IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Ford Racing 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

air filter, Ford GT350 Mustang air intake tubing from throttle body to filter (includes Ford
factory installed HCT trap in air intake tubing), ECU upgrade without user adjustments,

pressure sensor is retained in its stock location and orientation. Optional kit parts are:
Ford GT350 electronic throttle body, Ford GT350 intake manifold, and an optional 4.09:1

ultimate purchaser.

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

model year 5.0L Ford Mustang certified to the Low Emission Vehicle III Ultra Low Emission
Vehicle 125 (LEV III ULEV 125) emission standards and modified with the Ford Racing
Power Pack including all optional parts. 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
