                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D—280—31
                         Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                      of the Vehicle Code

          —                    AirTek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
              "Series 612000 OBD 11 Compliant Three—way Catalytic Converter"

 WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27A156 and Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of
 Regulations (hereafter "CCR"), 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
 Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 612000 three—way catalytic converter
 (TWC) for installation on selected 1995 through 2002 model year Suzuki passenger cars
 (PC) and light—duty trucks 1 (LDT1) equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as
 specified in Appendix D—280—31 and incorporated herein. The Series 612000 TWC will be
 used for single or multiple catalytic converter exhaust system applications as listed in
 Appendix D—280—31. The catalytic converter should be sold as a system that includes the
 front and rear units, where applicable.

 Series 612000 TWC may also be installed on non—OBD 11 vehicles (1995 and older) similar in
 engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D—280—31.

 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 emissions
 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 Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped with On—Board Diagnostic
 II (OBD II) Systems."

 WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD I! compatibility tests conducted by AirTek, Inc. .
 using a vehicle of a weight classification and exhaust configuration similar to those listed in
 Appendix D—280—31 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the
 issuance of Executive Order D—280—15, it was determined that the installation of Series
 612000 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—31 meets the requirements of
 California regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.

 T 15 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—31
 subject to the following conditions:                                                              '


                          —   2   —
