     Stream, Illinois 60188, has applied for exemption for their new aftermarket

     catalytic converters under the California regulations for new aftermarket

     catalytic converters.   In addition, they have applied for an exemption

     allowing the use of their three—way and three—way plus oxidation converters

     in two—way applications.

             Emissions data submitted show that the Maremont catalytic converters

     meet the requirements of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13, California

     Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).   Based on the above, the staff

     recommends that the exemption be granted as requested.

               FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 AND
              TITLE 13, CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS, SECTION 2222(h)


     I.      INTRODUCTION

             Maremont Corporation of Carol Stream, Illincis, has applied for an

     exemption for their new aftermarket catalytic converters, which are shown in

     Table 1 of the Appendix, in accordance with the California regulations on

     new aftermarket catalytic converters.   In addition, they have applied for

     an exemption to allow the use of their three—way and three—way plus

     oxidation converters in two—way applications.

     II.     CONCLUSION
             The applicant has submitted all the required information and based

     on the submitted exhaust emissions test data, the staff concludes that the

     catalytic converters meet the criteria set forth in Vehicle Code Section

     27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).

     III.      COMM       TION

             The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

     that Executive Order No. D—184—5 be issued, permitting the advertisement,

     sales and installation of the new aftermarket catalytic converters.

     IV.     DEVICE DESCRIPTION

             The Maremont catalytic converters consist of honeycomb type

     substrates coated with platinum and palladium plus rhodium and enclosed in

     an outer shell or container of stainless steel.   The three—way plus

     oxidation catalytic converter additionally incorporates an air injection

     tube between two substrates.


        The Maremont Corporation catalytic converters use materials and

construction similar to the original equipment manufacturers.    The catalytic

converters are sold with installation instructions and kits as shown in the

application catalog.    They are also sold with a two year or 25,000 mile

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

or shell.

v.              V      TION
        Maremont Corporation provided test data for the catalytic

converters.   The tests were conducted by Automotive Testing and Development

Services, Inc. (formerly Olson Engineering, 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 tests were conducted following the

25,000 miles mileage accumulation on each of the two test converters.       The

mileage accumulation vehicles had test weights and engine displacement equal

or higher than the test vehicle.

        Exemption for each converter application is limited to the actual

test weight and engine size of either the mileage accumulation vehicle or

the test ("slave") vehicle, whichever has lower parameters.     The conversion

efficiencies of the converters, maximum vehicle weight and maximum engine

displacement are shown in Table 1 of the Appendix.   All of the conversion

efficiencies meet the requirements of the California regulation.

        The staff based the evaluation of the new aftermarket catalytic

converters on the information submitted and tests data from Automotive

Testing and Development Services, Inc.
