IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Saleen Performance

performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive
Order.

concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.
                                                                                            P

                                              13.


 This Executive Orderis granted based on emission results submitted by Saleen
 Performance in certifying their supercharged Mustang GT as a small volume new
 vehicle (Saleen S281 SC, E.0. A—324—0014, engine family 4S3XVO4.6JFA, ULEV/Bin8,
 PC). The final configuration of a 2004 Ford Mustang GT equipped with the Saleen
 Performance Supercharger Kit is the same as the Saleen S$281 SC. The certification
 emission results are shown below (in grams per mile):

                   FTP                                                   USO6

 (w. DF applied)
       STD       0.125       4.2      0.20     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 i system was not performed since Saleen Performance has demonstrated
 OBD 1 compliance during certification of the Saleen $281 SC coupe.

  if evidence provides the Air Resources Board 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
  durability of vehicle emission control systems are not, in fact, affected and/or that the
 add—on or modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

 The Air Resources Board 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.
