obtained from the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
E—Force Supercharger Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on one
test vehicle modified with the E—Force Supercharger Kit. Test results showed that emission
levels, with the supercharger kit installed, met the applicable emission standards when
tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) test cycle. Examination of the OBD II
system showed that the supercharger kit did not affect OBD II system operation. Results
from emissions testing conducted at the Auto Club Emissions Laboratory, located in
Diamond Bar, California, are shown below (in grams per mile).

OBD II testing was also conducted on a modified 2006 model year Mustang, which
showed that the supercharger system with the modified radiator thermostat did not affect
the OBD II system operation.
