WHEREAS, Airtek, Inc. (Airtek) of 4410 W. 378" AvenUe, Hobart, Indiana 46342, has

as specified in Appendix D—280—74 and incorporated herein. Series 110000 & 610000
TWCs 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

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

Appendix A to the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.

installation of Series 110000 & 610000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—74
meets the requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.
