Supercharger Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
of Kenne Bell, Inc.


Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Kenne Bell Supercharger Kit, as
exempt by the California 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 prior submitted emissions test data on a 2015 model
year 5.0L Mustang and new emissions test data on a 2017 model year 5.0L Mustang, both
certified to the Low Emission Vehicle III Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV III ULEV 125)
standards and both tested using the Cold Start Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) test cycles. Test results from Automotive
Testing and Development Services, Inc. of Ontario, California, on both vehicles are listed

          KENNE BELL, INC. — KENNE BELL SUPERCHARGER KIT — D—271—31


Test results showed that the Kenne Bell Supercharger Kit when installed on the vehicle did
not cause exhaust or evaporative emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards
during the FTP, SFTP, and 2 Day Diurnal (2015 only). This Executive Order is also based
on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1I) testing conducted on the same test vehicle. The
Kenne Bell Supercharger Kit when installed on the test vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s
ability to perform its OBD II monitoring. Similar results would be expected from the other
vehicles listed in this Executive Order.

The California 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
KENNE BELL SUPERCHARGER KIT.

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

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
