                            EXECU'I-IVE ORDER D-562-10
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                           Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. Car Tex)
           "Series 12400 OBD ll Compliant Three-way Catalytic Converter"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and Section 2222(h), Title 13, California Code of
Regulations (hereafter "CCR"), authorize the California Air Resources Board and its
Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 271 56.

WHEREAS, Valina, Inc. (Valina) of 4560 Worth Street, Los Angeles, California 90063, has
applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
Section 271 56 to market its new aftermarket Series 12400 three-way catalytic converter
(TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2001 model year HondaIAcura passenger
cars equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems as specified in Appendix
D-562-10 and incorporated herein. The Series 12400 TWC will be used for single (one unit)
exhaust system applications.

The TWC may also be installed on non-OBD II vehicles (1995 and older) similar in engine
and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D-562-10.

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 converter complies with the California Vehicle Code
Section 27156 and Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222(h). The emissions
performance of the catalytic converter was based on durability bench-aging by Umicore
Automotive Catalyst Corporation using Air Resources Board-modified RAT-A bench-aging
cycle for 75 hours, as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket
Non-original Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II)
Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at Siemens ADO Automotive Test Center (Siemens),
Auburn Hills, Michigan, using a 1998 2.3L Honda Accord equipped with a single exhaust
system, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV, PC) emission standards showed
that the vehicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 12400 TWC (one unit)
installed.

OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 12400
TWC did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform OBD II system monitoring. Emission test
results in grams per mile are shown below.

        IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
        in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the approved vehicle applications specified
        in Appendix D-562-10 subject to the following conditions:

              1      No c h a ~ g e sare permitted to the catalytic converter as described in the
                     application for exemption. Any changes to the catalytic converter or any of its
                     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 converter using identifications other than those shown
                     in the exemption application, and in this Executive Order, or marketing of the
                     catalytic converter 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 corrlponents of the catalytic
                     converter as individual devices.

              3.     Any oral or written references to this Executive Order or its content by Valina,
                     Inc., 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 converter and is only a finding that the
                     catalytic converter is exerrlpt from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code
                     Section 27156.

              4.     Valina, Inc.'s installation instructions for the new catalytic converter must
                     conform to requirements in Paragraphs I and X of the "Optional Evaluation
                     Procedures for New Aftermarket Non-original Equipment Catalytic Converters
                     Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II) Systems."

               5.    Upon installation, the catalytic converter must carry a manufacturer's warranty
                     for 50,000 miles on the substrates and 50,000 miles or five years on the shell
                     and end pipes.

              6.     Valina, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket catalytic
                     converter as a "high or easy flow" catalytic converter or use any phrase that
                     could make it appear to perform better than an OEM catalytic converter.


                              VALINA, INC. - CATALYTIC CONVERTER - D-562-10


           7.     Valina, Inc., its associates, vendors, other businesses, and individuals may not
                  sell or supply the substrates of the new aftermarket catalytic converter to a third
                  party to be assembled in a different facility and marketed under this Executive
                  Order.

           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 ARB prior to shipment.

           9.     Valina must submit the required quality audit and production quantity reports for
                  its aftermarket catalytic converters on a semi-annual basis, covering the periods
                  January 1 through June 30, and July 1 through December 31.

    Violation of any of the above conditions shall be grounds for revocation of this order. The
    order may be revoked only after a ten day written notice of intention to revoke it, during which
    period the holder of the order may request in writing a hearing to contest the proposed
    revocation. If a hearing is requested, it shall be held within ten days of receipt of the request,
    and the order may not be revoked until a determination is made, after the hearing, that
    grounds for revocation exist.

.   Executed at El Monte, California, this   z      day of January 2008.
