Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and 39516 of the

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That installation of the Turbonetics Turbo System,
manufactured by Turbonetics, Inc. of 2255 Agate Court, Simi Valley, California, 93065
have been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution
control systems, and therefore, the Turbonetics Turbo System is exempt from the
prohibitions in Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for installation on the following vehicle
applications:

Kit Part Number             Vehicle Application
15168               2005-2009 model year 4.6 liter Ford Mustang w l manual
                    transmission

                    transmission

The Turbonetics Turbo System consists of a Turbonetics turbocharger assembly rated
at a maximum boost of 8.0 pounds per square inch. The kit also includes an open
element air filter (4.0 liter Ford Mustangs only), replacement fuel injectors, exhaust
tubing, intake tubing, intercooler, and a SCT Uploader with no user adjustments or
download capabilities. The SCT Uploader plugs into the On-Board Diagnostic (OBD) II
port under the dash.

This Executive Order is granted based on previously emissions test data generated on
a 2007 model year (MY) 4.0 liter Ford Mustang (test group 7FMXV04.0VBR) certified to
the Low Emission Vehicle II Ultra Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II ULEV) emission
standards. Test results on the Ford Mustang showed that emission levels, with
Turbonetics, I n c h Turbonetics Turbo System installed, met the applicable emission
standards when tested using the Cold Start Federal Test Procedure and Supplemental
Federal Test Procedure US06 test cycle. Examination of the OBD II system showed
that the Turbonetics Turbo System did not affect OBD II system operation.


                                                                           -   -   -   -   --   --

the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected andlor that the add-on or
modified parts demonstrate adequate durability.

Turbo System do not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications different from
those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Turbonetics Turbo System,
as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the
vehicles' emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

this Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order

offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with
transfer to an ultimate purchaser.
