                                    State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—38
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                  Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. (d.b.a. Magnaflow)
            "Series 42000 OBD 11 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 2002 model year
Honda passenger cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in
Appendix D—193—38 and incorporated herein. The Series 42000 TWC will be used for single
(one 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—38.

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 Deiphi Energy and
Chassis Systems using Air Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycie 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 !I) 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
(one 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 (one unit) installed.

OBD II 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—38 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 27156.

             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 11 Systems."

             Upon instailation, 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



      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—31 dated November 7, 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

Executed at El Monte, California, this 23 day of August 2006.
