                 "THREE—WAY PLUS OXIDATION CATALYTIC CONVERTER"

WEEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391,     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 Systems, 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:

TWC + 0C         TWC + Oc   $3000        5.9L (360 CID)      5,500 lbs.

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 —

   1.   No changes are permitted to the converter as described in the
        application for exemption.  Any changes to the converter or any of
        its components, and other factors addressed in this order must be
        evaluated and approved by the ARS prior to marketing in California.

  2.    Marketing of the converter using identifications other than those
        shown in the exemption application or marketing of the converter
        for application other than the one listed in the application catalog
        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 converter as
        individual devices.
