                                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—473—2
                              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 Section
        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,
        manutfactured and marketed by Saleen Performance, 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 1999 to 2000 model—year 4.6 liter Ford MustangGT
        (p/n 178—600).

        The Saleen Supercharger includes the following main components: water pump,
        intercooler, Eaton M—90 supercharger, 30 Ib/hr fuel injectors, 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 8.5 psi at 5,800 rpm.

       —This Executive Order is valid provided that the instailation 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.

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

SALEEN PERFORMANCE                                        EXECUTIVE ORDER D—473—2
SALEEN SUPERCHARGER                                        (Page 2 of 3)            |


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
shallnot 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.

This Executive Order is granted based on emission results submitted by Saleen
Performance in certifying their supercharged Mustang GT as a small volume
manufacturer of new vehicles (Saleen $281, E.O. A—324—6, engine family
XSSXVO4.6ABA). The final configuration of a 1999 Ford Mustang GT equipped with the
Saleen Supercharger is the same as the Saleen S281. The certification emission
results are shown below (in grams per mile):


                       50k      NMHC       CO        NOx
                 Emission Level 0.14       1.6      0.1
                 (w. DF applied)
                        STD        0.25    3.4      0.4

                      100k      NMHC       CO       NOx
                 Emission Level 0.19       2.4      0.1
                 (w. DF applied)
                        STD        0.31    4.2      0.6

The certification emission test results submitted for new vehicle certification have been
accepted as the emission test results that would have normally been used to represent
emissions in the modified configuration. The certification emission test results
submitted were below the applicable certification standards. Examination of the OBD II
system was not performed in the conventional method for exemption testing since
Saleen Performance was required to demonstrate OBD II compliance during
certification. Therefore, based on the test results, the staff concludes that the Saleen
Supercharger meets the criteria for exempting general criteria 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 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.

         Executed at El Monte, California, this d         day of December 1999.

                                      SUMMARY


          Saleen Performance of 9 Whatney, Irvine, California 92618, has applied for

an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code (VC)

for the Saleen Supercharger designed for the 1999 to 2000 model—year 4.6 liter Ford

Mustang GT (p/n 178—600). The 1999 4.6 liter Ford Mustang GT equipped with the

Saleen Supercharger results in a vehicle identical to the Saleen $281, certified as a

newvehicle by Saleen Performance.

           Because Saleen Performance has certified the S281 as a new vehicle, the

certification test results have been accepted as the basis for comparison of emissions in

the modified configuration with the applicable standards. An examination of the On—

Board Diagnostic I! (OBD II) system with the intercooled supercharger system installed

was not p.erformed since OBD II compliance was demonstrated during new vehicle

certification. The staff concludes that the Saleen Supercharger will not adversely affect

exhaust emissions from vehicles for which the exemption is requested.

           The staff recommends that Saleen Performance be granted an exemption as

requested and that Executive Order D—473—2 be issued.

I.   INTRODUCTION

             Saleen Performance of 9 Whatney, Irvine, California, has applied for an

exémption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code {(VC) for

the Saleen Supercharger designed for the 1999 to 2000 model—year 4.6 liter Ford

Mustang GT {p/n 178—600).

II. CONCLUSIONS

             In lieu of emission testing, and examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II

(OBD I1) system with the Saleen Supercharger installed, staff has accepted certification

test results of the Saleen $281. The Saleen S281 is a new vehicle certified by Saleen

Performance which is a 1999 4.6 liter Ford Mustang GT equipped with the Saleen

Supercharger. The staff concludes that Saleen Performance‘s Saleen Supercharger will

not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the vehicles for which the exemption is

requested.

III. RECOMMENDATION

             The staff recommends that Saleen Performance be granted an exemption for

their Saleen Supercharger for installation on the 1999 to 2000 model—year 4.6 liter Ford

Mustang GT (p/n 178—600).


IV. SALEEN SUPERCHARGER DESCRIPTION

           The Saleen Performance intercooled supercharger kit has been specifically

designed for installation on the 1999 to 2000 model—year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang GT (p/n

178—600). The diameter of the drive pulley is 167 mm (6.54 ihches), and the

supercharger pulley diameter is 74 mm (2.90 inches). Maximum boost is 8.5 psi at

5,800 rpm. In addition to the forced induction provided by the supercharger, the system

utilizes an intercooier, upgraded fuel injectors (30 Ib/hr versus 19 Ib/hr stock), and a

modified engine control unit.

           The intent of installing the Saleen Supercharger is to increase power output

at particular engihe loads and throttle openings. At heavy engine loads and increased

throttle openings, the airflow into the engine is increased because of the compression of

intake air due to the intercooled supercharger. This allows more air to enter the e'ngine,

which is compensated by the modified vehicle engine control module with an increase in

fuel flow through the upgraded fuel injectors, resulting in a higher power output. Intake |

air density (and potential power output) is further increased by the intercooler which

cools the compressed intake air after being heated from compression in the

supercharger.

              The installation of the kit requires modification to the stock intake and

ignition systems to accommodate components of the Saleen Supercharger. Additional

equipment installed during the installation include the: intercooler, supercharger, water

pump (for the intercooler), intercooler water recovery tank, upgraded fuel injectors, fuel

rail, upgraded engine control module, and other assorted brackets and hardware.


V.         DISCUSSION OF THE SALEEN SUPERCHARGER

                This Executive Order is granted based on emission results submitted by

Saleen Performance in certifying their supercharged Mustang GT as a small volume

manufacturer of new vehicles (Saleen $281, E.0. A—324—6, engine family

XS3XVO4.6ABA). The final configuration of a 1999 Ford Mustang GT equipped with the

Saleen Supercharger is the same as the Saleen $281 produced by Saleen

Performance as a new vehicle. Saleen Performance equips new 1999 Ford Musténg

GT‘s with the Saleen Supercharger kits and sells them as new vehicles. The

certification emission results are shown below (in grams per mile):


                       5Ok       NMHC      CO        NOx
                 Emission Level 0.14       1.6      0.1
                 (w. DF applied)
                       STD       0.25      3.4      0.4

                       100k       NMHC     CO       NOx
                 Emission Level 0.19       2.4      0.1
                 {(w. DF applied)
                        STD       0.31     4.2      0.6


       The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable

certification standards. An examination of the On—Board Diagnostic IIl (OBD II) system

with the intercooled supercharger system installed was not performed since OBD I!

compliance was demonstrated during new vehicle certification. Therefore, based on the

test results, the staff concludes that the Saleen Supercharger meets the criteria for the

exemption of general criteria 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

     previously prescribed test procedure. Accordingly, the ARB reserves the right to

     gonduct additional emission tests in the future, as such tests are developed.

                Saleen Performance has submitted all the required information and fulfilled

     the requirements for an exemption.
