                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D-353-22
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 271 56
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                           Miller Catalyzer Corporation
           "Series 31000 OBD ll Compliant Three-way Catalytic Converter"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR"), authorize the California Air Resources Board and its
Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27 156.

WHEREAS, Miller Catalyzer Corporation of 3295 Depot Road, Hayward, California 94545,
has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 31000 three-way catalytic converter
(TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2003 model year General Motors (GM)
trucks equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems as specified in Appendix
D-353-22 and incorporated herein. The Series 31000 TWC will be used for dual parallel
(2 units) exhaust system applications for selected GM trucks.

Series 31000 TWC may also be installed on non-OBD ll vehicles (1995 and older) similar in
engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D-353-22.

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, Air Resources Board finds that
the above aftermarket catalytic converter complies with the California Vehicle Code
Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h). The emissions
performance of the catalytic converter was based on durability bench-aging by Delphi Energy
and Chassis Systems using Air Resources Board-modified RAT-A bench-aging cycle for
100 hours, as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket
Non-original Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II)
Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing Development Services,
Inc. (A-TDS), Ontario, California, using a 1998 5.7L Chevrolet Tahoe equipped with dual
parallel (2 units) exhaust system, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) emission
standards and medium-duty vehicle 2 (NIDV2) weight category, showed that the vehicle met
the applicable emission standards with Series 31000 TWC (2 units) installed.

OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 31000
TWC did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform OBD II system monitoring. Emission test
results in grams per mile are shown below.

IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the vehicles listed in Appendix D-353-22
subject to the following conditions:


      1.     No changes are permitted to the catalytic converter as described in the
             application for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converter or any of its
             components, and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and
             approved by the Air Resources Board prior to marketing in California.

      2.     Marketing of the catalytic converter using identifications other than those shown
             in the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the
             catalytic converter for application other than the ones shown in this Executive
             Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air
             Resources Board. Exemption of these products shall not be construed as an
             exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any components of the catalytic
             converter as individual devices.

      3.     Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Miller
             Catalyzer Corporation, its principals, agents, employees, distributors, dealers,
             or other representatives must include the disclaimer that the Executive Order or
             the exerr~ptionit provides is not an endorsement or approval of any emission
             reduction claims for the catalytic converter and is only a finding that the
             catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
             Section 27156.

      4.     Miller Catalyzer Corporation's installation instructions for the new catalytic
             converter must conform to requirements in Paragraphs I and X of the "Optional
             Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Non-original Equipment Catalytic
             Converters Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) Systems."

      5.     Upon installation, the catalytic converter must carry a manufacturer's warranty
             for 50,000 miles on the substrates and 50,000 miles or five years on the shell
             and end pipes.

      6.     Miller Catalyzer Corporation and its vendors may not advertise the new
             aftermarket catalytic converter as a "high or easy flow" catalytic converter or
             use any phrase that could make it appear to perform better than an OEM
             catalytic converter.

     MILLER CATALYZER CORPORATION            -   CATALYTIC CONVERTER        -   D-353-22


       7.     The new aftermarket catalytic converter substrate may not be sold or supplied
              to a third party by Miller Catalyzer Corporation, its associates, vendors, other
              businesses, and individuals associated with Miller Catalyzer Corporation, to be
              assernbled in a different facility and marketed under this Executive Order.

      8.      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 Air Reso~~rces      Board
              prior to shipment.

       9.     Miller Catalyzer Corporation must submit the required quality audit and
              production quantity reports for its aftermarket catalytic converter semi-annually,
              covering the periods January 1 through June 30, and July 1 through
              December 31.

Executive Order 0-353-17 dated March 13, 2007, is hereby superseded and of no further
force and effect.

Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of intention to revoke it, during which
period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed
revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request,
and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made, after the hearing, that
grounds for revocation exist.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   2 7 day of February 2008.
