                                  State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—721—1

                     Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                of the California Vehicle Code

                                     Sinister Diesel
                                     Cold Air Intake


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 Cold Air Intake,
manufactured and marketed by Sinister Diesel, 2025 Opportunity Drive, Roseville,
California 95678 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 2001 through 2007 model year Ford trucks
equipped with a 6.0L diesel engine.

The Cold Air Intake consists of the following main components: Open element air
filter, air intake tubing, and all necessary mounting hardware for proper installation.
Installation of the Air Intake System requires the removal of the stock air filter
housing and all intake air tubing. If the stock air filter housing contains the
vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions control decal, a replacement decal must be
placed in a similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the 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 Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

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 Air Resources Board.

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
manufacturer.


                                            —3.


This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation which
determined that Sinister Diesel‘s Cold Air Intake would not cause an adverse effect
on emissions of the selected vehicles and on submitted On—Board Diagnostic II
testing conducted on a 2006 model year Ford F—250 truck, equipped with a 6.0L
diesel engine. The Cold Air Intake, when installed on the test vehicle, did not affect
the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

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 COLD AIR INTAKE.

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.
                                             F
Executed at El Monte, California, this    /?7‘/       day of May 2015.
