                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—280—16
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                                AirTek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
           "Series 412000 OBD 1 Compliant Three—way Catalytic Converter"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156, and Section 2222(h), Title 16, 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 412000 three—way catalytic converter
(TWC) on 2001 and older GM passenger cars and light—duty trucks 1 (LDT1) equipped with
on—board diagnostic 11 (OBD—It) systems and single three—way catalytic converter (TWC) as
specified in Appendix D—280—16 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 412000 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—16.

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 16, California Code of Regulations. The emissions performance of the
catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by Compliance and Research
Services, Inc. using the ARB—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycie for a duration of 75 hours,
as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non—original
Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped With On—Board Diagnostic II (OBD (1) Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Ecologic Engine Testing Laboratory (Ecologic),
Fullerton, California, with Series 412000 TWC installed on a 1999 3.1L Chevrolet Malibu, test
group XGMXVO03.1043, certified to the passenger car, Low Emission Vehicle emission
standards (PC, LEV), showed that the catalytic converter met the applicable emission
standards.

OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 412000
TWC did not affect the vehicle‘s abitity to perform OBD 1 system monitoring. Emission test
results in grams per mile are shown below.

                                                NMOG          cCO           NOx

                                               —2.

IT 1S 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—16 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.

             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.

             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
             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.

             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."

             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.

             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.

             AirTek, Inc., its associates, vendors, other businesses, and individuals may not
             sell or supply the substrates of the new aftermarket catalytic converter to a third
             party to be assembled in a different facility and marketed under this Executive
             Order.

                                               —3—


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

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of intention to revokeit, during which
period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed
revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request,
and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made, after the hearing, that
grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this éé &d'ay of June 2006.
