                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—280—13
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                            AirTek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
           "Series 712000 OBD II Compliant Three—way Catalytic Converter"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156, and Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, 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, AirTek, Inc. (AirTek) of 4410 W. 37"" Avenue, Hobart, Indiana 46342, has
applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
Sections 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 712000 three—way catalytic converter
(TWC) on 2000 and older DaimlerChrysler mini—vans equipped with on—board diagnostic II
(OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix D—280—13 and incorporated herein. The
application coverage excludes vehicles equipped with a warm—up catalyst. The TWC
will be used in a single underbody vehicle application. The Series 712000 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—280—13.

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, the ARB finds that the above
aftermarket catalytic converter complies with the California Vehicle Code Section 27156 and
Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of Regulations. The emissions performance of
said catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by Compliance and Research
Services, Inc. using the ARB—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for a duration of 100 hours,
as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original
Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped With On—Board Diagnostic {I (OBD I!) Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Ecologic Engine Testing Laboratory (Ecologic),
Fullerton, California, with Series 712000 TWC installed on a 1999 3.3L Plymouth Grand
Voyager mini—van, test group XCRXT0201230, certified to the Light—Duty Truck 2, Low
Emission Vehicle emission standards (LDT2, LEV), showed that the catalytic converter met
the applicable emission standards.

OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 712000
TWC did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD II system monitoring. Emission test
results in grams per mile are shown below.

                                                  NMOG      CO            NOx

      IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
      in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified
      in Appendix D—280—13 subject to the following conditions:

            1.     No changes are permitted to the catalytic converter as described in the
                   application for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converter or any of its
                   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 converter using identifications other than those shown
                   in the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the
                   catalytic converter 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 this product shall not be construed as an
                   exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic
                   converter as individual devices.

            3.     Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by AirTek,
                   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
am                 reduction claims for the catalytic converter and is only a finding that the
                   catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section
                   27156.

            4.     AirTek, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic converter must
                   conform to requirements in Paragraphs | and X of the "Optional Evaluation
                   Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original Equipment Catalytic Converters
                   Equipped With On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD !1) Systems."

            5.     Upon installation, the catalytic converter 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.    AirTek, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket catalytic
                   converter as a "high or easy flow" catalytic converter or use any phrase that
                   could make it appear to perform better than an original equipment manufacturer
                   (OEM) catalytic converter.
