                                  State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—182—34
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                          Walker Manufacturing Company
                    "Three—way Catalytic Converter Series 200100"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156, and Title 13, California Code of Regulations
(hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(h), authorize the California Air Resources Board (ARB) and
its Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27156.

WHEREAS, Walker Manufacturing Company, a division of Tenneco Automotive, of 2701
North Dettman Road, Jackson, Michigan 49201, has applied to the ARB for exemption from
the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 to market their new aftermarket series
200100 three—way catalytic converter (TWC) on 2001 and older trucks and vans,
manufactured by Daimler Chrysler Corporation and equipped with an on—board diagnostic II
(OBD—I!) system, as specified in Appendix D—182—34 and incorporated herein. The
application coverage excludes vehicles equipped with a warm—up catalyst, as well as
vehicles certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) or more stringent emission
standards. The TWC will be used in single underbody vehicle applications. The series
200100 TWC may also be installed on non—OBD I! vehicles (1995 and older) similar in engine
and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D—182—34.

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and Safety
Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Operations Division by Health and
Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the ARB finds that the above
aftermarket catalytic converter complies with the California Vehicle Code Section 27156 and
Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h). The emissions performance of the
catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by Delphi Engine and Chassis
Systems using the ARB—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycie for 100 hours, as specified for
category 2 vehicles in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original
Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped With On—Bo@rd Diagnostic II (OBD I1) Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing and Development Services
(ATDS), Ontario, California, with Series 200100 TWC installed on a 1999 5.9L Dodge
Durango, test group XCRXAO360H31, showed that use of Series 200100 TWC results in
emission levels that meet the Transitional Low Emission Vehicle (TLEV) or less stringent
emission standards.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified
in Appendix A subject to the following conditions:

      1.     No changes are permitted to the catalytic converter as described in the
             application for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converter or any of its
             components, and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and
             approved by the ARB prior to marketing in California.

             Marketing of the catalytic converter using identifications other than those shown
             in the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the
             catalytic converter for application other than the ones shown in this Executive
             Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the ARB.
             Exemption of this product shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer
             for sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic converter as individual

             Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Walker
             Manufacturing Company, its principals, agents, employees, distributors,
             dealers, or other representatives must include the disclaimer that the Executive
             Order or the exemption it provides is not an endorsement or approval of any
             emission reduction claims for the catalytic converter and is only a finding that |
             the catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section

             Walker Manufacturing Company‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic
             converter must conform to requirements in Paragraphs | and X of the "Optional
             Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original Equipment Catalytic
             Converters Equipped with On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD !I) Systems."

             Installation of the catalytic converter shall not cause the relocation of an oxygen
             sensor. Oxygen sensors must be installed in the same location and orientation
             as prescribed in the original equipment manufacturer configurations.

             Upon installation, the catalytic conver_teif´Čüust carry a manufacturer‘s warranty
             for 50,000 miles on the substrates and 50,000 miles or five years on the shell
             and end pipes.

             Walker Manufacturing:Company and its vendors may not advertise the new .
             aftermarket catalytic converter as a "ultra clean air, high flow or easy flow"
             catalytic converter or use any phrase that could make it appear to perform
             better than an OEM catalytic converter.



Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after ten day written notice of intention to revoke it, during 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 is made, after the hearing, that
grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this" 1Z77day of March 2004.
