                                     State of California
                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—39
                       Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                    of the Vehicle Code

                  Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. (d.b.a. MagnaFlow)
       "Series 41100 and 41400 OBD II Compliant 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 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 41100 and 41400 three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1994 through
  2001 model year 4.6L Ford passenger cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II)
  systems and multiple (3, 4 or 6) catalytic converters as specified in Appendix D—193—39 and
  incorporated herein. The Series 41100 will be used as front catalytic converters (2 or 4 units)
  and Series 41400 as rear catalytic converters (1 unit or 2 units) for multiple catalytic
_ converter applications. These catalytic converters may be sold as universal or direct—fit
  system for the vehicles listed in Appendix D—193—39. The Series 41100 and 41400 TWCs
  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—39.

 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 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 aftermarket catalytic converters was based on durability bench—aging by
 Delphi Energy & Engine Management System (Delphi) using the 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 |I (OBD 11) Systems."

 WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing and Development
 Services, Inc., Ontario, California, with Series 41100 (2 units front) and Series 41400
 (2 units rear) TWCs installed on a 2001 4.6L Crown Victoria, test group YFMXVO4.6VF5,
 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 41100 and 41400 TWC system does not affect the
 vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD |I system monitoring. The following are the test results in
 grams per mile:


                                       NMOG          CO            NOx
PC 100K LEV standards                  0.090         4.2           0.3
Series 41100 and 41400 Test 1          0.089         0.9           0.1
Series 41100 and 41400 Test 2          0.085         111           0.1
Average Tests 1 & 2                    0.087          1.0          0.1

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter system is exempt from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the approved vehicle
applications specified in Appendix D—193—39 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
            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 27156.

      4.    Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic
            converter system 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 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
            converter or use any phrase that could make it appear to perform better than
            an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) catalytic converter.

       7.     The new aftermarket catalytic converter substrates may not be sold or supplied
              to a third party by Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc., its associates, vendors,
              other businesses, and individuals associated with Car Sound Exhaust System,
              Inc., 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 the Air Resources
              Board prior to shipment.

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 24 day of August 2006.
