Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of

pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156
of the Vehicle Code for the following Ford vehicles:

The EcoBoost Upgrade Kit includes the following main components: New air box and lid
with conical air filter, intake air tubing, new intercooler, and a new electronic control unit
calibration with no user adjustments. The stock manifold air pressure sensor is retained in
its stock location and orientation. Installation of the EcoBoost Upgrade Kit requires the
removal of the stock air filter housing, if the stock air filter housing contains the
vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions control decal, a replacement decal must be placed in
a similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the EcoBoost
Upgrade Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of
Whipple Industries, Inc.


Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the EcoBoost Upgrade 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 exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data, from the SEMA Garage,
Diamond Bar, California, on a 2015 model year Ford 2.3L Turbo Mustang certified to the
LEV 3 ULEV 70 emission standards and tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure
(SFTP USO6/SC03) test cycle.

Test results showed that the EcoBoost Upgrade Kit when installed on the vehicle did not
cause exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards during the FTP and
SFTP. This Executive Order is also based on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11) testing
conducted on the same test vehicle. The EcoBoost Upgrade Kit when installed on the test
vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

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 ECOBOOST
UPGRADE 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.
