                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D—473
                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code


                                    SALEEN PERFORMANCE
                                    SALEEN 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
Ssection 39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Saleen Supercharger,
9 Whatney,   Irvine,   California    92618,   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 1998 4.6 liter SOHV Ford Mustang GT            (p/n 178—553).

The Saleen Supercharger includes the following main components:                water pump,
intercooler,   Eaton M—90 supercharger,       24 lb/hr fuel injectors,       throttle cable,
modified engine control unit, assorted brackets, and hardware.  The diameter
of the drive pulley is 167 mm (6.54 inches), and the supercharger pulley
diameter is 74 mm (2.90 inches).  Maximum boost is 8 psi at 6,000 rpm, boost
pressure is 5—6 psi between 3,000 and 5,000 rpm.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for
the Saleen Supercharger 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 Saleen Supercharger,
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 Saleen Supercharger using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Saleen 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 Saleen 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 Saleen Supercharger may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

 SALEEN SUPERCHARGER                                                 (Page 2 of 3)

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure and
examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system.  Results from
emissions testing conducted at the Mercedes—Benz Service Corporation Test Lab,
of Ann Arbor,   Michigan,    are shown below     (in grams per mile):

                   Raw                NMHC      cCO          NOx
                Emission Level        0.082     1.081        0.070

                Emission Level        0 .113    1.732        0 .098

                   100k               NMHC      CO           NOx
                           DF         1.796     2.255        1.827
                Emission Level        0.147     2 .438       0 .128
                (w. DF applied)
                          STD         0 .31     4 .2         0 .6

The emission test results      in the modified confiqguration were below the
applicable certification emission standards.                Examination of the OBD II system
showed the Saleen Supercharger does not affect OBD II operation.                      Therefore,
based on the test results, the staff concludes that the Saleen Supercharger
meets the criteria for exempting general criteria parts as specified in the
"Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts".  However, the ARB
finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Saleen
Supercharger 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
Saleen 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 ARB with reason to suspect that
the Saleen Supercharger will affect the durability of the emission control
system,   Saleen Performance 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 SALEEN PERFORMANCE‘S SALEEN SUPERCHARGER.

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.
