                      Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                 of the California Vehicle Code

                                 Mountune LLC
                  MP215 Upgrade Package and Induction Upgrade Kit

Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board (ARB) by Vehicle Code (VC)
Section 27156; 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 MP215 Upgrade Package
and Induction Upgrade Kit, manufactured and marketed by Mountune LLC, 11251 Young
River Avenue, Fountain Valley, California 92708, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt
from the prohibitions of VC Section 27156 for 2014 and 2015 model year Ford Fiesta ST
originally equipped with a 1.6L turbocharged engine.

Mountune LLC‘s MP215 Upgrade Package and Induction Upgrade Kit includes the
following main components: new upper and lower air box, flat panel air filter cartridge,
and a new electronic control unit calibration with no user adjustments. Induction
Upgrade Kit does not include the calibration, airintake modification only. Installation of
the MP215 Upgrade Package and Induction Upgrade Kit requires the removal of
the stock air filter housing, 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 MP215
Upgrade Package and Induction Upgrade Kit 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 MP215 Upgrade Package
and Induction Upgrade Kit, as exempt by ARB, 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 MP215 Upgrade Package and Induction
Upgrade Kit 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 MP215 Upgrade Package and Induction Upgrade Kit using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the MP215
Upgrade Package and Induction Upgrade Kit for an application other than those listed in
this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from ARB.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect use of the
MP215 Upgrade Package and Induction Upgrade Kit may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


                                               7.


This Executive Order is granted based on submitted emission test data generated on a
2014 model year Ford Fiesta ST, modified with the MP215 Upgrade Package. Test
results showed that emission levels, with the MP215 Upgrade Package 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. Examination of the OBD II system showed the MP215 Upgrade Package did
not affect OBD II system operation. Shown below (in grams per mile) are results from
emissions testing conducted by the Auto Club Emissions Laboratory, located in Diamond
Bar, California.

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.
