La Mirada, California 90638, has applied for exemption to use their new 700

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

for oxidation (OC) or two—way and three—way (TWC) applications, under the

California regulations for new aftermarket catalytic converters.   Car Sound

plans to use the converter for oxidation and three—way applications on

vehicles up to 5.0 liters and 4000 lbs.

        Emissions data submitted 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 applications.   Based on the

above, the staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested.

stated applications.

III.         COMMENDATION >

           The staff recommends that the exemption be granted as requested and

that Executive Order No. D—193—2 be issued, permitting the advertisement,

sale and installation of the new aftermarket catalytic converter as

oxidation and three—way converters on vehicles up to 5.0 liters and 4000

lbs.


        DEVICE    DESCRIPTION

        The Car Sound three—way plus oxidation substrates are coated with

platinum, palladium and rhodium with no air injection incorporated between

the reducing and oxidizing substrates.       The substrates are enclosed in an

outer shell or container of stainless steel.        The 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 application catalog.        It is also sold with a warranty for two years

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

container or shell.

¥.        VICE     EVALUATIO

        Car Sound submitted test data on the catalytic converter.          The tests

were conducted by Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc. (ATDS),

Huntington Beach, California.        The mileage accumulation and test vehicle

parameters for the converter applications are shown in the appendix.             Two

CVS—75 emission tests were conducted on each of the test vehicles with the

converter installed and two CVS—75 tests were conducted with exhaust

backpressure simulator.        The same test procedure was used for both the

oxidation and the three—way applications.       The tests were conducted

following the accumulation of 25,000 miles on each of the two test

converters.

        The vehicles used in the accumulation of 25,000 miles had an engine

displacement of 5.0 liters and vehicle weight of 4000 Ibs.        Exemptiofi for

each converter application is limited to vehicles up to 5.0 liters and 4000

lbs. in order to conform to the "worst case" requirement of the California

regulations.     The test results and conversion efficiencies for the oxidation

and three—way applications are shown below:

All of the conversion efficiencies meet the requirements of the California

regulations.     The staff based the evaluation of the new aftermarket

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

data from Automotive Testing and Development Services, Inc.
