                                    State of California
                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD


                              EXECUTIVE ORDER 0-487-3

                      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-45-9;

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, Napa, 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 California Vehicle Code for the Ford Explorer truck applications
listed below:

Model-Year         Model       Ena. Disp.      Kit Part Number       Kit Pulley Size (in.)

2000-200 1        Explorer        5.OL              ZD5555                   2.6

The X-Charger Supercharger Kit includes the following main components: supercharger
blower, upgraded fuel pump, longer serpentine drive belt, spark plug wires, and
associated hardware. The diameter of the supercharger pulley is 2.6 inches. All other
emission-related components are in the stock location relative to the throttle body: 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.


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

Marketing of this device 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 Air
Resources Board.

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

This exemption is issued based on previously submitted emissions test data for the
X-Charger Supercharger Kit installed on 1996 through 1999 model year 5.OL Ford
Explorers and covered under Executive Order D-487, issued on July 29, 1999. That
supercharger kit is identical to the one for the 2000 and 2001 model year 5.OL Ford
Explorers. The exhaust emission measurements listed for Executive Order D-487 are
as follows:

Federal Test Procedure:

                                                NMOG          -
                                                              CO       -
                                                                       NOX
Standards (glmi)                                0.100        4.4        0.4
Device (glmi) with d f s applied                0.082        1.4        0. I

The test results show that the X-Charger Supercharger Kit when installed on a
representative Explorer vehicle will not likely cause exhaust emissions to exceed the
applicable emission standards during the Federal Test Procedure. This Executive .
Order is also based on specific On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing previously
conducted on the modified test vehicle for Executive Order D-487. 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 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 THE X-CHARGER
SUPERCHARGER KIT.
