                         "Series 610000 Three—way Catalyflc 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..

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 1996 through 2004 Hyundai passenger cars (PC) equipped with on—board diagnostic II
(OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix D—280—65 and incorporated herein. Series 610000
TWC will beused for single or multiple catalytic converter applicationsas listed in Appendix
D—280—65. This catalytic converter 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 converter complies with the California Vehicle Code Sections 27156
and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h). Emission
performance ofthe 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
VFM3.0V8G3EK, 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 abilityto perform OBD II system monitoring. Emission test results in
grams per mile are shown below.

      for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converter 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 converter using identifications other than those shown in

      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

      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
