                                  State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—43
               Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                 of the Vehicle Code

                              Miller Catalyzer Corporation
                     "Series 31000 Three—way Catalytic Converters

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395, 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 27156 and 38391.

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 Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 31000
three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1995 through 2003 model year
General Motors light—duty trucks 2 (LDT2) and medium—duty vehicles equipped with
on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as specified in Appendix D—353—43 and
incorporated herein. Series 31000 TWC will be used for single catalytic converter
application (one unit) and may be sold as universal or direct fit system.

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, the Air
Resources Board finds that the above aftermarket catalytic converters comply with the
California Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code of
Regulations, Section 2222(h). Emission performance of the catalytic converter was
based on durability bench—aging by Umicore Automotive Catalysts using the Air
Resources Board—modified RAT—A bench—aging cycle for 100 hours as specified in
Appendix A to the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.                                       |

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by Miller
Catalyzer Corporation using a vehicle of weight classification and exhaust configuration
similar to those listed in Appendix D—353—43 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Orders D—353—13, it was determined that
the installation of Series 31000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—43 meets the
requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Miller Catalyzer Corporation‘s 31000
TWCs are exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391
for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D—353—43
subject to the following conditions:


                                            —9.

. No changes are permitted to the catalytic converters as described in the application
  for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converters 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 converters using identifications other than those shown in
   the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the catalytic
  converters 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 converters 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 converters and is only a finding that the catalytic converters are exempt from
  the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391.

._ Miller Catalyzer Corporation‘s installation instructions for the new catalytic converters
   must conform to requirements in Section (h) of the "California Evaluation Procedures
   for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted October 25, 2007.

. Installation of the catalytic converters shall not cause the relocation of an oxygen
  sensor. Oxygen sensors must be installed in the same location, position and
  orientation as prescribed in the original equipment manufacturer‘s configurations.

._ Upon installation, the catalytic converters must carry a manufacturer‘s warranty for
  five (5) years or 50,000 miles as prescribed in Section (f)(2) of the "California
  Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted
  October 25, 2007 .

._ Miller Catalyzer Corporation and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket
  catalytic converters as "high flow or easy flow" catalytic converters or use any phrase
  that could make them appear to perform better than the original eqmpment
  manufacturer (OEM) catalytic converters.

._ 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 the Air Resources Board
   prior to shipment.

._ Miller Catalyzer Corporation, its associates, vendors, other businesses and _
  individuals associated with Miller Catalyzer Corporation may not sell or supply new
  aftermarket catalytic converter substrates to a third party to be assembled in a
  different facility and marketed under this Executive Order without approval from the
  Air Resources Board.
