                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—45
                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 1999 model year Toyota
light—duty trucks 2 (LDT2) equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems as
specified in Appendix D—353—45 and incorporated herein. Series 31000 TWC will be
used for single catalytic converter appllcatlon and may be sold as a 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 1 compatibility tests conducted by Miller
Catalyzer Corporation using a vehicle of weight classification and exhaust configuration
similar to those listed in Appendix D—353—45 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—45 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—35345
subject to the following conditions:              .               .

  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
   describedin this Executive Order, must be approved by the Air Resources Board
  prior to shipment.                                            |
