                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D—353—58
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                              Miller Catalyzer Corporation
                     "Series 60000 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 60000
 three—way catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1995 through 2004 model year Ford
—passenger cars and light—duty trucks 1 equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD—II)
 systems as specified in Appendix D—353—58 and incorporated herein. Series 60000 TWC
 will be used for single or multiple catalytic converter systems.

 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 75 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 11 compatibility tests conducted by Miller
 Catalyzer Corporation using a vehicle of weight classification and exhaust configuration
 similar to those listed in Appendix D—353—58 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV)
 standards resulted in the issuance of Executive Orders D—353—24, it was determined that
 the installation of Series 60000 on the vehicles listed in Appendix D—353—58 meets the
 requirements of California regulation for aftermarket catalytic converters.

 THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Miller Catalyzer Corporation‘s 60000              _
 TWCs are exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391

   that could make them appear to perform better than the original equipment
   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
