                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—536—5

                        Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                   of the California Vehicle Code

                                      Steeda Autosports
                Proflow Ultimate Induction Power Pack, Proflow Cold Air Intake
                                         Steeda Tuner

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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Proflow Ultimate Induction
Power Pack, the Proflow Cold Air Intake, and the Steeda Tuner, manufactured and
marketed by Steeda Autosports, 1351 NW Steeda Way, Pompano Beach, Florida 33069,
has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control
systems and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for 2015 to 2017 model year Ford Mustangs equipped with a 2.3L turbo engine.

The Proflow Ultimate Induction Power Pack (part no. 555—3205) consists of the following
main components: Conical open element air filter, air intake tubing from throttle body to
filter, a reflashed ECM (no user adjustments), and all necessary mounting hardware for
proper installation. The Proflow Cold Air Intake (part no. 555—3199) consists of the conical
open element air filter and air intake tubing from throttle body to filter. The Steeda Tuner
(part no. 388—7015) consists of a reflashed ECM with no user adjustments. The stock air
temperature sensor is retained in its stock location and orientation. No other changes are
made for proper installation. Installation of the Cold Air Intake requires the removal of
the stock air filter housing and intake air tubing. If the stock air filter housing
contains the vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions control decal, a replacement decal must
be placed in a similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Proflow
Ultimate Induction Power Pack, the Proflow Cold Air Intake, and the Steeda Tuner 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 Proflow Ultimate Induction
Power Pack, the Proflow Cold Air Intake, and the Steeda Tuner, as exempt by the Air
Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s pollution control
system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data, from the SEMA Garage,
Diamond Bar, California, on a 2015 model year Ford 2.3L Turbo Mustang certified to the
LEV 3 ULEV 70 emission standards and tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure
(SFTP USO6/SC03 (AC2 test + 20%)) test cycle.

Horsepower gain was measured at 46hp.

Test results showed that the worst case configuration, the Proflow Ultimate Induction
Power Pack, when installed on the vehicle did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the
applicable emission standards during the FTP and SFTP. This Executive Order is also
based on the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1I) testing conducted on the same test vehicle.
The Proflow Ultimate Induction Power Pack when installed on the test vehicle did not affect
the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring. Similar results would be expected
from the Proflow Cold Air Intake or the Steeda Tuner.

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
PROFLOW ULTIMATE INDUCTION POWER PACK, THE PROFLOW COLD AIR INTAKE,
AND THE STEEDA TUNER.

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 is made after the
hearing that grounds for revocation exist.
