                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—478—5
                           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 instalilation of the Saleen Supercharger,
     manufactured and marketed by Saleen Performance, 9 Whatney, Irvine, California
     92618, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicte
     pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
     27156 of the Vehicle Code for the 1999 to 2001 model—year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang GT
     (p/n 178—607).

     The Saleen Supercharger includes the following main components: water pump,
     intercooler; Eaton M—90 supercharger, 30 lb/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 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.

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

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 unlessprior 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
system 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 new
vehicle (Saleen $281 SC coupe, convertible, E.0. A—324—10, engine family
1S3XVO4.6JDA, TLEV, PC). The final configuration of a 2001 Ford Mustang GT
equipped with the Saleen Supercharger is the same as the Saleen S$281 SC coupe,
convertible. . The certification emission results are shown below (in grams per mile):


                      50k      NMOG         CO      NOx     HCHO
                Emission Level 0.111        1.0     0.1     0.0005
                (w. DF applied)
                       STD        0.125     3.4     0.4      0.015

                     100k      NMOG         CO      NOx     HCHO
                Emission Level 0.143        1.4     0.2      0.001
                (w. DF applied)
                       STD        0.156     4.2     0.6      0.018

The certification emission test results submitted for new vehicle certification have been
accepted as representative of emissions in the modified configuration. The certification
emission test results were below the applicable certification standards. Examination of
the OBD II system was not performed since Saleen Performance has demonstrated
OBD 11 compliance during certification of the Saleen $281 SC coupe. 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 Salseen 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

                                       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 2001 model—year 4.6 liter Ford

Mustang GT (p/n 178—607). The 1999 4.6 liter Ford Mustang GT equipped with the

Saleen Supercharger results in an engine identical that of the Saleen S281 SC coupe,

convertible, which is a certified new véhicle by Saleen Performance.

           Because Saleen Performance has certified the S$281 SC coupe, convertible

as a new vehicle, the certification test results have been accepted as the basis for

comparison of emissions fn the modified configuration with the applicable standards.

An examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system with the intercooled

supercharger system installed was not performed since OBD !1 compliance was

demonstrated during new vehicle certification. The staff conéludes 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—5 be issued.

                         SALEEN SUPERCHARGER
       FOR AN EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE
     SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE
                    CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS


1.   INTRODUCTION

           Saleen Performance of 9 Whatney, Irvinge, California, has appljed for an

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

the Saleen Supercharger designed for 1999 to 2001 model—year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang

GT‘s (p/n 178-667).

II. CONCLUSIONS

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

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

test results of the Saleen S281. The Saleen S281 SC coupe, convertible is a new

vehicle certified by Saleen Performance and is equivalent to a 2001 4.6 liter Ford

Mustang GT equipped with the Saleen Superohérger. The staff concludes that Saleen

Performance‘s Saleen Supercharger will not adversely affect exhaust em.issions from

the vehicles for which the exemption is requested.                             |

III. RECOMMENDATION

           The staff recomr´Čü'ends that Saleen Performance be granted an exemption for

their Saleen Supercharger for installation on 1999 to 2001 model—year 4.6 liter Ford

Mustang GT‘s (p/n 178—607).

IV. SALEEN SUPERCHARGER DESCRIPTION

           The Saleen Performance intercooled supercharger kit has been specifically

designed for installation on the 1999 to 2001 model—year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang GT (p/n


178—607). The diameter of the drive pulley is 1867 mm (6.54 inches), and the

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

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

utilizes an intercooler, upgraded fuel injectors (30 lb/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 engine 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 engine,

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 ihtercooler 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 supercharger kit instailation include the: intercooler,

supercharger, water pump (for the intercooler), intercooler water recovery tank,

upgraded fuel injfectors, fuel rail, upgraded engine control module, and other assorted

brackets and hardware.                            |

v.0        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

new vehicle (Saleen $281 SC coupe, convertible, E.0. A—324—10, engine family


                                             2.


1S3XVO4.6JDA, PC, TLEV). The final engine configuration of a 2001 Ford Mustang GT

equipped with the Saleen Supercharger is the same as the engine of the Saleen S281

SC coupe, convertible produced by Saleen Performance as a new vehicle. Saleen

Performance equips new 2001 Ford Mustang GT‘s with the Saleen Supercharger kits

and sells them as new vehicles. The certification emission results are shown below (in

.grams per mile):

                           50k .     NMOG CO        NOx     HCHO
                    Emission Level O.111 .1.0       0.1     0.0005
                    {(w. DF applied)
                           STD       0.125 3.4      0.4      0.015

                        100k         NMOG    CO     NOx     HCHO
                    Emission Level   0.143   1.4    0.2      0.001
                    (w. DF applied)
                          STD       0.156    4.2    0.6      0.018

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

certification standards. An examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD I1) system

with the intercooled superchargef system installed was not performed since OBD II

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

conduct 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.
