    Management is very enthusiastic about this opportunity in China. However, 

it is a complex task to get the agreement completed. An agreement of this

magnitude is inherently complex and it involves extensive details that need 

to be addressed. We intend to diligently work with our outside professionals 

in properly structuring the arrangements. This process is further complicated 

by the dual language requirements and importance of ensuring mutual 

understanding and obtaining final agreement by the parties. We anticipate that

the process of finalizing an agreement is likely to occur over a several 

week period.

    The Company has already begun production of a prototype test engine, 

which is a straight four cylinder 1600cc CSRV gasoline engine, with a

compression ratio of 13 to 1, sequential fuel injection and computerized

functional controls. The engine is expected to be completed by the end of

April of 2009.
