                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—27
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                            Miller Catalyzer Corporation
            "Series 31000 OBD 11 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 27156.

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 Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 31000 three—way catalytic
converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1999 through 2003 model year Honda light—duty
trucks 2 (LDT2) equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—I1) systems as specified in
Appendix D—353—27 and incorporated herein. The Series 31000 TWC will be used for single
(one unit) exhaust system applications for selected Honda trucks.

Series 31000 TWC may also be installed on non—OBD II vehicles (1995 and older) similar in
engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D—353—27.

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 I1)
Systems."                                                                        '

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD 1 compatibility tests conducted by Miller Catalyzer
Corporation using a vehicle of a weight classification similar to those listed in Appendix
D—353—27 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the issuance of
Executive Order D—353—13, it was determined that the installation of Series 31000 TWC on
the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—27 meets the requirements of California regulations.

      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 exemption it provides is not an endorsement or approval of any emission

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 them appear to perform better than an OEM

7.    The new aftermarket catalytic converter substrate may not be sold or supplied
      to a third party by Miller, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and
      individuals associated with Miller, to be assembled in a different facility and
