                          "Series 610000 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

 the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156
 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 610000 three—way catalytic converter (TWC) on
 selected 1995 through 2002 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—64 and
 incorporated herein. Series 610000 TWC will be used for single or multiple catalytic converter
 applications as listed in Appendix D—280—64. This catalytic convertermay 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 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 Southwest
 Research Institute, San Antonio, Texas, 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, emissions tests conducted at the Ecologic Engine Testing Laboratory (Ecologic),
 Fullerton, California, with Series 610000 TWC installed on a 1997 3.0L Ford Taurus, test group
 VFM3.0V86G3EK, certified to the passenger car, Low Emission Vehicle emission standards (PC,
 LEV}), showed that the catalytic converter met the applicable emission standards.

 OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 610000 TWC
 did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD 11 system monitoring. Emission test results in
 grams per mile are shown below.
