                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D~193—10
                   Relating to Exemptions Under Section 27156
                              of the Vehicle Code


                         CAR SOUND EXHAUST SYSTEM, INC.
                "3—WAY PLUS OXIDATION CATALYTIC CONVERTER SERIES
                            22010—22029/23010~23029"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section     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,   Car Sound Exhaust System,    Inc.   of 22961 Arroyo Vista,   Rancho Santa
Margarita, California 92688, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for their new
Aftermarket three—way plus oxidation catalytic converter {TWC + OC) for the
following application:

Type            Series No.        Max. Engine Size            Max. Veb. Wt.

TWC + 0C        22010—22029/       4.5L (267 CID)             4,000 lbs.
                23010—23029

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health
and Safety Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Division by
Health and Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—45—5, 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).  Emission performance of the catalytic
converter was based on durability mileage accumulation of 25,000 miles using
the AMA durability driving schedule (Reference Appendix IV, Title 40, Part
86, Code of Federal Requlations (June 28, 1977)).

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for installation on
the approved application vehicle 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, applicable model year, or other
        factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and approved by the
        ARB prior to marketing in California.

   2.   Marketing of the converter using identifications other than those
        shown in the exemption application or marketing of the catalytic
        converter for vehicle application other than the ome listed in this
        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 devices.

                                        SUMMARY




              Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.   (Car Sound) of 22961 Arroyo Vista,

      Rancho Santa Margarita, California 92688, has applied for an exemption of

      their new aftermarket three—way plus oxidation catalytic converter (TWC +

      OC) from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 in

      accordance with California regulations for new aftermarket catalytic

      converters.   The new series 22010—22029/23010—23029 is for use on vehicles

      with engine displacement up to 4.5L, and maximum test weight of 4000 lbs.

              Emissions data submitted by the applicant show that the catalytic

      converter meets the requirements of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and Title 13,

      California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h) for the stated application.

      Based on the above, the staff recommends that the exemption be granted as

      requested and that Executive Order D—193—10 be issued.

     EVALUATION OF CAR SOUND EXHAUST SYSTEM, INC. NEW AFTERMARKET 3—WAY PLUS
      OXIDATION CATALYTIC CONVERTER FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN
               VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 AND TITLE 13, CALIFORNIA
                          CODE OF REGULATIONS, SECTION 2222(h)


I.         INTRODUCTION

           Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.     (Car Sound) of 22961 Arroyo Vista,

Rancho Santa Margarita, California 92688, has applied for an exemption

from the prohibitions from Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for their

new aftermarket three—way plus oxidation catalytic converter (TWC + OC) in

accordance with California regulations on new aftermarket catalytic

converters.     The intended application for the new aftermarket catalytic

converter is shown below:

Iype                       Series No.     Max. Engine Size         Max. Veh. Wt.
TWC + 0C          .        22010—22029/    4.5L (267 CID)           4000 ibs.
                           23010—23029
The catalyst was previously tested by Car Sound for use on vehicles with

engine displacement up to 5.0L and 4000 lbs. vehicle test weight; however,

it did not meet California NOx conversion efficiency.            Car Sound has then

re—tested the converter on a 4.5L vehicle with a test weight of 4250 lbs.

Since mileage accumulation was based on 4000 lbs.,           the "worse case" vehicle

test weight is 4000 lbs.        Car Sound has changed their part number system,

and in the current application, the series numbers shown above replace the

old 200 series.

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 converter meets the criteria set forth in Vehicle Code Section

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

stated application.

III.      RECOMMENDATION

          The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

that Executive Order No. D—193—10 be issued, permitting the advertisement,

sale and installation of the new aftermarket TWC + OC.


     IV.     DEVICE DESCRIPTION
vn




             The substrates of Car Sound‘s three—way plus oxidation catalytic

     converter are coated with palladium and rhodium.     The catalytic converter

     was assembled with one reducing and one oxidizing substrates enclosed in an

     outer stainless steel shell.     Air injection is incorporated between the

     reducing and oxidizing substrates.     A heat shield of aluminum is welded to

     the converter shell to protect the vehicle underbody from heat.     The

     catalytic converter is sold as a unit with installation instructions and

     kits as shown in the application catalog.     It is also sold with a warranty

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

     container or shell.

     v.      DEVICE EVALUATION

             Car Sound has submitted test data on the 22010—22029/23010—23029

     series catalytic converter. The tests were conducted by Automotive Testing

     and Development Services, Inc.    (ATDS), Huntington Beach, California.   The

     two test converters were previously aged on a 1984 and a 1985 carbureted

     Chevrolet Caprice 5.0L closed—loop vehicles with a test weight of 4000 lbs.

     CVS~75 emission tests to determine the conversion efficiency of the

     catalytic converter were conducted on a 1989 Cadillac Fleetwood, closed—loop

     TBI, powered by a 4.5L engine, and a vehicle test weight of 4250 lbs.       The

     vehicle application for the new three—way plus oxidation converter is

     limited to vehicles powered by engine size up to 4.5L, and 4000 lbs. vehicle

     test weight,   in order to conform to the "worst case" requirement of the

     California regulations.   The test results and conversion efficiencies for

     the converter are shown below:


                       22010—22029/23010—23029 Series TWC + OC

All of the conversion efficiencies meet the requirements of the California

requlations.     The staff based the evaluation of the new aftermarket

catalytic converter on the information submitted by Car Sound, and test data

from ATDS,.
