Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for applicable 1997 through 2002 model—year Ford trucks
and engines, as listed in Exhibit A. Trucks equipped with a close coupled catalyst are
excluded from this Executive Order.

This Executive Order is.granted based on the following emissions test data on a 1999 Ford
F—150 truck equipped with a 5.4L engine and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
emission standards, using PowérPack Exhaust System, part no. 48723:

                  NMoG co Nox HcHo
Standards         0.195    5.0    0.6       0.022
device w/ dfs     0.108    1.7    01        0.002

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the PowerPack System installed on the
vehicle met the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards during a Cold Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on an On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II)
test conducted on the same test vehicle. Test data showed that the PowerPack System when
installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

 In addition to the foregoing, the ARB 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.
