                                  EXECUTIVE ORDER D—57—34

                         Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                    of the California Vehicle Code

                               Pertronix Performance Products
                                         JBA Headers
                             P/Ns 1689S, 1689SJS, and 1689SVJT

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 JBA Headers, manufactured
and marketed by Pertronix Performance Products (Pertronix), 440 East Arrow Highway,
San Dimas, California 91773, 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 with a
5.0L engine.

The headers are a shorty style header design, manufactured out of 14 gage mild steel or
16 gage stainless steel. The oxygen sensor, if applicable, is retained in the stock location
at a collector.   The headers may include a connecting Y—pipe that is also manufactured out
of 14 gage mild steel or 16 gage stainless steel.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the JBA Headers
will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the JBA Headers, 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 2016 model year Ford 5.0L Mustang certified to the LEV 3
ULEV 125 emission standards, modified with JBA Headers, 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.

Test results showed that the JBA Headers 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 II) testing conducted on the same test vehicle. The JBA
Headers did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II monitoring. Similar results
would be expected from the other model year Mustangs listed.

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.

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

This Executive Order shall not apply to any JBA Headers advertised, offered for sale, sold
with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate

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

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.
Executed at El Monte, California, this «_            day of September 2016.
