                                    State of California
                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                               EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—33
                        Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                     of the Vehicle Code

                               Miller Catalyzer Corporation
            "Series 60000 OBD II 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 60000 three—way catalytic
converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1995 through 2004 model year Volvo passenger
(PC) cars equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix
D—353—33 and incorporated herein. The Series 60000 TWC wilil be used for single exhaust
system (one or two units) applications for selected Volvo PC.

The TWC may also be installed on non—OBD 11 vehicles (1995 and older) similar in engine
and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D—353—33.

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 Umicore
Automotive Catalysts using Air Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for 75
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, emissions tests conducted at the Automotive Testing Development Services,
Inc. (ATDS), Ontario, California, using a 1999 3.1L Chevrolet Malibu equipped with a single
exhaust system, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV, PC) emission standards
showed that the vehicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 60000 TWC
{one unit) installed.

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—33 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the issuance of
Executive Order D—353—24, it was determined that the installation of Series 31000 TWC on
the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—33 meets the requirements of California regulations.

IT 18 HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified
in Appendix D—353—33 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 their
             components, and other factors addressed in this order must be evaluated and
             approved by the Air Resources Board prior to marketing in California.

             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.

             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

             Miller Catalyzer Corporation‘s installation instructions for the new cataiytic
             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 I1) Systems."

              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.

              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
              catalytic converter.

              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
              marketed under this Executive Order.

              Any marketing arrangement of the new aftermarket catalytic converter by a third
              paity, 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.

                                         e       e

       9.     Miller 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.

Executed at El Monte, California, this       /       day of August 2008.
