                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—231—23

                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the California Vehicle Code

                                   Whipple Industries, Inc.
                                    Ford Supercharger Kit

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of
the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Ford Supercharger Kit,
manufactured and marketed by Whipple Industries, Inc., 3292 N. Weber, Fresno, California
93722, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution
control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code for the following Ford Motor Company vehicles as listed in Exhibit A which is
attached hereto and incorporated herein.

The Ford Supercharger Kit consists of the following main components: Twin Screw Whipple
supercharger, intake manifold, bypass valve, 160 degree thermostat to replace the stock
thermostat, and a new air cleaner housing with a high—flow element. The kit also includes a
reflashed ECM and a set of high flow injectors. Some kits may include an intercooler. Boost
is limited to 10 pound per square inch.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Ford
Supercharger Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Ford Supercharger Kit, as
exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Ford Supercharger Kit advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the Ford Supercharger Kit using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Ford Supercharger Kit for an application other than
those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from
the Air Resources Board.

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


                                           «2.


This Executive Order is granted based on emission test results in the modified configuration
using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure, Supplemental Federal Test Procedure
(USO8/SCO03), and an examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I!) system. A 2005
model year Ford F—150 with a 5.4 liter engine (5FMXTO5.4R4P, LEV II LEV, LDT) was used
for the evaluation of the Ford Supercharger Kit. Results from emissions testing conducted at
Roush Emissions Laboratory, Livonia, Michigan, are shown below (in grams per mile with
deterioration factors applied):

                         CVS—75                                   USO6/SCO3
                   NMOG CO          NOx          HCHO        NMHC+NOx       CO
Standards 50k      0.075    3.4     0.05         0.015        0.60/0.44   11.8/4.0
Device             0.059    2.0     0.03         0.001        0.01/0.02   3.4/1.1

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable certification
standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed the Ford Supercharger Kit does not
affect OBD II system operation.

The Air Resources Board 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.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR
RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE FORD
SUPERCHARGER KIT.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made with
respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in
which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed
revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request
and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that
grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this     ZZ rd         day of September 2005
