                                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—330—2
                                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                                   of the Vehicle Code

                                                 SUPERCHIPS, INC.
                       —                             Superchips

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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Superchips, manufactured and marketed by
Superchips, Inc., 134 B Baywood Avenue, Longwood, Florida 32750 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness
of the applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of
the Vehicle Code for 1994 to 1998 Ford vehicles equipped with the 4.6 or 5.4 liter engine, part numbers listed in
Exhibit A.                                                                                »

Superchips computer chips are designed as a replacement to the factory computer chip located in the electronic
control module (ECM). The new chip is part of an electronic module that plugs into the service port on the ECM.
Changes to the Superchip computer chips are: timing is increased at part and wide open throttle, fuel is increased at
wide open throttle, shift points are raised, and RPM and speed limit are modified. Manufacturer recommends
high octane fuel.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Superchips will not recommend
tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

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

Marketing of the Superchips using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of
the Superchips 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 Superchips may have on any
warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data on a 1998 Mercury Navigator with a 5.4L
engine. Testing consisted of a Cold Start CVS 75 Federal Test Procedures (in grams/mile) in the modified
configuration emission levels:

                     NMOG       CO        NOX      HCHO
Standard             0.195      5.0       0.6      0.022
Device w/dfs         0.09       1.1       0.14     0.002

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Superchip on the trucks met the truck‘s applicable emission
standard during a Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. This Executive Order is also based on On Board
Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same truck. Test data showed that the Superchip when installed on
the trucks did not affect the truck‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

SUPERCHIPS, INC..                                                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—330—2
Superchips                                                            (Page 2 of 2)

The ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Superchip may adversely affect emissions of
motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test procedures.
Accordingly, the ARB reserves the right to conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as such tests are
developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate
that the Superchip adversely affect emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as those conditions which are
beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively
rescinded as of the date the test results are validated. Further, if such test results or other evidence provides the
ARB with reason to suspect that the Superchip will affect the durability of the emission control system,
Superchips, Inc. shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emission
control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB 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.


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 after hearing that grounds for
revocation exist.
Executed at El Monte, California, this    i f day
