                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D-280-25
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 271 56
                                   of the Vehicle Code

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

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR"), authorize the Califorrria Air Resources Board and its
Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 271 56.

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
Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 412000 three-way catalytic converter
(TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2003 model year Chrysler passenger cars
equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems as specified in Appendix D-280-25
and incorporated herein. The Series 412000 TWC will be used for single (one unit) exhaust
system applications for selected Chrysler passenger cars.

Series 412000 TWC may also be installed on non-OBD ll vehicles (1995 and older) similar in
engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D-280-25.

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, Air Resources Board finds 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 errrissions
performance of the catalytic converter was based on durability bench-aging by Southwest
Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas, using Air Resources Board-modified RAT-A bench-
aging cycle for 75 hours, as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New
Aftermarket Non-original Eq~~ipment   Catalytic Converters Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic
II (OBD II) Systems."

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by AirTek, Inc.
using a vehicle of a weight classification and exhaust configuration similar to those listed in
Appendix D-280-25 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the
issuance of Executive Order D-280-16, it was determined that the installation of Series
41 2000 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D-280-25 meets the requirements of
California regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the vehicles listed in Appendix D-280-25
subject to the following conditions:


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 these products 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 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."

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 "performance, high or easy flow" catalytic converter or use any
phrase that could make them appear to perform better than an OEM catalytic
converter.

The new aftermarket catalytic converter substrate may not be sold or supplied
to a third party by AirTek, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and
individuals associated with AirTek, to be assernbled in a different facility and
marketed under this Executive Order.

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.

AirTek must submit the required quality audit and production quantity reports
for its aftermarket catalytic converter semi-annually, covering the periods
January 1 through June 30, and July 1 through December 31.
