                                     State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—182—50
                Relating to Exemptions under Sections 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                 Walker Manufacturing Company (d.b.a. Tenneco, Inc.)
                     "Series 82440 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 82440 new
aftermarket three—way catalytic converter (TWC) on 1996 through 2000 model—year 1.6
liter Honda Civic passenger cars equipped with manifold catalytic converters and having
engine codes D16Y5 and D16Y7. Series 82440 TWC will be sold as a direct fit assembly
only. The applicable vehicles are listed in Appendix D—182—50 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 of a similar catalyst 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, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by Walker
Manufacturing Company using a vehicle weight classification and exhaust configuration
similar to those listed in Appendix D—182—50 and certified to ultra low—emission vehicle
emission standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Order D—182—49, it was
determined that installation of series 82440 TWC on vehicles listed in Appendix D—182—50
meets the requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Walker Manufacturing Company‘s series
82440 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—50 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.


                                              _7

     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 seil, 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 oxygen
     sensors. 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 involvesthe use of packaging identification different from the ones
     described in this Executive Order, must be approved by the Air Resources Board
     prior to shipment.

    Walker Manufacturing Company, its associates, vendors, other businesses and
    individuals associated with Walker Manufacturing Company may not sell or supply
    new aftermarket catalytic converter substrates to a third party to be assembled in a
    different facility and marketed under this Executive Order without approval from the
    Air Resources Board.

10. Walker Manufacturing Company shall comply with the quality control procedures
    and reporting requirements in Section (f)(5) of the "California Evaluation Procedures
    for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," adopted on October 25, 2007.
