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 Power Pulse Cold Air
Intake and HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly,       manufactured and marketed by Racing
Beat,    1291 Hancock Street, Anaheim,    California   92807 have 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 the 1990—1993 model—year,       1.6 liter Mazda Miata     (p/n‘s 56505
& 56500).

The Racing Beat Power Pulse Cold Air Intake includes the following main
components:     cold air intake duct,    reusable air filter,   and hardware.    The
HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly includes the following main components:             open—
element reusable air filter,      airflow meter adapter,   and hardware.


This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for
the Racing Beat Power Pulse Cold Air Intake and HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly
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 Racing Beat Power
Pulse Cold Air Intake and/or HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly,         as exempt by the Air
Resources Board,     which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s
pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Racing Beat Power Pulse Cold Air Intake and HighFlow Air
Inlet Assembly using any identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or marketing of the Racing Beat intake kits 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

RACING BEAT                                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—450
POWER PULSE COLD AIR INTAKE AND                           (Page 2 of 3)
HIGHFLOW AIR INLET ASSEMBLY


This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use
of the Racing Beat Power Pulse Cold Air Intake and HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly
may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle
manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on a determinations that the Racing Beat
Power Pulse Cold Air Intake and HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly will not adversely
affect tailpipe emissions when tested under the Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure.  No systems that affect the Cold Start CVS—75 or running loss
emissions are bypassed in installing the Racing Beat Power Pulse Cold Air
Intake and HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly.  However, the ARB finds that
reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Racing Beat intake kits
may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under
conditions outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test
procedures.    Accordingly, the ARB 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 resuilts
demonstrate that the Racing Beat Power Pulse Cold Air Intake and HighFlow Air
Inlet Assembly adversely affect 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 ARB with reason to suspect that the Racing Beat
Power Pulse Cold Air Intake and HighFlow Air Inlet Assembly will affect the
durability of the emission control systems, Racing Beat shall be required to
submit durability data to show that the durability of the vehicle emission
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 ARB 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 THE RACING BEAT POWER PULSE COLD AIR INTAKE AND HIGHFLOW AIR INLET
ASSEMBLY.


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


RACING BEAT                                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—450
POWER PULSE COLD AIR INTAKE AND                               (Page 3 of 3)
HIGHFLOW AIR INLET ASSEMBLY


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 El Monte,   California,   this   Z’        day of March 1998.
