                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—280—58
                 Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                                 Airtek, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
                     "SGeries 410000 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 410000 three—way
catalytic converters (TWC) 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—58 and incorporated hereln Series 410000 TW Cs will be used for
single catalytic converter application.

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

Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.

using a vehicle of weight classification and exhaust configuration similar to those listed in
Appendix D—280—58 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in
the issuance of Executive Orders D—280—16, it was determined that the installation of
Series 410000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—58 meets the requirements of
California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Airtek, Inc.‘s 410000 TWCs are
exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for

   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.                                                                   |
