 Economy, 87octane, and a 91 octane performance tune.. The wireless interface module
 is removéed from the OBD II connector when the programming has been completed. The
 ITSX, part number 4015E0O is designed to download OEM calibration updates, non— —
 emission related upgrades, and patches or fixes in the firmware. Emission—related data:
 files cannot be modified by the end user nor can other data files be added.

This Executive Order is granted based on a recent emissions test conducted on a 2011
model year 5.0L Ford Mustang, certified to the Low Emission Vehicle II Ultra Low
Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission standards, and prior submitted emission test
data generated on two Ford vehicles, 2008 model year 4.6L Mustang certified to the LEV
l ULEV emission standards and a 2007 model year 5.4L Shelby certified to the LEV II
LEV emission standards. Test results showed that emission levels, with the SF3 (prior
testing) and iTSX (recent testing), all with the 91 octane program installed, met the
applicable emission standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure (FTP) test cycie, 2008 model year Mustang only, and the Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure (SFTP USO6) test cycle, Shelby and 2011 model year Mustang.
Examination of the OBD II system showed the SF3 and iTSX 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).                          —
