                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—783—1

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the California Vehicle Code

                                     Carbonio Intake

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resourcevs Board (ARB) by Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code (VC); 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 RESOVED: That installation of the Carbonio Intake, produced
and marketed by APR LLC (APR) of 4800 US HWY 280 West, Opelika, Alabama
36801, 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 vehicles listed in the attached Exhibit A.

The Carbonio Intake is a replacement for the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
air intake system. The Carbonio Intake includes the following main components: open—
element air filter, intake system tubing, assorted brackets, and hardware. No changes
are made to any other component of the stock engine, including engine calibration.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Carbonio
Intake will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Carbonio Intake, as exempt
by ARB, 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 Carbonio Intake 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 Carbonio Intake using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Carbonio Intake for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Carbonio Intake may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified
configuration using the Federal Test Procedure (FTP), Supplemental Federal Test
Procedure (SFTP US06), 2—Days Diurnal + Hot Soak evaporative emissions test (2—Day
Evap.), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system. A 2016
Volkswagen GTI (GVGAVO2.0APA, LEV—II SULEV) and a 2010 Volkswagen CC
(AVWXVO2.03PA, LEV—II SULEV), each equipped with a 2.0 liter turbocharged engine,
were used for the evaluation of the Carbonio Intake. Results from emissions testing
conducted at Automotive Testing & Development Services, Inc., are shown below
(in grams per mile, with DF‘s applied):

Emission test results in the modified configuration for both test vehicles were at or
below the applicable certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system on both
test vehicles showed Carbonio Intake does not affect OBD II operation. Therefore,
based on the test results, the staff concludes that the Carbonio Intake meets the criteria
for exemption.

ARB 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. Further, if test results or other evidence provides ARB with reason to suspect
that the Carbonio Intake will affect the durability of emission control systems, APR shall
be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of vehicle emission
control systems are not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
demonstrates adequate durability.
