                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—489
                     Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                                of the Vehicle Code


                          REVOLUTIONS MOTORSPORTS, INC.
                WEAPON*R COMPETITION PRODUCTS HYPER INTAKE SYSTEM


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 Weapon*R Competition
Products Hyper Intake System, manufactured and marketed by Revolutions
Motorsports, Inc., of 480 Collins Avenue, #C, Colma, California 94014, 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 the Acura and Honda vehicles listed in Exhibit
A.

The Weapon*R Competition Products Hyper Intake System includes the following
main components:  open—element reusable air filter, intake system tubing,
assorted brackets, and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for
the Weapon*R Competition Products Hyper Intake System 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 Weapon*R Competition
Products Hyper Intake System, 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 Weapon*R Competition Products Hyper Intake System using any
identification other than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of
the Weapon*R Competition Products Hyper Intake System 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 Weapon*R
Competition Products Hyper Intake System 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 Weapon*R Competition Products Hyper Intake System may have on any
warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

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 Revolutions
Motorsports Weapon*R Competition:—Products Hyper Intake System may adversely
affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the


REVOLUTIONS MOTORSPORTS                                   EXECUTIVE ORDER D—489
WEAPON*R COMPETITION PRODUCTS HYPER INTAKE SYSTEM                   (Page 2 of 2)

paramfiéeters 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 Revolutions
Motorsports Weapon*R Competition Products Hyper Intake System 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 Weapon*R Competition
Products Hyper Intake System will affect the durability of the emission
control system, Revolutions Motorsports 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 REVOLUTIONS MOTORSPORTS WEAPON*R COMPETITION PRODUCTS HYPER
INTAKE SYSTEM.

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     a     day of November 1999 .

                     SAFARI 4X4 INTERCOOLED TURBOCHARGER SYSTEM


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 Safari 4X4
Intercooled Turbocharger System, manufactured and marketed by Safari 4X4,     1775
N. Surveyor Avenue, Simi Valley, California 93063, 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 the 1995 through 1997 Toyota Landcruiser and Lexus LX450.

The Safari 4X4 Intercooled Turbocharger System includes the following main
components: intercooler, Garrett TO4E turbocharger, add—on engine control
unit, assorted brackets,     and hardware. Maximum boost is 4 psi.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for

SAFARI 4X4 INTERCOOLED TURBOCHARGER SYSTEM                 (Page 2 of 3)


This Executive Order is granted based on emissions in the modified
configuration using the Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure and
examination of the On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) system.  Results from
emissions testing conducted at the Automobile Club of Southern California,          of
Los Angeles, California,    are shown below (in grams per mile):

                 Raw              NMHC     CO        NOx
              Emission Level      0 .226   2 .109    0 .212

                 50k              NMHC     CO        NOx
                            DF    1.169    1.406     1.577
              Emission Level      0 .264   2 .966    0 .335
              {w. DF applied)
                           STD    0 .32    4.4       0 .7

                 100k             NMHC     CoO       NOx
                            DF    1.426    2 .024    2 .456
              Emission Level      0 .322   4 .270    0 .522
              (w. DF applied)
                           STD    0 .46    6 .4      0 .96

The odometer reading on the test vehicle was 58,160 miles.  Because the
emissions of the test vehicle were compared to the certification standards,
the 50,000 mile emissions were not derived through the application of
deterioration factors.     The "raw" emission values were derived by dividing the
as—received test data by the 50,000 mile deterioration factors.  The 100,000
mile emissions were then derived by applying the appropriate deterioration
factors to the "raw" emissions.  The emission test results in the modified
configuration were below the applicable certification standards as in
accordance with the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts".
Examination of the OBD II system showed the Safari 4X4 Intercooled
Turbocharger System does not affect OBD II operation.  Therefore, based on the
test results, the staff concludes that the Safari 4X4 Intercooled Turbocharger
System meets the criteria for exempting general criteria parts as specified in
the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts".  However, the ARB
finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Safari 4X4
Intercooled Turbocharger System 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 Safari 4X4 Intercooled Turbocharger System
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 Safari 4X4
Intercooled Turbocharger System will affect the durability of the emission
control system, Safari 4X4 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.

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 SAFARI 4X4‘S SAFARI 4X4 INTERCOOLED TURBOCHARGER SYSTEM.

No claim of any kind,    such as "Approved by the Air Resources Board", may be
