This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Fuel
Injection Performance Kit, 77-Series Intake Systems, and Blackhawk Intake Systems

This Executive Order is granted based on an examination of the On-Board Diagnostic II
(OBD II) system . A 2015 Ford F150 vehicle equipped with a 5.0L VS engine (Test
Group FFMXT05.03DK, LEV II ULEV) was used for the evaluation of the Fuel Injection
Performance Kit, 77-Series Intake Systems, and Blackhawk Intake Systems.

Examination of the OBD II system showed the Fuel Injection Performance Kit, 77-Series
Intake Systems, and Blackhawk Intake Systems do not affect OBD II operation.
Therefore, based on the test results, the staff concludes that the Fuel Injection
Performance Kit, 77-Series Intake Systems, and Blackhawk Intake Systems meet the
criteria for exempting general criteria parts.

vehicle emission control systems are not, in fact, affected and/or that the add-on or
modified part demonstrates adequate durability.
