                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—777

                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the California Vehicle Code

                                    KTN Thermo Dynamics
                                     KTN Thermo Spacer

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 KTN Thermo Spacer,
manufactured and marketed by KTN Thermo Dynamics, 612 North 39th Avenue,
Yakima, Washington 98908, 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 following vehicle applications listed in
Exhibit A.

The KTN Thermo Spacer Spacer is a composite spacer plate, approximately one inch thick
with no helical grooves on the inside ports, and is installed between the vehicle‘s throttle
body and intake manifold. There are no user adjustments for proper installation and no
sensors are moved or modified. No changes are made to the ECU calibration with
installation.                                                      '

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the KTN Thermo
Spacer will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the KTN Thermo Spacer, as exempt
by the Air Resources Board, 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 KTN Thermo Spacer 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 KTN Thermo Spacer using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the KTN Thermo Spacer 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 KTN
Thermo Spacer may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on an engineering evaluation which determined
that the KTN Thermo Spacer would not cause an adverse effect on emissions of the
selected vehicles and on submitted On—Board Diagnostic II testing conducted on a 2013
model year 2.4L Honda Civic Si and a 2011 model year 2.5L Subaru Impreza. The KTN
Thermo Spacer when installed on the test vehicles 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.


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 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      day of July 2016.
