                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—598—18

                       Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                                     Badillo Engineering
                              Ford Performance Power Pack

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 Ford Performance Power
Pack, manufactured and marketed by Badillo Engineering, 6275 Stewart Lane, Ann
Arbor, Michigan 48105, 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 Mustang equipped
with a 2.3L turbo gasoline engine.

The Ford Performance Power Pack consists of the following main components: Open
element air filter, air intake tubing from throttle body to filter, ECU upgrade without user
adjustments, and all necessary mounting hardware for proper installation. The stock
manifold air pressure sensor is retained in its stock location and orientation. No other
changes are made for proper installation. Installation of the Ford Performance Power
Pack 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 Orderis valid provided that the installation instructions for the Ford
Performance Power Pack 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 Ford Performance Power
Pack, 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 Executive Order shall not apply to any Ford Performance Power Pack 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 does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Ford Performance Power Pack may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on a 2016
model year 2.3L Ford Mustang certified to the Low Emission Vehicle III Ultra Low Emission
Vehicle 70 (LEV III ULEV 70) emission standards and modified with the Ford Performance


Power Pack. Test results showed that emission levels, met the applicable emission
standards when 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. Examination of the OBD II system showed the modification did not affect OBD II
system operation. Results from emission testing conducted at the Roush Industries‘
Emissions Laboratory, Livonia, Michigan are listed below with deterioration factors applied.
