                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—30
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                  Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. (d.b.a. Magnafiow)
                 "Series 42000 OBD 11 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 converters {TWCs) for installation on selected 1996 through 2000 model
year Mercedes—Benz passenger cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as
specified in Appendix D—193—30 and incorporated herein. The Series 42000 TWCs will be used
for single (2 units) and dual (4 units) exhaust system applications for selected Mercedes—Benz
passenger cars. The catalytic converters will be soid as direct—fit systems only, and not as
individual units. The TWCs 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—30.

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 converters comply 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 Delphi Energy and Engine
Management 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 I1) Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing and Development Services,
Inc. (ATDS), Ontario, California, using a 2000 4.3L Mercedes—Benz, test group
YMBXVO5.0GNB (LEV, PC), with Series 42000 TWCs installed on dual (4 units) exhaust
system (two warm—up TWCs and two underbody TWCs) showed that the vehicle met the
applicable emission standards. OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle
showed that Series 42000 TWCs did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD II system
monitoring. Emission test results in grams per mile are shown below.

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