                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—487—1

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code


                                   X—SPEC Performance
                                X—Charger 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 X—Charger
Supercharger Kit manufactured and marketed by X—SPEC Performance of 1027 Bell
Lane, Nape, CA 94558, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of required
motor vehicle pollution control devices and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions
of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the 4.0L Ford Motor Company Explorer
vehicles listed in Exhibit A.

The X—Charger Supercharger Kit includes the following main components: Magnuson
supercharger unit, intake manifold, open—element air intake filter and tubing, and
high—output fuel pump (for pre—2004 models only). The following modifications are
done to subject vehicles: the stock airbox is replaced with the open—element filter
assembly, the stock intake manifold is replaced with the X—SPEC manifold, and the
stock fuel pump is replaced with a high flow, high pressure unit fue! pump unit. All
other emission—related components are in the stock location relative to the throttle
body. The supercharger pulley specification is 2.3". All crankshaft pulleys are stock
and maximum boost is limited to 6 psi.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any X—Charger 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.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the X—Charger
Supercharger Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.


                                                                              Connn encemen ol   2




                                            2.


Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the devices, as exempted by the
Air Resources Board (ARB), that adversely affect the performance of a vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of these devices using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other than those listed in
this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of
these devices may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data from an independent
laboratory on a 2004 model year Ford Motor Company Explorer vehicle (Test Group
4FMXTO4.02K6) certified to the Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (ULEV) and Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) standards:

Test results showed that the X—Charger Supercharger Kit when installed on the vehicle
did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission standards during
the Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure or SFTP cycles. This Executive Order is
also based on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD !!) testing conducted on the same test
vehicle. The X—Charger Supercharger Kit when installed on the test vehicle did not
affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring.

In addition, 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
