 Pursuant to the authonty vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the _
 Vehicle Code; and

 Pursuantto the 'authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516
 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

 IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Ford Racing TracKey,
 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 the 2012 model year 5.0L Ford Boss Mustangs with a
 manual transmission.

. The Ford Racing TracKey, consists of the following main components: An ECM
 reflash tool, replacement air filter cartridge, and a new ignition key. The Ford Racing
 TracKey is designed to enhance the sound and feel of the 5.0L engine. No changes
 are made to the vehlcle s stock maximum horsepower level, and there are no user
 adjustments.

 This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Ford
 Racing TracKey will not recommend tuning thevehicle to specifications dn‘ferent from
 those of the device manufacturer.

 ‘Changes made to the design or operating ‘conditions of the Ford Racing TracKey, as
 exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance ofthe
 vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

 This Executive Order shall not apply to any Ford Racing TrackKey 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

 manufacturer.                                                                      —      '


                                             2.


This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on a
2012 model year 5.0L Boss Mustang modified with the Ford Racing TracKey. Test results
showed that emission levels, with the TracKey calibration activated, met the applicable
emission standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure
(FTP) and the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP—US06) test cycles.
Examination of the OBD II system showed that the TracKey did not affect OBD II system
operation. Results from emissions testing conducted at the Roush Emissions Laboratory,
located in Livonia, Michigan, and confirmed at the Air Resources Board (ARB) laboratory in
EL Monte, California are shown below (in grams per mile).

Manufacturer Name: Badillo Engineering

Name of Device: Ford Racing TrackKey

. Background:
         Badillo Engineering, 6275 Stewart Lane, Ann Arbor, Michigan 48105, has applied for
  an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code (VC) for
  the Ford Racing TracKey designed for 2012 model year 5.0L Ford Boss Mustangs
  equipped with a manual transmission.

Recommendation:
       Grant exemption to Badillo Engineering as requested, and issue Executive Order
D—598—8.           ‘

Device Description:
       The Ford Racing TracKey, consists of the following main components: . An ECM
reflash tool, replacementairfilter cartridge, anda new ignition key. The Ford Racing
TracKey is designed to enhance the sound and feel of the 5.0L engine. No changes are _
made to the vehicle‘s stock maximum horsepower level, and there are no user
adestments.

 Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
        To demonstrate the emissions impact of the Ford Racing TracKey, Badlllo
 Engineering conducted emissions testing on a 2012 model year Ford Boss Mustang,
 engine test group CFMXVO5.0VD5, certified to the low emission vehicle II ultra low
emission vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards. Emissions testing consisted of two
 Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycles and one Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP—USO06) test cycle in the baseline (silver key) and modified            6
(red key) configuration. Results from emissions testing conducted at the Roush Emissions        ;
Laboratory, located in Livonia, Michigan, are shown below (in grams per mile).       \

‘_The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
  certification standards for all tests. Examination of the OBD II system showed the
  Ford Racing TracKey did not affect OBD II system operation for all levels of operation.

  Badillo Engineering‘s Ford Racing TracKey meets the criteria for exempting general criteria
  parts for those vehicles listed in the Executive Order.

  NMOG and HCHO were calculated using the following conversion factors:
  NMOG/NMHC=1.04 and HCHO/NMHC= 0.02. Useful Life additive deterioration factors
  (dfs) used were NMOG 0.0333, CO 0.300, NOx 0.011, and HCHO 0.0. Vehicle test weight
  and horsepower target coefficients were, 4000 lbs. and 46.42, 0.1767, 0.02461
  respectively. .
