IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Performance Upgrade

different from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Performance Upgrade Kits,
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 Performance Upgrade Kits advertised,
offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a new motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

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
Performance Upgrade Kits 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 a
2016 model year Ford Focus RS modified with the Performance Upgrade Kit. Test
results showed that emission levels, with the Performance Upgrade Kit 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 Performance Upgrade Kits did
not affect OBD II system operation. Results from emissions testing conducted at the
SEMA Garage, Diamond Bar, California, are shown below, in grams per mile.
