Aero Performance Products, Inc. Announces Muffler Buyback Program With Credit Toward Purchase of Aero Exhaust Products

Offer Made Through Regional U.S. Warehouse Distributors and to Individual Shops

SOUTH JORDAN, UT--(Marketwire - March 11, 2008) - Aero Performance Products, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AERP), which operates Aero Exhaust, Inc., a world leader in performance exhaust airflow technology and NASCAR Performance Partner, today announced that the company is launching a muffler buyback promotion program through its distributors, whereby Aero will pay muffler shops and other automotive supply outlets $10 for any uninstalled competitors product to be used toward any new Aero muffler.

The promotion will be launched this week by the first of Aero's regional warehouse distributors, then rolled out nationwide later this month. The buyback program will also be offered through individual dealers and installation shops.

"In addition to the month-over-month and quarter-over-quarter revenue increases that Aero has experienced since the end of the third quarter of 2007, we expect that promotional programs such as this muffler buyback program will spur additional revenue growth for the company," Bryan Hunsaker, chief executive officer of Aero Performance Products, Inc. "Often one barrier for a salesman to overcome when selling a new product line is the old unsold product on the retailer's shelf. When we remove that barrier it is much more likely our salesmen will succeed in their distribution efforts. The buyback program not only turns more product but also introduces the product into new shops we were previously unable to reach."

Aero has established relationships with major regional warehouse distributors in the U.S., including Allied Exhaust, Full Line Exhaust, Franks Supply Co., and Wynne Exhaust, as well as a recently announced relationship with Henschel and Sons Automotive Warehouse. The five major distributors cover territories that range from California to the west, the Canadian border to the north, the Mexican border and Gulf of Mexico to the south and the Atlantic Ocean to the east, and include approximately 40 states. Aero also has additional relationships with other regional distributors.

Aero has reported increased sales for January 2008 and February 2008 over the same periods last year due to increased distribution of Aero products in the United States and international markets. The company also announced higher sales in the fourth quarter of 2007 over the same period in 2006. Sales for January 2008 more than doubled December 2007 sales with a growth rate of 109% and the company experienced a double-digit growth rate from January to February 2008.
