                 Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                            of the Vehicle Code .


                     GREDDY PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.
                           MAZDA MIATA TURBO KIT


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—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Mazda Miata Turbo
Kit (Part Number 323814) consisting of the following main parts: Mitsubishi
turbocharger, exhaust manifold, front pipe, turbo intake and compression
pipes, secondary fuel pressure regulator, and Airinx air filter,
manufactured by Trust Company, Ltd. of 3155—5 Odai, Shibayama—machi, Sanbu—
gun, Chiba 289—16 Japan and marketed by GReddy Performance Products, Inc. of
9 Vanderbilt, Irvine, CA 92718 has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control system and,
therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code for installation on 1990 through 1993 1.6L Mazda Miata vehicles except
those equipped with anti—lock braking systems (ABS).

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions
for the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit will not recommend tuning the vehicle to
specifications different from those submitted by GReddy Performance
Products, Inc.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Mazda Miata Turbo
Kit, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the
performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this
executive order.

Marketing of the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit using any identification other than
that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit
for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.
Exemption of the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit shall not be construed as exemption
to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of the kit as an
individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that
the use of the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit may have on any warranty either
expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


GREDDY PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.                     EXECUTIVE ORDER D—397
MAZDA MIATA TURBO KIT                                 (Page 2 of 2)

This Executive Order is granted based on emissions tests conducted in
accordance with Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.     However, the Air
Resources Board finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of
the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles
when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the previously
prescribed test procedures. Accordingly, the Air Resources Board reserves
the right to conduct additional emission tests, in the future, as such tests
are developed, that will more adequately measure emissions from all cycle
phases. If such test results demonstrate that the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit
adversely affects emissions during off—cycle conditions (defined as those
conditions which are beyond the parameters of the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal
Test Procedure), this Executive Order shall be effectively rescinded as of
the date the test results are validated. Further, if such test results or
other evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reason to suspect that
the Mazda Miata Turbo Kit will affect the durability of the emission
control, G@Reddy Performance Products, Inc. shall be required to submit
durabi]ity data to show that the durability of the vehicle emissions control
system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or modified part
demonstrates adequate durability.

In addition to the foregoing, 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.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY
CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED
BENEFITS OF GREDDY PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC‘S MAZDA MIATA TURBO KIT.

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 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 the
request and the order may not be revoked until a determination after hearing
that grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at E1 Monte, California, this   &       da     April 1996.
