                                        Of the Vehicle Code

                                   Donaldson Company, Inc.
                         Donaldson DCM Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Muffler


Pursuant to the authofity vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the Vehicle
Code; and                                                                .

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section 39516 of the —
Health—and Safety Code and Executive Order G—02—003;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:; That the installation of the Donaldson DCM Diesel
Oxidation Catalyst Muffler, manufactured and marketed by the Donaldson Company, P.O. Box
1299, Minneapolis, MN 55440, has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable
vehicle pollution control system and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156
of the Vehicle Code for installation on 1991 through 2002 model—year four—stroke, turbocharged
heavy—duty diese! engines certified to standards of 0.25 g/ibhp—hr particulate matter (PM) or less,
with horsepower rating between 150 and 600 HP.

The Donaldson DCM Diesel Oxidation Catalyst:Muffler is an integrated catalyst and muffler
intended to directly replace the existing muffler on a heavy—duty diesel vehicle. It comes in two
formulations: the Series 6000 intended for use with California‘s standard diesel (500 ppm
maximum sulfur content) or ultra low sulfur diesel fuel (15 ppm maximum sulfur content), and
the Series 6100 for use with ultra low sulfur diesel fuel only.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Donaldson DCM
Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Muffler will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order shall not apply to any Donaldson Company Donaldson DCM Diesel!
Oxidation Catalyst Muffier advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on a motor vehicle
prior to or concurrent with the transfer to an ultimate purchaser.                                  —

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Donaldson DCM Diesel Oxidation
Catalyst Muffler, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of the Donaldson DCM Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Muffler using any identification other
than that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Donaldson DCM Diesel Oxidation


Catalyst Muffler for an application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board. Exemption of the
system shall not be construed as exemption to gell, offer for sale, or advertise any component of
the kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the use of the
Donaldson DCM Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Muffler may have on any warranty either expressed
or implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

This Executive Order is granted based on test results submitted by Donaldson Company which
demonstrated that the Donaldson DCM Diesel Oxidation Catalyst Muffler has no adverse impact
on exhaust emissions when tested using the transient federal test procedure for on—road heavy—
duty engines. Results from testing a 1991 model year Detroit Diesel Series 60 engine and a
2000 model year Caterpillar 3126 engine are summarized below:
