                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—44
               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 theAir Resources Board for exermmption from the prohibitions in
Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 31000
three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1996 through 2003 model year
General Motors medium—duty vehicles equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—Il) _
systems as specified in Appendix D—353—44 and incorporated herein. Series 31000 TWC
will be used for dual parallel catalytic converter system apphcatlons (one unit per bank)
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 Catalyst USA 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—44 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Orders D—353—17, it was determined that
the installation of Series 31000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—44 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—44
subject to the following conditions:


                                           —2.—

. 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

  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.

   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 shlpment

._ Miller Catalyzer Corporation, its associates, vendors, other businesses and
