                                  State of California
                             AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—31
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                 Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. (d.b.a. Magnaflow)
           "Series 42000 OBD I! 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
2001 model year Honda passenger cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—I!)
systems as specified in Appendix D—193—31 and incorporated herein. The Series 42000
TWC will be used for single (1 unit) exhaust system applications for selected Honda
passenger cars.

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—31.

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 aftermarket catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by
Delphi 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
i1 (OBD I1) Systems."

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

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 D—193—31 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.

              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.            +

              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

              Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.‘s instailation 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 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      m
              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.


       7.     Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc., its associates, vendors, other businesses,
              and individuals may not sell or supply the substrates of the new aftermarket
              catalytic converter to a third party to be assembled in a different facility and
              marketed under this Executive Order.

       8.     Any marketing arrangement of the new aftermarket catalytic converter by a third
              party, which involves the use of packaging identification different from the ones
              described in this Executive Order, must be approved by ARB prior to shipment.

Executive Order D—193—28 dated September 13, 2005, is hereby superseded and of no
further force and effect.

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 7 74     day of November 2005.
