                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—24
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                       Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.
              "THREE—WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER SERIES 43000"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 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. (Car Sound) of 22961 Arroyo Vista, Rancho
Santa Margarita, California 92688, has applied to the ARB for exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 to market their new aftermarket series 43000
three—way catalytic converter (TWC) on 2001 and older General Motors trucks equipped with
an on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) system as specified in Appendix A and incorporated
herein. The application coverage excludes vehicles equipped with a warm—up catalyst. The
TWC will be used in dual parallel underbody or single underbody vehicle applications. The
series 43000 TWC may also be installed on non—OBD 11 vehicles (1995 and older) similar in
engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix A.

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and Safety
Code Section 39515 and in the Chief, Mobile Source Operations Division by Health and
Safety Code Section 39516 and Executive Order G—02—003, 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). The emissions performance of
said catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by Delphi Engine and Chassis
Systems using the ARB—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for a duration of 100 hours, as
specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original Equipment
Catalytic Converters Equipped With On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing and Development Services
(ATDS), Ontario, California, with Series 43000 TWC installed on a 1999 5.7L Chevrolet
Tahos, test group XGMXAO05.7185, certified to the Medium—Duty Vehicle 2, Low Emission ~
Vehicle emission standards (MDV2, LEV}, showed that the catalytic converter met the
applicable emission standards. The following are the test results in grams per mile:

                             .                  NMOG          cCO           NOx.
MDV2 120K LEV standards                         0.230         6.4           0.6

                                             «2.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified
in Appendix A 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, and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and
             approved by the ARB prior to marketing in California.

             Marketing of the catalytic converter using identifications other than those shown
             in the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the
             catalytic converter for application other than the ones shown in this Executive
             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.

             Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Car
             Sound Exhaust System, Inc., its principals, agents, employees, distributors,
             dealers, or other representatives must include the disclaimer that the Executive
             Order or the exemption it provides is not an endorsement or approval of any
             emission reduction claims for the catalytic converter and is only a finding that
             the catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section
             27156.

             Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic
             converter must conform to requirements in Paragraphs I and X of the "Optional
             Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original Equipment Catalytic
             Converters Equipped With On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11) Systems."

             Upon installation, the catalytic converter must carry a manufacturer‘s warranty
             for 50,000 miles on the substrates and 50,000 miles or five years on the shell
             and end pipes.

             Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new
             aftermarket catalytic converter as a "high or easy flow" catalytic converter or
             use any phrase that could make it appear to perform better than an OEM
             catalytic converter.

order may be revoked only after ten day written notice of intention to revoke it, during which
period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed
revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request,

grounds for revocation exist.
