                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—30
                      Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                            Miller Catalyzer Corporation
            "Series 31000 OBD II Comipliant 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 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 1995 through 2004 model year Land Rover light—duty
trucks 2 (LDT2) and medium—duty vehicles (MDV) equipped with on—board diagnostic II
(OBD—I1) systems as specified in Appendix D—353—30 and incorporated herein. The Series
31000 TWC will be used for dual parallel (2 units) exhaust system applications for selected
Land Rover LDT2 and MDV.

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—30.

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 11)

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—30 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—30 meets the requirements of
California regulations.

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—30
subject to the following conditions:

                               —   2   —

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 exemption it 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 | 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.                                       —

 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
      assembled 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 Resources 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.

  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.
