Package, Stage 2+ Package and the Accessport V3 Programmer, manufactured and
marketed by Cobb Tuning, 2311 West Rundberg Lane, Suite 500, Austin, Texas 78758,

The Stage 1 Package consists of the following main components: Direct fit air filter
cartridge and a reflashed ECM (no user adjustments). The Stage 2 Package consists of a
conical open element air filter with an air intake tube, intercooler, and a reflashed ECM (no
user adjustments). The Stage 2+ Package consists of a conical open element air filter with
an air intake tube, intercooler, catalyst back exhaust system, and a reflashed ECM (no user
adjustments).The Accessport V3 Programmer consists of a reflashed ECM with no user
adjustments. The stock air temperature sensor is retained in its stock location and


orientation. No other changes are made for proper installation. Installation of the new air
intake requires the removal of the stock air filter housing and intake air tubing. If the
stock air filter housing contains the vehicle‘s tune—up & emissions control decal, a
replacement decal must be placed in a similar location.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Stage 1
Package, Stage 2 Package, Stage 2+ Package and the Accessport V3 Programmer will not
recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from those of the vehicle
manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Stage 1 Package, Stage 2
Package, Stage 2+ Package and the Accessport V3 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 exemption is issued based on submitted emissions test data, from the SEMA Garage,
Diamond Bar, California, on a 2015 model year Ford 2.3L Turbo Mustang certified to the
LEV 3 ULEV 70 emission standards, modified with Stage 2 Package, and tested using the
Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) test cycle and the Supplemental Federal
Test Procedure (SFTP USO6/SC03 (AC2 test + 20%)) test cycle.

Horsepower gain was measured at 61hp.

Test results showed that the worst case configuration, the Stage 2 Package, when installed
on the vehicle did not cause exhaust emissions to exceed the applicable emission
standards during the FTP and SFTP. This Executive Order is also based on the On—Board
Diagnostic II (OBD II) testing conducted on the same test vehicle. The Stage 2 Package
when installed on the test vehicle did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform its OBD II
monitoring. Similar results would be expected from the other kits listed.

The Air Resources Board reserves the right in the future to review this Executive Order 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.

ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE
STAGE 1 PACKAGE, STAGE 2 PACKAGE, STAGE 2+ PACKAGE AND THE
ACCESSPORT V3 PROGRAMMER .

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be made with
respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other oral or written communication.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of intention to revoke the order, in
which period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the
proposed revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of
