What is CARB Exempt?
Super-powered intakes, catalytic converters and other aftermarket parts are pretty sweet — until you can’t pass your smog test. The California Air Resources Board (CARB) regulates air quality and emissions, and if your aftermarket product isn’t up to snuff, it can’t be legally sold or shipped to California addresses. Fortunately, Team Beefcake Racing sells many 50-State Legal products, rendering them lawful in California and other states where CARB laws are enforced (i.e. New York).

For a product to be considered CARB-Exempt, it must undergo extensive testing. If the product passes without harming emissions, it’s assigned a CARB executive order (EO) number. It will include a sticker, metal tag or will have the EO number stamped directly on it. These numbers must be displayed in clear view when taking your vehicle in for emissions testing in a CARB-regulated state.

If the performance upgrade component which you want to add or install on your vehicle, whether it be a supercharger, turbo unit, air intake, headers, etc. is not listed on CARB's website, it is not for legal use in California, except for off-road use only in certain circumstances, and it might cause your vehicle to fail the smog inspection.

At Beefcake Racing, we carry a number of products that are CARB approved and still provide more power and sound for your performance applications. The full selection of cold air intakes, superchargers, fuel system and engine modifications are available that will still meet the above mentioned regulations.
