                                   State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—29
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                  Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. (d.b.a. MagnaFlow)
           "Series 41000 and 43000 OBD II Three—way Catalytic Converters"

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 22691 Arroyo Vista, Rancho
Santa Margarita, California 92688, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption
from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series
41000 and 43000 three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1994 through 2001 3.8L
Ford Mustangs equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—It) systems and four (4) catalytic
converters as specified in Appendix D—193—29 and incorporated herein. The Series 41000
will be used as front warm—up catalytic converters (2 units) and Series 43000 as rear catalytic
converters (2 units) for multiple (4 units) catalytic converter applications. These catalytic
converters will be sold as direct—fit system only, and not as individual units. The Series
41000 and 43000 TWCs direct—fit system may also be installed on non—OBD !I vehicles (1995
and older) similar in engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D—193—29.

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 converters comply with the California Vehicle Code Section 27156 and
Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h). The emissions performance of
said aftermarket catalytic converters was based on durability bench—aging by Delphi Energy
& Engine Management System (Delphi) 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 i1 (OBD !I) Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing and Development
Services, Inc. (ATDS), Ontario, California, with Series 41000 and 43000 TWCs installed on a
1999 3.8L Ford Mustang, test group XFMXVO3.8VGC, certified to the passenger car, Low
Emission Vehicle emission standards (PC, LEV), showed that the vehicle met the applicable
emission standards. OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same vehicle showed that
Series 41000 and 43000 TWC system does not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD 11
system monitoring. The following are the test results in grams per mile:

    PC 100K LEV standards                   0.090         4.2           0.3

    Average Tests 1 & 2                     0.06          1.06          0.04

    IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter system is exempt from the
    prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for instalilation on the approved vehicle
    applications specified in Appendix D—193—29 subject to the following conditions:

          1.    No changes are permitted to the catalytic converter system as described in the
                application for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converter system 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 system using identifications other than
                those shown in the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or
                 marketing of the catalytic converters 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 this product shall not be
                 construed as an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components
C                of the catalytic converter system 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 system and is only a
                 finding that the catalytic converter system is exempt from the prohibitions of
                 Vehicle Code Section 27 156.

          4.     Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic

                 Catalytic Converters Equipped with On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) Systems."

          5.     Upon installation, the catalytic converter system 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.

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

              Board prior to shipment.
