       "Series 44000141000 OBD ll Compliant Three-way Catalytic Converters"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 271 56 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 44000 and 41 000 three-way catalytic converters (TWC) for illstallation on selected
1996 through 2004 model year Toyota light-duty trucks (LDTI) equipped with on-board
diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems as specified in Appendix D-193-57 and incorporated herein.
The Series 44000 will be used as front catalytic converters for single or dual exhaust
systems, and Series 41000 used as rear catalytic converter for multiple catalytic converter
applications.

Series 44000 and 41000 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-193-57.

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 Series 44000 and 41000 was based on durability bench-aging by Delphi
Energy and Chassis Systems using Air Resources Board-modified RAT-A bench-aging cycle
for 75 and 100 hours respectively 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, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by Car Sound
Exhaust System, Inc. using a vehicle of a weight classification and exhaust configuration
similar to those listed in Appendix D-193-57 and certified to Low Ernissio~iVehicle (LEV)
standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Order D-193-54, it was determined that the
installation of Series 44000141000 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D-193-57 meets
the requirements of California regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.
