I.                 DUC.

        Maremont Corporation of Carol Stream, I]iinois, has applied for an

exemption to market the Walker Manufacturing two—way catalytic converter

series 15111 and 15112 with new part numbers 28711 and 28712 in accordance

with the California regulations on new aftermarket catalytic converters.

II.     CONCLUSION
        The Walker Manufacturing two—way catalytic converter meets the

criteria set forth in Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13, California

Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h) and was granted exemption in our E.0.

D—182—3 dated August 23, 1989 for application on vehicles not exceeding

5,000 lbs and 6.6 liters.

III.    RECOMMENDATION
        The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

that Executive Order No. D—184—4 be issued, permitting the advertisement,

sales and installation of the new aftermarket three—way catalytic

converter.

IV.          ICE     DES   ON

        The Walker Manufacturing two—way catalytic converter consists of

honeycomb type substrate coated with platinum and palladium and enclosed in

an outer shell or container of stainless steel.


           The Walker Manufacturing two—way catalytic converter uses materials

and construction similar to the original equipment manufacturers.      The

catalytic converter is sold with installation instructions and kits as shown

in the Maremont application catalog.     The converter is also sold with a two

year or 25,000 miles warranty on the substrates and five years or 50,000

miles on the container or shell.

v.         EYALUATION
          © Walker Manufacturing provided test data for the two—way catalytic

converter.     The tests were conducted by Olson Engingering, Inc., Huntington

Beach, California.     Two CVS—75 emission tests were conducted on the test

vehicle with the converter installed and two CVS—75 tests were conducted

with exhaust backpressure simulator.     The mileage accumulation vehicles and

the test vehicle had the test weights of 5,000 lbs and engine displacement

of 6.6 liters.     The conversion efficiencies for the two—way converter which

Maremont intends to market as part numbers 28711 and 28712 for maximum

vehicle weight of 5,000 lbs and 6.6 liter engines are 81.8% for HC and 92.9%

for CO.     The conversion efficiencies meet the requirements of the

California regulations.

           The staff based. the evaluation of the new aftermarket two—way

converter on the test data from Olson Engineering, Inc.
