WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Section 27156, 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 271 56.

WHEREAS, Miller Catalyzer Corporation (Miller) of 3295 Depot Road, Hayward, California
94545, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle
Code Sections 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 45000 and 61000 three-way
catalytic converters (TWC) for installation on selected 1998 through 2003 model year Nissan
light-duty trucks 2 (LDT2) equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems and multiple
catalytic converters systems (2 or 4 units) as specified in Appendix D-353-25 and
incorporated herein. Series 61000 will be used as front catalytic converters (1 unit or 2 units)
and Series 45000 as rear catalytic converters (1 unit or 2 units) for m~lltiplecatalytic
converters system applications. Series 45000 only is used as replacement catalytic
converters for dual exhaust system (2 units). These catalytic converters may be sold as
universal or direct-fit system for the vehicles listed in Appendix D-353-25. The Series 45000
and 61000 TWCs may also be installed on non-OBD ll vehicles (1995 and older) similar in

that the above aftermarket catalytic converters corrlply with the California Vehicle Code
Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h). The errlissions

Delphi Energy & Engine Management System (Delphi) using the Air Resources Board
modified RAT-A bench-aging cycle for 100 hours, and testing conducted at the Automotive
Testing and Development Services, Inc. (A-TDS), as specified in the "Optional Evaluation
Procedures for New Aftermarket Non-original Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped With
On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD 11) Systems."

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by Miller Catalyzer
Corporation using a vehicle of a weight classification similar to those listed in
Appendix D-353-25 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the
