IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Ford Focus Supercharger Kit,

not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle
manufacturer.

Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Ford Focus Supercharger Kit advertised, offered for
sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate
purchaser.

Marketing of the supercharger using any identification other than that shown in this Executive
Order or marketing of the supercharger for an application other than those listed in this Executive
Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.
Exemption of the supercharger shall not be construed as 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 supercharger
may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


                                                  _2

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions test data generated on a 2002 Ford Focus
certified to the Ultra Low—Emission Vehicle (ULEV) emission standards. Emission levels of the
modified vehicle met the applicable emission standards over the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (USO6/SC03) test cycles.
Results are in grams per mile with deterioration factors added to CVS—75 results:

same test vehicle. Test data showed that the supercharger when installed on the vehicle did not
affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.              '

seq.
