                     "Three—way Catalytic Converter Series 45000"

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 22961 Arroyo Vista, Rancho

Code Sections 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 45000 three—way catalytic
converter (TWC) on 1997 through 2000 Ford light—duty trucks 2 (LDT2) equipped with an
on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) system as specified in Appendix D—193—62 and incorporated
herein. The application coverage includes vehicles equipped with dual catalytic converters.
The Series 45000 TWC may also be installed on non—OBD II vehicles (1995 and older)

Appendix D—193—62.

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and Safety

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
