The Intake Systems include an open—element air filter, filter sock (some systems),
aluminum intake pipes, and mounting hardware.

This Executive Order is based on engineering evaluation and Cold—Start CVS—75
Federal Test Procedure and On—Board Diagnostic II System testing conducted by
MAZDASPEED Performance Accessories with the Intake System.

If evidence provides the Air Resources Board with reasons to suspect that the Intake
Systems will affect the durability of the emission control system, MAZDASPEED
Performance Accessories 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 parts demonstrate adequate durability.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for the Intake
 Systems 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 Intake Systems, as exempt
by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance of the vehicle‘s
emission control system, shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Intake Systems using identification other than that shown in this
Executive Order or for an application other than that listed in this Executive Order shall
be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

Exemption of the Intake Systems shall not be construed as exemption to sell, offer for
sale, or advertise any component of the system as an individual device.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Intake Systems advertised, offered for sale,
sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle prior to or concurrent with transfer to an
ultimate purchaser.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the
Intake Systems may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the vehicle

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

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
California Code of Regulations, Title 13, Section 2222, et seq,.


Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this Executive
 Order. The Executive Order may be revoked only after a ten—day written notice of
 intention to revoke the Executive Order, in which period the holder of the Executive
 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 Executive
 Order may not be revoked until a determination is made after the hearing that grounds
 for revocation exist.

                                     EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: MAZDASPEED Performance Accessories

Name of Device: Intake Systems

       MAZDASPEED Performance Accessories (MAZDASPEED) of 27100 International Drive,
Flat Rock, Michigan 48134—9400 has applied for exemption of its Intake Systems from the
prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code. The Intake Systems are
manufactured by Advanced Engine Management, Inc. (AEM) of 2205 126" Street, Unit A,
Hawthorne, California 90250, and they will be marketed by MAZDASPEED. They are designed
for various 2003 through 2006 model—year Mazda passenger cars. These vehicles are subject
to the following standards and regulations:
1.      LEV II ULEV or higher Federal Test Procedure (FTP) exhaust emission standards
2.     Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (SFTP) exhaust emission standards
3.     LEV II or enhanced evaporative emission standards
4.     On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11) System regulations

        Grant exemption to MAZDASPEED as requested and issue Executive Order D—607.

Device Description:
       The Intake Systems in this application are similar in design and function as AEM‘s Cold
Air Systems previously exempted under D—392 series Executive Orders. The system is
designed to increase the vehicle‘s power output by introducing cooler air drawn from outside of
the engine compartment into the engine. The system consists of an open—elementair filter
(designed to be less restrictive than the stock air filter), filter sock (some systems) (slides over
the air filter and is used to prevent water sprays from saturating the air filter), air intake pipes,
and mounting brackets/hardware. The system replaces the stock air filter, filter housing,
resonator (permanently removed), and the air inlet tube.
Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
        This exemption is based on the following:
1.      SFTP and OBD II System tests on a 2003 USEPA Bin 8 (ARB—equivalent ULEV) 2.0 liter
        Ford Focus (D—392—21)
2.      SFTP and OBD I! System tests on a 2001 ULEV 2.0 liter Volkswagen Jetta (D—392—21)
3.      SFTP and OBD It System tests on a 2003 LEV 3.0 liter Lexus 18300 (D—392—21)
4.      Engineering evaluation of the impact on SFTP emissions

The SFTP certification levels of many of the vehicles in the application are low (less than 40
 percent of the standard); however, some of the vehicles have certification levels higher than 40
 percent of the standard (e.g. 43 percent for NMHC+NOx and 51 percent for CO). Through
 testing, AEM had previously shown that its intake systems do not cause the vehicles to exceed
 the SFTP standards (items 1 through 3 above). These tests were conducted on vehicles with
 certification levels higher than those of the Mazda vehicles in this application. Based on these
 tests, the vehicles in this application are not expected to exceed the SFTP standards when
 operated with the intake systems. Testing also showed no adverse impact on the vehicles‘
 OBD I1 Systems.

 5.      FTP and OBD II System tests on a 2006 LEV 11 ULEV 2.0 liter Mazda MX—5 (D—607)

 To determine the impact on FTP emissions and OBD II System, MAZDASPEED was required to
 conduct testing. Test results are summarized below:

                                        CVS—75 FTP Emissions (grams/mile)

Test vehicle —— test group 6TKXVO2.05EA (LEV II ULEV); evaporative family 6TKXRO125PMA (LEV
evap.); odometer reading 7,137 miles
Testing laboratory —— Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS) in Ontario, California.

1     Mazda‘s NMOG/NMHC ratio of 1.04 was used to calculate NMOG.
2     HCHO/NMHC ratio was not available for the test vehicle. The ratio for a 2003 2.3 liter Mazda 6
      (test group 3TKXVO2.3EJ1; ULEV) was used to calculate HCHO. A ratio of 0.016583 was used.
3     Deterioration factors (DF) for HCHO was not available for the test vehicle. The 50,000— and
      100,000—mile HCHO DFs for a 2003 2.3 liter Mazda 6 (test group 3TKXVO2.3EJ1; ULEV) was used
      for this evaluation. The 50,000— and 100,000—mile HCHO standards for the DF vehicle are 0.008
      and 0.011, respectively.
4      Mazda was allowed to state HCHO emission compliance based on historical data and did not
       submit any test results.

Because the test vehicle is a very low—emitting vehicle and conventional CVS sampling system
was used, ATDS was required to perform duplicate FTPs. NMHC and NOx emissions varied
more than 20 and 50 percent, respectively; however, all deteriorated emissions were below the
standards. Testing showed that FTP emissions of the modified vehicle do not exceed the
applicable emission standards. Also, ATDS reported that all OBD 11 System readiness
indicators set to complete with no diagnostic trouble codes when the vehicle was received for
testing and at the completion of the two FTP tests. Similar results are expected when any of the
intake systems are used. Based on this, MAZDASPEED‘s Intake Systems are not expected to
have any adverse impact on the emissions or the OBD II Systems of any of the vehicles
included in the application.
