                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D-473-13

                             Relating to Exemptions under
                           Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code

                             Saleen Performance Vehicles
                           Saleen Series VI Supercharger Kit

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 Sections 39515 and 39516 of the
Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G-02-003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Saleen Series VI
Supercharger Kit, manufactured by Saleen Performance Vehicles of 1601 West Hamlin
Road, Rochester Hills, Michigan 48309, have been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems, and therefore, the
Series VI Supercharger Kit is exempt from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code for installation on the following naturally aspirated vehicle applications:

Kit Part Number     Kit Horsepower           Vehicle Application
10-1607-B15058I          475       2007-2009 model year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang
                                   with the following test group numbers:
                                   7FMXV05.4VEK
                                   8FMXV05.4VEK
                                   9FMXV05.4VEK         '




Note: Supplemental kit 06-1604-B19222, which contains an alternator pulley and
intake manifold gaskets, is required when installing the Series VI Supercharger Kit on
2009 model year vehicles.

The Saleen Series VI Supercharger Kit consists of an integrated intake manifold with a
Lysholm 2.3L Twin Screw supercharger, intercooler, water pump, a reprogrammed
powertrain control module, and assorted parts to complete the installation. The
supercharger kit is driven by the stock 6.57 inch diameter crankshaft pulley and reuses
the original equipment throttle body. The 475 horsepower Series VI Supercharger Kit is
rated at a maximum boost of 6.5 pounds per square inch and utilizes a 3.88 inch
diameter pulley. This kit uses new fuel injectors, air inlet duct, and air box lid. An
original equipment hydrocarbon absorber is purchased from the Ford supplier of this
part and is installed in the same location of the air box lid as the original hydrocarbon
absorber.      .


This Executive Order is granted based on emissions tests submitted by Saleen
Performance Vehicles in certifying their supercharged 2009 model year Saleen S281
(4.6 liter engine) and S302 (5.0 liter engine) models as small volume new vehicles
(E.O. A-324-0025, test group 9S3XV05.OJDC Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) II LEV).
Saleen Performance Vehicles determined that the supercharged Saleen S302 Extreme
model, which is a 5.0 liter modified version of the 4.6 liter original equipment engine,
was the worst case vehicle for emission testing. The final configuration of the
2007-2009 model year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang equipped with the Saleen Series VI
Supercharger Kit will be the same as the Saleen S281 Supercharged vehicle.

The certification emission results and exhaust emission standards are shown below (in
grams per mile):
                                 FTP
                     NMOG CONOX          HCHO

Standards, 120K      0.090 4.2 0.07        0.018

Standards, 4K        0.14 10.20    8.0 12.7
Emission results     0.1 1 10.01   6.5 / 0.5

The emission test results submitted for new vehicle certification have been accepted as
representative of emissions in the modified configuration and were below the applicable
certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system in the 2009 model year
supercharged Saleen vehicles showed the Saleen Series Vl Supercharger Kit does not
affect OBD II system operation.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the Saleen
Series VI Supercharger Kit will affect the durability of the emission control system,
Saleen Performance Vehicles shall be required to submit durability data to show that
the durability of the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected andlor that
the add-on or modified parts demonstrate adequat8'burability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Saleen Series
VI Supercharger Kit do 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 Series VI
Supercharger Kit, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of the vehicles' emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive
Order.
