                            EXECU1-IVE ORDER D-280-24
                     Relating to Exerr~ptionsunder Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                             AirTek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
           "Series 6 12000 OBD l l 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. 37thAvenue, Hobart, Indiana 46342, has
applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 612000 three-way catalytic
converter (TWC) for installation on 1996 through 2001 Toyota passenger cars (PC) and
light-duty trucks 1 (LDTI) equipped with on-board diagnostic I1 (OBD-II) systems as specified
in Appendix D-280-24 and incorporated herein. The TWC will be used in a single exhaust
system with one or two catalytic converters in series. The Series 612000 TWC may also be
installed on non-OBD II vehicles (1995 and older) with similar exhaust configuration as those
listed in Appendix D-280-24.

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 Air Resources Board 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 Southwest
Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas, using the ARB-modified RAT-A bench-aging cycle
for 75 hours, 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, emissions tests conducted at the Ecologic Engine Testing Laboratory (Ecologic),
Fullerton, California, with Series 612000 TWC installed on a 2000 1.8L Toyota Corolla, test
group YTYXVOI .8FFA, certified to the Low Emission Vehicle and passenger car emission
standards (LEVIPC), showed that the catalytic converter met the applicable emission
standards.

OBD ll compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 612000
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          a            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-280-24 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. Exerrlption 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
             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 I and X of the "Optional Evaluation
             Procedures for New Aftermarket Non-original Equipment Catalytic Converters
             Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) 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 (5) 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
              c o ~ ~make
                     l d it appear to perform better than an original equipment manufacturer
              (OEM) catalytic converter.

       7.     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.



                   AIRTEK, INC. - CATALYTIC CONVERTER - D-280-24


       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 Air Resources Board
              prior to shipment.

Executive Order D-280-15, dated March 10, 2006, is hereby superseded and of no further
force and effect.

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 revoke it, 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.
