                                     State of California
                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—418—2

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                                      Roush Industries
                        Processor Assembly — Roush Horsepower

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—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Processor Assembly —
Roush Horsepower, produced and marketed by Roush Industries of 777 Republic Drive,
Suite E, Allen Park, M 48101, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the 2001 & 2002 Roush Stage 3
Mustang, manual & automatic transmissions (p/n G3ZE—12A650—AA & G3ZE—12A650—
BA).
The Processor Assembly — Roush Horsepower is a replacement powertrain control
module to be installed by authorized Roush Industries, or Ford facilities to ensure
compatibility with the existing passive anti—theft system.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Processor
Assembly — Roush Horsepower 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 Processor Assembly —
Roush Horsepower, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
Order.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Processor Assembly — Roush Horsepower
advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the Processor Assembly — Roush Horsepower using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Processor Assembly —
Roush Horsepower 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
Processor Assembly — Roush Horsepower units may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission results submitted by Roush
Industries in certifying their 2003 Stage 3 Mustang as a small volume new vehicle (E.0.
A—344—0003, engine family 3RIIVO4.6RP1) which is certified to the Transitional Low—
Emission Vehicle Passenger Car standard (TLEV, PC). The certification emission test
results submitted for new vehicle certification have been accepted as representative of
emissions in the modified configuration. Comparison of the 2003 Roush Stage 3
Mustang certification emission levels with the 2002/2001 Roush Stage 3 Mustang
emission standards shows that use of the 2003 Processor Assembly — Roush
Horsepower on the 2001 to 2002 Roush Stage 3 Mustangs will not have an adverse
effect on emissions.

The certification emission results for the 2003 Roush Stage 3 Mustang are shown below
(in grams per mile):

                       50k      NMOG         CO      NOx      HCHO
                 Emission Level 0.123        1.0     0.1       0.001
                 (w. DF applied)
                        STD        0125      3.4      0.4     0.015

                      100k       NMOG        CO      NOx      HCHO
                 Emission Level 0123         1.0     0.1       0.001
                 (w. DF applied)
                       STD       0.156       4.2      0.6      0.018

Roush Industries has demonstrated OBD II compliance of the Processor Assembly —
Roush Horsepower during certification of the Roush Stage 3 Mustang. Therefore,
based on the test results, the staff concludes that the Processor Assembly — Roush
Horsepower meets the criteria for exempting general criteria parts. However, the ARB
finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Processor Assembly —
Roush Horsepower may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating
under conditions outside the parameters of the CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.
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 Processor Assembly — Roush
Horsepower 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 ARB
with reason to suspect that the Processor Assembly — Roush Horsepower will affect the .
durability of the emission control system, Roush Industries 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.



       ROUSH INDUSTRIES — PROCESSOR ASSEMBLY — ROUSH HORSEPOWER — D—418—2


If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Processor Assembly —
Roush Horsepower will affect the durability of emission control systems, Roush
Industries shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of vehicle
emission control systems are not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified
part demonstrates adequate durability.

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 ROUSH
INDUSTRIES‘S PROCESSOR ASSEMBLY — ROUSH HORSEPOWER.

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 is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   2/ 27____   day of April, 2003.
