                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—473—7

                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code—

                                  Saleen Performance
                          Saleen Performance 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 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 Saleen Performance
Supercharger Kit, produced and marketed by Saleen Performance, 76 Fairbanks, 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 vehicles listed in the attached Exhibit A.

The Saleen Performance Supercharger Kit includes the following main components:
water pump, intercooler, Lysholm Twin Screw supercharger, modified engine control
unit, assorted brackets, and hardware. The supercharger is driven by the stock
crankshaft pulley, and the supercharger pulley diameter is 3.125 inches. Maximum
boost is 8.5 psi at 6,000 rpm.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Saleen
Performance Supercharger Kit 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 Performance
Supercharger Kit, 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 Performance Supercharger Kit
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 Saleen Performance Supercharger Kit using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Saleen Performance
Supercharger Kit 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
Saleen Performance Supercharger Kits 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, E.0. A—324—0012, engine family 3S3XVO4.6JDA, TLEV, PC).
The final configuration of a 2003 Ford Mustang GT equipped with the Saleen
Performance Supercharger Kit is the same as the Saleen $281 SC. The certification
emission results are shown below (in grams per mile):

                       50K      NMOG         CO      NOx      HCHO
                 Emission Level 0.111        0.9     0.1       n/a
                 (w. DF applied)
                       STD         0125      3.4     0.4      0.015

                      100k      NMOG         CO      NOx HCHO
                 Emission Level 0126         1.0     01—  nwa
                 (w. DF applied)                       —
                       STD         0156      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 II compliance during certification of the Saleen $281 SC coupe. Therefore, based
on the test results, the staff concludes that the Saleen Performance Supercharger Kit
meets the criteria for exempting general criteria parts. However, the ARB finds that
reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Saleen Performance Supercharger
Kit 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 Performance Supercharger Kit 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 Performance Supercharger Kit 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.

If evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Saleen Performance
Supercharger Kit will affect the durability of emission control systems, Saleen
Performance shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durabiltity 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 SALEEN
PERFORMANCE‘S SALEEN PERFORMANCE SUPERCHARGER KIT.

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 andthe order may not be revoked until a determination is made
after the hearing that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this      /87’7/      day of February, 2003.
