Exempted parts are add-on or modified parts that have undergone an ARB engineering evaluation. If the part or modification is shown to not increase vehicle emissions, it is granted an exemption to emission control system anti-tampering laws. This exemption is called an Executive Order (EO) and allows the modification to be installed on specific emission controlled vehicles. Every Executive Order part or modification has an assigned number that can be verified by Smog Check stations, BAR Referee stations, or by the ARB.

There are, oh, a zillion turbo kits listed so that in and of itself isn't special or unique.

Oh, I remember what it was about CARB numbers: having one is NOT an endorsement for power or fe increases. It merely doesn't break any laws.
