1998 through 2001 Ford Trucks equipped with the 7.3L diesel engineThe Stage 4 Power Module includes one electronic module and an insert for the vacuum line connected to the waste-gate actuator. The electronic module is plugged into the service port of the Ford electronic control module (ECM) and the insert is installed in the vacuum line of the waste-gate actuator (turbo models only). There are no user adjustments. The Stage 4 Power Module increases engine torque by increasing the fuel flow rate during high engine load conditions and delays the opening of the waste-gate actuator.

                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—516
                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code


                    STREET AND PERFORMANCE ELECTRONICS, INC.
                             STAGE 4 POWER MODULE

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 Stage 4 Power Module,
manufactured and marketed by Street and Performance Electronics, Inc., 304 Smokey Lane,
North Little Rock, Arkansas 72117 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the
applicable vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of
Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for 1998 through 2001 Ford Trucks equipped with the 7.3L.
diesel engine.

The Stage 4 Power Module includes one electronic module and an insert for the vacuum line
connected to the waste—gate actuator. The electronic module is plugged into the service port
of the Ford electronic control module (ECM) and the insert is installed in the vacuum line of the
waste—gate actuator (turbo models only). There are no user adjustments. The Stage 4 Power
Module increases engine torque by increasing the fuel flow rate during high engine load
conditions and delays the opening of the waste—gate actuator.

This Executive Order is valid provided the installation instructions for the Stage 4 Power
Module will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Stage 4 Power Module advertised, offered for sale,
sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate
purchaser.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Stage 4 Power Module, as exempt
by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution
control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.


    §



Street and Performance Electronics, Inc.                        Executive Order D—516
Stage 4 Power Module                                            (Page 2 of 3)




Marketing of the Stage 4 Power Module using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Stage 4 Power Module for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
Resources Board.

Exemption of the Stage 4 Power Module shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for
sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an individual device.                         ‘

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Stage 4
Power Module may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data, conducted at
Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc., Ontario, California, on a 2000 Ford F—350
with a 7.3L diesel engine, and certified to the low emission vehicle (LEV) emission standards.
Testing consisted of comparative Cold Start 505 Federal Test Procedures.

                  HC       CO     NOx         PM      Opacity
Stock             0.15     1.2    8.9        0.063    7.9%
Device            0.06     1.2     7.7       0.047     9.6%
Difference       —0.09     0.0    —~1.2     —0.016

Test results showed that tailpipe emissions during comparative Cold Start 505 Federal Test
Procedure with the Stage 4 Power Module installed on the vehicle did not cause exhaust
emissions to exceed the baseline emissions by more than the allowed limits of 10 percent or
0.1 grams per mile on hydrocarbon (HC) and oxides of nitrogen (NOx), 15 percent or 1.0
grams per mile carbon monoxide (CO), and 15 percent or 0.03 grams per mile on Particulate
Matter (PM) as specified in the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts."

This Executive Order is also based on the On Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing and opacity
testing on the same test vehicle. Test data showed that the Diesel Controller when installed
on the vehicles did not significantly affect the vehicle‘s smoke opacity or the ability to perform
its OBD 1| monitoring.

However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Street and
Performance Electronics, Inc.‘s Stage 4 Power Module may adversely affect emissions of
motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously
prescribed test procedures. 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 turbocharger
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


Streét and Performance Electronics, Inc.                                Executive Order D—516
Stage 4 Power Module                                                    (Page 3 of 3)




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
turbocharger will affect the durability of the emission control systems, Street and Performance
Electronics, Inc. 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
ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF STREET AND
PERFORMANCE ELECTRONICS, INC.‘S STAGE 4 POWER MODULE.

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
and the order may not be revoked until a determination has been made after the hearing that
grounds for revocation exist.                    L

Executed at El Monte, California, this   Q7rday of February 2001.
