                                  State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—28
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                          Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.
           "Series 42000 OBD I1 Compliant Three—way Catalytic Converter"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR"), authorize the California Air Resources Board 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 Air Resources Board for exemption
from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series
42000 three—way catalytic converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2000
model year Honda passenger cars and light—duty trucks equipped with On—Board
Diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix D—193—28 and incorporated herein.
Series 42000 TWC will be used for single (1 unit) exhaust system applications for selected
Honda passenger cars and light—duty trucks.

The TWC may also be installed on non—OBD II vehicles (1995 and older) similar in engine
and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D—193—28.

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, Air Resources Board 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 the catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by Deiphi Energy
and Chassis Systems using Air Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for
75 hours, as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket
Non—original Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped with On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11
Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing Development Services,
Inc. (ATDS), Ontario, California, using a 1998 2.3L Honda Accord equipped with a single
(1 unit) exhaust system and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV, PC) emission
standards showed that the vehicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 42000
TWC (1 unit) installed.

OBD 11 compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 42000
TWC did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD I! system monitoring. Emission test
results in grams per mile are shown below.                                                    |

    IT 1S 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 D—193—28 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 Air Resources Board prior to marketing in California,

             2.      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 Air
                     Resources Board. Exemption of these products shall not be construed as an
                     exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic
                     converter as individual devices.

             3.      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.

             4.      Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic
                     converter must conform to requirements in Paragraphs | and X of the "Optional
                     Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original Equipment Catalytic
                     Converters Equipped with On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD 1!) Systems."

             5.      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      m
                     and end pipes.

       6.     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.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a 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,
and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made, after the hearing, that
grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this _/Z mA déy of September 2005.
