                                  of the California Vehicle Code

                                         SCT LLC
SCT iTSXTSX Wireless Programming Dongle, SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor,
                           and SCT X4 Programmer

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—14—012;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the SCT iTSX/TSX Wireless
Programming Dongle, SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor, and SCT X4
Programmer, manufactured and marketed by SCT LLC, 4150 W. Church Street, Sanford,
Florida 32771, 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 2013 model year Ford gasoline vehicles as
listed in Exhibit A.

The SCT X4 Programming, part number 7015EO is a hand held programmer designed to
reprogram the FLASH memory chip located in the vehicle‘s ECU module. The X4 has
three main stages of enhancement: economy, 87 octane, and 91 octane.
Emission—related data files cannot be modified by the end user nor can other data files be
added.

The SCT iTSX/TSX Wireless Programming Dongle, part number 4015E0O is a programmer
which uses an OBD 1| wireless interface module and a smart phone or lap top to program
the vehicle‘s ECU. Available tunes are: Economy, 87 octane, and a 91 octane
performance tune. The wireless interface module is removed from the OBD II connector
when the programming has been completed. Emission—related data files cannot be
modified by the end user nor can other data files be added.

The SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor, part number 5015EO is same as the hand
held programmers, with the addition of a dash mount display for engine operating
parameters. Downloaded calibration is active with or without the dash mount display. The
SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor use the OBD II port to obtain engine operating
parameters for display. and also uses the OBD II port to display engine operating
parameters. Available tunes are: Economy, 87 octane, and a 91 octane performance
tune. Emission—related data files cannot be modified by the end user nor can other data
files be added.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the SCT
iTSX/TSX Wireless Programming Dongle, SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor, and
SCT X4 Programmer will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those submitted by the device manufacturer.


                                              3.


Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the SCT iTSX/TSX Wireless
Programming Dongle, SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor, and SCT X4
Programmer, 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 SCT iTSX/TSX Wireless Programming Dongle,
SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor, and SCT X4 Programmer 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 SCT iTSX/TSX Wireless Programming Dongle, SCT LivewireTS
Programmer and Monitor, and SCT X4 Programmer using any identification other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the SCT iTSX/TSX Wireless Programming
Dongle, SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor, and SCT X4 Programmer 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 SCT
iTSX/TSX Wireless Programming Dongle, SCT LivewireTS Programmer and Monitor, and
SCT X4 Programmer may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on prior submitted 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 on two Ford vehicles, 2008
model year 4.6L Mustang certified to the LEV II 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 device installed, met the applicable emission
standards when tested using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test
cycle, 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 programmer 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).
