                          EXECUTIVE ORDER D—334—2
        Relating to Exemptions U}nder Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                  POWERDYNE AUTOMOTIVE PRoDUCTS —
            6 PSI MODEL # BD—10 AND BD—11/A SUPERCHARGER
 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 6 psi model
# BD—10 and # BD—1 1/A Supercharger manufactured by Powerdyne Automotive
Products, 104—C East Avenue, K—4, Lancaster, California 93535 has been found
not to reduce the effectiveness ofthe applicable vehicle pollution control system
and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for 1986 to 1995 Ford Motor Company vehicles equipped with a 5.0 or 5.8
liter fuel injected engine.

Powerdyne Automotive Products‘ model # BD—10 and # BD—11/A Supercharger
includes a 6 psi supercharger with a 3.125" pulley, fuel management system,
open element air cleaner, and assorted mounting brackets.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation of the 6 psi model #
BD—10 and # BD—11/A will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by Powedyne Automotive Products. Powerdyne
Automotive Products recommends that only 92 percent octane fuel be used and
ignition timing be retarded to 9 degrees BTDC. The crankcase breather hose is
relocated to the inlet of the supercharger after the air filter.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the 6 psi model # BD—10
and # BD—1 1/A Supercharger, as exempted by the Air Resources Board, which
adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall
invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the 6 psi # BD—10 and # BD—1 1/A Supercharger using any
identification other than that shownin this Executive Order or marketing of the6
psi model # BD—10 and # BD—11/A Supercharger for an application other than
those listed in this Executive Ordér shall be prohibited unless prior approval is
obtained from the Air Resources Board. Exemption of the 6 psi model # BD—10

  and# BD—1 1/A Supercharger shall not be construed as an exemption to sell,
  offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.

  This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of
  the 6 psi model # BD—10 and # BD—11/A Supercharger may have on any warranty
  either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

  This Executive Order is granted based on comparative intake manifold air
  pressure testing which show no effect in performance due tothe 6 psi model
  # BD—10 and # BD—11/A Supercharger during a Hot—Start 505 LA4 drive cycle.
  However, the Air Resources Board finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe
  that use of the 6 psi model # BD—10 and # BD—1 1/A Supercharger may adversely
  affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
  parameters of the previously prescribed test procedures. Accordmgly, the Air
  Resources Board reserves the right to conduct additional emission tests, in the
. future, as such test are developed, that will more adequately measure emissions
  from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate that the 6 psi # BD—10 and
  # BD—11/A Supercharger adversely affects 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 Air Resources Board with reason to
  suspect that the 6 psi model # BD—10 and # BD—1 1/A Supercharger will affect
  the durability of the emission control, Powedyne Automotive Products shall be
  required to submit durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle
  emissions 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 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 Title13, California Code of Regulations, Section
  222, et seq.

  THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
  ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT
  BY THE AIR RESOURCESBOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT
  CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS
  OF POWEDYNE AUTOMOTIVE PRODUCTS®‘ 6 PSI MODEL # BD—10 AND BD—
  11/A SUPERCHARGELR.
