                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—182—49
                Relating to Exemptions under Sections 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                 Walker Manufacturing Company (d.b.a. Tenneco, Inc.)
                       "Series 82450 Three—Way Catalytic Converter"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(h) authorize the California Air Resources
Board and its Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391.

WHEREAS, Walker Manufacturing Company of 2701 North Dettman Road, Jackson,
Michigan 49201 has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its series 82450 new
aftermarket three—way catalytic converter (TWC) on 2001 through 2005 model—year 1.7
liter Honda Civic passenger cars (PC) equipped with manifold catalytic converters.
Series 82450 TWC will be sold as a direct fit assembly only. The applicable vehicles are
listed in Appendix D—182—49 and incorporated herein.

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and
Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief of the Mobile Source Operations Division by
Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, the Air
Resources Board finds that the above aftermarket catalytic converter complies with the
California Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations Section 2222(h). Emission performance of the catalytic converter was based
on durability bench—aging by Umicore Automotive Catalysts USA using the Air Resources
Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for 75 hours as specified in Appendix A to the
"California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," adopted on
October 25, 2007.

WHEREAS, emissions and OBD 11 compatibility tests conducted by Walker
Manufacturing Company using a 2002 model—year 1.7 liter Honda Civic (ULEV PC,
2HNXVO1.7TA5) with series 82450 TWC showed that the vehicle met the applicable
emission standards and that series 82450 TWC did not falsely cause the malfunction
indicator light to illuminate. Federal test procedure emission standards and test results in
grams per mile are shown below:

                                         NMOG            CO          NOx
       PC 100K ULEV standards            0.055           2.1         0.3

       Series 82450 test 2               0.051           0.5         0.1

WHEREAS, Walker Manufacturing Company conducted proper malfunction indicator light
illumination demonstration with series 82450 TWC on the same 2002 model—year 1.7 liter
Honda Civic and demonstrated compliance with the requirements in Section {e)(5)(B) of
the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," adopted
on October 25, 2007.


                                                39—

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Walker Manufacturing Company‘s
Series 82450 TWC is exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156
and 38391 for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix
D—182—49 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 Executive Order must be evaluated and approved by
       the Air Resources Board 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 applications other than the ones shown in this Executive Order shall be
       prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.
       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 devices.

       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 in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391.

       Walker Manufacturing Company‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic
       converter must conform to requirements in Section (h) of the "California Evaluation
       Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," adopted on October 25, 2007.

       Installation of the catalytic converter shall not cause the relocation of any air fuel
       ratio or oxygen sensors. Air fuel ratio and oxygen sensors must be installed in the
       same location, position and orientation as prescribed in the original equipment
       manufacturer‘s configurations.

       Upon installation, the catalytic converter must carry a manufacturer‘s warranty for
      five (5) years or 50,000 miles as prescribed in Section (f)(2) of the "California
       Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," adopted on
       October 25, 2007.

      Walker Manufacturing Company and its vendors may not advertise the new
      aftermarket catalytic converter as a "high flow" or "easy flow" catalytic converter or
      use any phrase that could make it appear to perform better than the original
      equipment manufacturer catalytic converter.

      Any marketing arrangement of the new aftermarket catalytic converter by a third
      party, which involves the use of packaging identification different from the ones
      described in this Executive Order, must be approved by the Air Resources Board
      prior to shipment.

order may be revoked only after a 30—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 30 days of receipt
