                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—536—1

                          Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                       of the Vehicle Code

                                     Steeda Autosports, Inc.
                                     ST—460 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 Sectidn 39516 of
the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

T 1S ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the ST—460 Supercharger Kit,
manUufactured and marketed by Steeda Autosports, Inc., 1351 NW Steeda Way, Pompano
Beach, Florida 33069 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 1999 through 2003 Ford Mustangs equipped with a 4.6L engine.

The S$T—460 Supercharger Kit includes a Paxton, Novi 2000, supercharger with a 6.5 inch
diameter pulley (8 psi. max. boost), an open element air filter to replace the stock closed
element filter, a new set of fuel injectors rated at 30 Ibs. to replace the stock fuel injectors, a
new high volume fuel pump, and a new calibration chip which is installed into the service port
of the electronic control module. The stock crankshaft pulley is utilized.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Steeda Autosports, lnc.. ‘s ST—460 Supercharger
Kit that is 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 Orderis valid provided that the installation instructions for the ST—460
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 ST—460 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.

Marketing of the ST—460 Supercharger Kit using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the ST—460 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. Exemption of the ST—460 Supercharger Kit 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 ST—460
Supercharger Kit may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emissions test data which showed that
the ST—460 Supercharger Kit did not adversely affect tailpipe emissions during a Cold—Start
CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. A 2001 model—year California—certified Ford Mustang
certified to the Transitional Low—Emission Vehicle (TLEV) emission standards was used as the
test vehicle.

                    NMOG CO       —NOx       HCHO
Standards           0.125 3.4     0.4~       0.015
Device w/df         0.096 112      01        0.002

Results showed modified emission levels with deterioration factors (df) applied were below the
vehicle‘s applicable emission standards. This Executive Order is also based on an On—Board
Diagnostic II (OBD II) test conducted on the same vehicle. Test data showed that the
ST—460 Supercharger Kit when installed on the vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to
perform its OBD II monitoring.

The ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the ST—460 Supercharger            _
Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside
the parameters of the Cold—Start 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 ST—460 Supercharger Kit adversely affect 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 ST—460 Supercharger Kit will affect the
durability of the emission control system, Steeda Autosports, 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.
