                Relatlng to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                                 Airtek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
                        "Geries 710000 Three—way Catalytic Converter"

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 710000 three—way catalytic converter
(TWC) on selected 1996 through 2004 Mitsubishi light—duty trucks 2 (LDT2) and medium—
duty vehicles (MDV) equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in
Appendix D—280—44 and incorporated herein. Series 710000 TWCs will be used for multiple
catalytic converter system applications. This catalytic converter is to be sold as a direct fit
system that includes both the front and rear catalytic converter units.

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
Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h).
Emission performance of the catalytic converter was based on durability bench—aging by
Compliance Research Services, Inc. using the Air Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—
aging cycle for 100 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 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—44 and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the
issuance of Executive Order D—280—13, it was determined that the installation of Series
710000 TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—44 meets the requirements of
California regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Airtek, Inc.‘s 710000 TWC is exempted from
