                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code:

                               SCT PERFORMANCE LLC

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;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the X3 Economizer, part
number 3030, manufactured and marketed by SCT Performance LLC, 976 Florida
Central Parkway, Suite 136, 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 2009
model year Ford gasoline vehicles as listed in Exhibit A.

The X3 Economizer, part number 3030 is a hand held programmer designed to
reprogram the FLASH memory chip located in the vehicle‘s ECU module. The X3
Economizer has only one stage of enhancement: a fuel economy calibration. The X3
Economizer is designed to download OEM calibration updates, non emission related
upgrades, and patches or fixes in the firmware. X3 Economizer data files cannot be
modified by the end user.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the X3
Economizer 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 X3 Economizer, 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 xX3 Economizer advertised, offered for sale,
sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

Marketing of the X3 Economizer using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the X3 Economizer 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 dpinion as to the effect the use of the 3
Economizer 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, 2007 model year 4.0L Mustang certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II
Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards and a 2008 model year
4.6L E150 Econoline Van certified to the LEV II ULEV emission standards. Test results
showed that emission levels, with the X3 Economizer program installed 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)
test cycle (Mustang only), and the Highway Fuel Economy Driving Schedule (HFEDS).
Examination of the OBD II system showed the X3 Economizer did not affect the OBD II
system operation for both vehicles. 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).
