                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—330—5
                           Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                        of the Vehicle Code _

                                        SUPERCHIPS, INC.
                                       Ford Upgrade Module


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 Ford Upgrade Module,
manufactured and marketed by Superchips, Inc., 134 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       >       f
those applicable 1985 to 2000 model—year vehicles equipped with engine displacements listed
in Exhibit A, and are also equipped with the EEC4 or EECS Electronic Fuel Injection System.
Vehicles certified to the ultra low emission vehicle (ULEV) emission standards are excluded.
The 1200 series part numbers are applicable to Ford vehicles equipped with a diesel or
V—10 gasoline engine and the 1100 series part numbers are applicable to all other Ford
applications.

The diesel Ford Upgrade Module is designed as a replacement to the factory computer chip
located in the electronic control module (ECM). The new electronic module plugs into the
service port on the ECM. Changes to the stock operating parameters from the installation of
the Ford Upgrade Module are: Fuel delivery is increased at high loads, shift points are raised,
boost pressure is increased, and RPM and speed limit are modified. An insert is also included
for the vacuum line connected to the waste—gate actuator.

The gasoline Ford Upgrade Module is designed as a replacement to the factory computer chip
located in the electronic control module (ECM). The new electronic module plugs into the
service port on the ECM. Changes to the stock operating parameters from the installation of
the Ford Upgrade Module 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 use of high octane fuel with the Ford Upgrade Module.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Superchlps Inc. Ford Upgrade Module advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle pnor to or concurrent with transfer to
an ultimate purchaser.


SUPERCHIPS, INC.                                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—330—5
Ford Upgrade Module                                                (Page 2 of 3)



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

Marketing of the Ford Upgrade Module using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Ford Upgrade Module for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approvalis obtained fromthe Alr
Resources Board.

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

This Executive Order is granted based on results of prior emissions tests conducted on a 1999
Ford diesel F—350 truck with a 7.3L engine that is certified to the low emission vehicle (LEV)
standards, a 1998 Mercury Navigator with a 5.4L engine that is certified to the LEV standards,
and a 1993 Ford Mustang with a 5.0L engine that is certified to the Tier 0 standards. Test
results showed that tailpipe emissions with the Superchip installed were below the applicable
emission standards or within the allowable limits for comparative emissions testing as specified
in the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts".                            +

This Executive Order is also based on the On Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) testing conducted on
the F—350 and the Navigator trucks. Test data showed that the Superchnp when .installed on the
trucks did not affect their ability to perform OBD II monitoring.

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.

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 SUPERCHIPS, INC.‘S FORD UPGRADE MODULE.

respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.
