                             AIR RESOURCES BOARD



                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—450—1
                  Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the Vehicle Code


                                 RACING BEAT
        HIGH FLOW AIR INTAKE ASSEMBLY AND POWER PULSE COLD AIR INTAKE


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 High Flow Air Intake
Assembly or Power Pulse Cold Air Intake, manufactured and marketed by Racing
Beat, 4789 East Wesley Drive, Anaheim, California 92807, has been found not to
reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution control systems
and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code for 1994 through 1997 Mazda Miatas.

The High Flow Air Intake Assembly includes the following main components:
reusable open element air filter, aluminum intake duct, and assorted brackets
& hardware.

The Power Pulse Cold Air Intake includes the following main components:    cold
air intake duct, chrome intake tubing, and assorted brackets & hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for
the High Flow Air Intake Assembly and/or Power Pulse Cold Air Intake 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 High Flow Air Intake
Assembly or Power Pulse Cold Air Intake, 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 High Flow Air Intake Assembly and/or Power Pulse Cold Air
Intake using any identification other than that shown in this Executive Order
or marketing of the High Flow Air Intake Assembly and/or Power Pulse Cold Air
Intake 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 High Flow Air Intake Assembly and Power Pulse Cold
Air Intake 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 the use
of the High Flow Air Intake Assembly and Power Pulse Cold Air Intake may have
on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.


RACING BEAT                                          EXECUTIVE ORDER D—450—1
HIGH FLOW AIR INTAKE ASSEMBLY AND                         (Page 2 of 2)
POWER PULSE COLD AIR INTAKE



This Executive Order is granted based on examination of the On—Board
Diagnostic II (OBD II) system of the vehicle in the modified configuration,
and an engineering evaluation of the emissions impact of the device if
measured using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.  However, the ARB
finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Racing Beat
High Flow Air Intake Assembly or Power Pulse Cold Air Intake may adversely
affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the
parameters of the CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.  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 results demonstrate that the Racing Beat High Flow
Air Intake Assembly or Power Pulse Cold Air Intake 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 ARB with reason to suspect that the High Flow Air Intake
Assembly or Power Pulse Cold Air Intake will affect the durability of the
emission control system, 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 RACING BEAT‘S HIGH FLOW AIR INTAKE ASSEMBLY OR POWER PULSE COLD
AIR INTAKE.

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
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    3!7'/'day of July 1999.
