                                 State of California
                             AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D-562-3
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                           Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. Car Tex)
           "Series 12200 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 exerr~ptnew aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 27156.

WHEREAS, Valina, Inc. (Valina) of 2035 East Vernon Avenue, Vernon, California 90058, has
applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 12200 three-way catalytic converter
(TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2001 model year General Motors trucks
equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-ll) systems as specified in Appendix D-562-3 and
incorporated herein. The Series 12200 TWC will be used for dual (two units) 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-562-3.

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 100 hours, as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket
Non-original Equipment Catalytic Converters Eq~~ipped   with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II)
Systems."

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at Siemens VDO Automotive Test Center (Siemens),
Auburn Hills, Michigan, using a 1999 5.7L Chevrolet Suburban truck equipped with dual
exhaust system, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV, MDV3) emission standards
showed that the vehicle met the applicable emission standards for LEVlMDV2 with Series
12200 TWCs (two units) installed.

OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 12200
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-562-3 subject to the following conditions:

       1     No changes are 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 components 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 exempt 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. - CATALY1-I,': CONVERTER - D-562-3


       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 the Air Resources
              Board prior to shipment.

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   ~ 7 ~ day
                                               ' of April 2006.
