            TURBONETICS, INC.                                       EXECUTIVE ORDER 0-99-2
            TURBOCHARGER SYSTEMS                                    (Page 2 of 3)



            This Executive Order is granted based on test results verifying that the
            turbocharger is not functional during the CVS-75 Federa 1 Test Procedure
            (FTP) driving cycle. However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist
            to be1 ieve that use of the turbocharger components may adversely affect
            emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
            parameters of the previously prescribed test procedures. Accordingly, the
            ARB reserves the right to conduct additional emission tests, in the future,
            as such tests are developed, that will more adequately measure emissions
            from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate that the
            turbocharger components adversely affects emissions during off-cycle
            conditions (defined as those conditions which are beyond the parameters of
            the Cold-Start CVS-75 Federal Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be
            effectively rescinded as of the date the test results are validated.
            Further, If such test results or other evidence provides the ARB with reason
            to suspect that the turbocharger components will affect the durability of
            the emission control system, Turbonetics, Inc. shall be required t o submit
            durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emission control
            system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add-on or modified part
            demonstrates adequate durability.
            In addition t o the foregoing, the ARB reserves the right in the future t o
            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 o f Title 13, California Code o f 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
                     CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI-POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY'ALLEGED
                     BENEFITS OF TURBONETICS, INC.'S TURBOCHARGER COMPONENTS.

            Section 43644 of the Health and Safety Code provides as follows:

                  advertise, or, except in an application to the state board for
                  certification of a device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle
                  pollution control device for use on any used motor vehicle unless that
                  device has been certified by the state board. No person shall sell,
