                                    State of California
                                AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—50
                 Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                                Miller Catalyzer Corporation
                "Series 45000 and 61000 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 45000
and 61000 three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1995 through 2004 model
year Toyota light—duty trucks 2 (LDT2) and medium—duty vehicles equipped with
on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II) systems and multiple catalytic converter systems (2, 3, 4
units) as specified in Appendix D—353—50 and incorporated herein. Series 61000 TWC
wiltl be used as front catalytic converters (1 unit or 2 units) and Series 45000 TWC as
rear catalytic converter(s) (1 unit, or 2 units) for multiple catalytic converter applications.
Series 45000 TWC only will be used for dual exhaust system (1 unit per bank, 2 units
total). These catalytic converters 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 converters 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—50 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Orders D—353—16, it was determined that
the installation of Series 45000 and 61000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—50
meets the requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.


                                             —3.—

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Miller Catalyzer Corporation‘s
Series 45000 and 61000 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—50 subject to the following conditions:

1. 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.

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
   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.

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 converters and is only a finding that the catalytic converters are exempt from
   the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391.

4. 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.

5. 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.

6. 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.

7. 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 equipment
    manufacturer (OEM) catalytic converters.

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 the Air Resources Board
   prior to shipment.
