                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                           SF3 Power Flash, Part No. 3015E0O

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—02—003;

T IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the SF3 Power Flash, part
number 3015EO, manufactured and marketed by SCT, LLC, 975 Florida Central
Parkway, Suite 1900, Longwood, Florida 32750, 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 applicable 1996 to 2008
model year Ford gasoline vehicles as listed in Exhibit A.

The SF3 Power Flash, part number 301 5EO is a hand held programmer designed to
reprogram the FLASH memory chip located in the vehicle‘s ECU module. The SF3
Power Flash has three main stages of enhancement: economy, 87 octane, and 91
octane. The SF3 Power Flash is designed to download OEM calibration updates,
non emission related upgrades, and patches or fixes in the firmware. SF3 Power Flash
data files cannot be modified by the end user.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the SF3 Power
Flash will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those
submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the SF3 Power Flash, 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 SF3 Power Flash advertised, offered for Sa|e,
sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the SF3 Power Flash using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the SF3 Power Flash for an application other than those
listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from
the Air Resources Board.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the SF3
Power Flash 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 two
Ford vehicles, 2008 model year 4.6L Mustang certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II
Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards and a 2007 model year
5.4L Shelby certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II LEV)
emission standards. Test results showed that emission levels, with the SF3 Power Flash
(91 octane) program installed, met the applicable emission standards when tested using
the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle, Mustang only, and the
Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycle, Shelby only.
Examination of the OBD II system showed the SF3 Power Flash did not affect OBD II
system operation. Results from emissions testing conducted at Automotive Testing and
Development Services, Inc., located in Ontario, California, are shown below (in grams
per mile with deterioration factors applied).

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.

ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
