                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—193—60
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                  Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc. (d.b.a. Magnaflow)
        "Series 44000/41000 OBD I1 Compliant Three—way Catalytic Converters"

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 44000 and 41000 three—way catalytic converters (TWC) for installation on selected
1995 through 2004 model year Mazda passenger cars (PC) and light—duty trucks (LDT1)
equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix D—193—60
and incorporated herein. The Series 44000 will be used as front catalytic converters (1 unit
or 2 units) for single or dual exhaust systems, and Series 41000 used as rear catalytic
converter for multiple catalytic converter applications (1 unit or 2 units).

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—60.

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 1| 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—60 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Order D—193—54, it was determined that the
installation of Series 44000/41000 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—193—60 meets
the requirements of California regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converters are exempt from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the vehicles listed in
Appendix D—193—60 subject to the following conditions:


  1.   No changes are permitted to the catalytic converters as described in the
       application for exemption. . Any changes to the catalytic converters or any of
       their 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 converters 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 these products shall not be construed as
       an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic
       converters 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 converters and is only a finding that
       the catalytic converters are exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
       Section 27156.

  4.   Car Sound Exhaust System, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic
       converters must conform to requirements in Paragraphs | and X of the
       "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original Equipment

  5.   Upon installation, the catalytic converters 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 converters as "high or easy flow" catalytic converters or
       use any phrase that could make them appear to perform better than an OEM
       catalytic converters.

  7.   The new aftermarket catalytic converters substrate may not be sold or supplied
       to a third party by Car Sound, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and
       individuals associated with Car Sound, to be assembled in a different facility
       and marketed under this Executive Order.

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

  9.   Car Sound must submit the required quality audit and production quantity
       reports for its aftermarket catalytic converters semi—annually, covering the
       periods January 1 through June 30, and July 1 through December 31.
