                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—789

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                               Engine Technologies Group
                                  EGT Billet Distributors


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 EGT Billet Distributors,
manufactured and marketed by Engine Technologies Group, 15620 Industrial Parkway,
Cleveland, Ohio 44135, 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 Ford and General
Motors vehicle applications listed in Exhibit A.

The EGT Billet Distributors is a direct fit ignition spark distributor that has been
designed to function identical to stock. The EGT Billet Distributor differs in exterior
construction material and uses a magnetic pickup trigger instead of the stock points or
the early analog non—points triggers. Timing advance is conducted using an internal
centrifugal weight and a vacuum advance diaphragm, same as stock. No changes
are made to any component of the stock engine for installation.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the EGT Billet
Distributors 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 EGT Billet Distributors 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 EGT Billet Distributors using any identification other than that shown
in this Executive Order or marketing of the EGT Billet Distributors 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 is granted based on an engineering evaluation and information
supplied by Engine Technologies Group on the EGT Billet Distributors. Comparisons
made between the stock and modified part demonstrated similarity in functionality and
the spark timing advance curve for typical applications. Other vehicle listed should have
similar results.


                                             ..


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 EGT BILLET
DISTRIBUTORS.

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    Z       2   day of December 2016.
