  7GMXR0133880 (LEV II evap.); odometer reading I1,124 miles.
  Dodge Ram 3500 diesel test vehicle - Test group 8CEXK06.7UXW (LEV II LEV); odometer reading
  5,125 miles.
2. Testing laboratory - Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS) in Ontario, California.
3. Honda Civic OBD II System Results - One additional drive sequence was required to successfully
  complete EVAP mor~itortesting.
4. Chevrolet Corvette OBD II System Results - A GM EVAP Service Bay Procedure was required to
  successfully complete EVAP monitor testing.


FTP and SFTP emission results showed that the modified vehicles meet the exhaust emission
standards. Testing also showed that the modification does not have any adverse impact on the
vehicle's OBD II System. Similar results are expected when TranCert Marketing Inc.'s
Intercharger device is used on the 1963-2009 model year passenger cars and
lighvmedium-duty trucks with gasoline engines and 1998-2009 model year passenger cars and
lighumedium-duty trucks with diesel engines (up to 8.2 liters) listed in this application.
