                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—280—40
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                               Airtek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
              "Series 110000 & 610000 Three—way Catalytic Converters

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395, and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR") Section 2222(h), authorize the California Air Resources
Board and its Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the
prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156 and 38391.

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 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 110000 & 610000
three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1999 through 2002 Toyota passenger
cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix
D—280—40 and incorporated herein. Series 110000 & 610000 TW Cs will be used for
multiplecatalytic converter system applications, with Series 110000 as the front
catalytic converter and Series 610000 as the rear catalytic converter. These catalytic
converters may be sold as a universal or direct fit system.

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 converters comply with the
California Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222(h). Emission performance of the catalytic converters was
based on durability bench—aging by Southwest Research Institute using the Air
Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for 75 hours, as specified in
Appendix A to the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD 1| compatibility tests conducted by AirTek,
Inc. on vehicles with similar weight classification and exhaust emission standards to
those listed in Appendix D—280—40, resulted in the issuance of Executive Order
D—280—15 and D—280—20, it was determined that the installation of Series 110000 &
610000 TWCs on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—40 meets the requirements of
California regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Airtek,; Inc.‘s Series 110000 & 610000
TWCs are exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391


for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D—280—40
subject to the following conditions:

1. No changes are permitted to the catalytic converters as described in the application
   for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converters or any of their 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 converters using identifications other than those shown in
   the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the catalytic
   converters 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 converters 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
   converters and is only a finding that the catalytic converters are exempt from the
   prohibitions of Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391.

   Airtek, Inc.‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic converters must conform to
   requirements in Section (h) of the "California Evaluation Procedures for New

   sensor. Oxygen sensors must be installed in the same location, position and
   orientation as prescribed in the original equipment manufacturer‘s configurations.

   five (5) years or 50,000 miles as prescribed in Section (f)(2) of the "California
   Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted
   October 25, 2007 .

   Airtek, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket catalytic
   converters as "high flow or easy flow" catalytic converters or use any phrase that
   could make them appear to perform better than the original equipment manufacturer
   (OEM) catalytic converters.

   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.
