                                   State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—693—1

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                         American Racing Headers and Exhaust
                           Camaro Shorty Headers, Part Nos.
                       CAV—10134212SH and CAV—13134212SH

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 Section 39515 and Section 39516
of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Camaro Shorty Headers,
manufactured and marketed by American Racing Headers and Exhaust (American
Racing), 880 Grand Boulevard, Deer Park, New York 17729, 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 2010
to 2015 model year Chevrolet Camaros equipped with a 6.2L engine.

The Camaro Shorty Headers is a pair of shorty headers manufactured out of 16 gage
stainless steel. Installation would not require any modifications to any other vehicle
component. Stock connecting pipes are retained and not modified; the oxygen sensor is
located in the stock connecting pipes. Part number CAV—10134212SH is applicable to
2010 to 2012 model year Camaros and part number CAV—13134212SH is applicable to
2013 to 2015 model year Camaros.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Camaro
Shorty Headers 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 Camaro Shorty Headers, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Camaro Shorty Headers using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Camaro Shorty Headers 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 any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Camaro Shorty Headers may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.


This Executive Order is granted based on prior submitted emission test data generated on a
2010 model year 6.2L Chevrolet Camaro modified with the Camaro Shorty Headers. Test
results showed that emission levels, with the Camaro Shorty Headers installed, met the
applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP—USO6) test
cycle. Examination of the OBD II system showed that the device did not affect OBD II system
operation. Results from emissions testing are shown below (in grams per mile).

*LEV II ULEV CVS—75 FTP emissions standards, useful life.

The same emissions and OBD II test results would be expected with the Camaro Shorty
Headers installed on the requested vehicles.

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 Title 13, California Code of Regulations, 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 THE SMS 302NA KIT.

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.

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

Executed at El Monte, California, this     l   é    day of May 2017.
