                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                 Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. (d.b.a. MagnaFlow)
                 "Series 46000 OBD II 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 46000
three-way catalytic converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2003 model year
GM passenger cars and light-duty trucks equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems        .
as specified in Appendix D-193-49 and incorporated herein. The Series 46000 TWC will be
used for single (one unit) exhaust system applications for selected GM passenger cars and
light-duty ~ ~ I J C ~ S .

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-193-49.

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
catalytic converter was based on durability bench-aging by Delphi Energy and Chassis Systems
usirlg 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 II) Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing Development Services, Inc.
(ATDS), Ontario, California, using a 1999 3.8L Pontiac Grand Prix equipped with a single
(one unit) exhaust system, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV, PC) emission
standards showed that the veliicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 46000
TWC (one unit) installed.

OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 46000 TWC
did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform OBD II system monitoring. Emission test results in
grams per mile are shown below.
