                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—280—75
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                             |      of the Vehicle Code

                                  Airte»k, Inc. (d.b.a. Catco)
                     "Series 710000 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. 378" 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 710000 three—way —
catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1998 through 2004 model year Nissan light—duty
trucks 2 (LDT2) equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in
Appendix D—280—75 and incorporated herein. Series 710000 TWCs will be used for
single or multiple catalytic converters applications. These catalytic converters will 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 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 Compliance and Research Services, Inc. using the
Air Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for 100 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 11 compatibility tests conducted by Airtek, Inc.
using vehicle(s) of weight classification and exhaust configuration similar to those listed
in Appendix D—280—75 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in
the issuance of Executive Orders D—280—13, it was determined that the installation of
Series 710000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—280—75 meets the requirements of
California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Airtek, Inc.‘s 710000 TWCs are
exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for
installation on the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D—280—75 subject
to the following conditions:

   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
