_ WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395, andTitle 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 fromthe
 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 1995 through 2004 model year Kia
 passenger cars (PC) and light—duty trucks 1(LDT1) equipped with on—board diagnostic II
 (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix D—280—66 and incorporated herein. Series
 110000 & 610000 TW Cs will be used for single or multiple catalytic converter
 applications. Series 610000 will be used for single catalytic converter applications.
 Series 110000 will be used as the front catalytic converter and Series 610000 as the rear
 catalytic converter for multiple catalytic converter applications. These catalytic
 converters will be sold as a 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 II compatibility tests conducted by Airtek, Inc.
 using vehicle(s) of weight classification and exhaust configuration similar to those listed
 in Appendix D—280—66 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in
 the issuance of Executive Orders D—280—15 and D—280—20, it was determined that the
installation of Series 110000 & 610000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—66
 meets the requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters. _
