                                  State of California
                              AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D-562-33
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                 of the Vehicle Code

                             Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. CarTex)
                  "Series 12300 & 12100 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, Valina, Inc. (Valina) of 4560 Worth Street, Los Angeles, California 90069, 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 12300 & 12100 three-way
catalytic converters (TWC) on selected 1997 through 2004 Ford medium-duty vehicles
(MDV) equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems as specified in
Appendix D-562-33 and incorporated herein. Series 12300 & 12100 TWCs will be used for
dual exhaust systems with multiple catalytic converters for the selected Ford trucks as shown
in Appendix D-562-33. The catalytic converters are to be sold for universal application only.
The catalytic converters were previously exempted for this appli'cation as Series 12301 &
12311.

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 USA 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 Valina, Inc.
using a 2000 4.6L Ford F-150 equipped with dual exhaust system, and certified to Low
Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards and medium-duty vehicle 2 (MDV2) weight classification
showed that the vehicle met applicable emissjon standards for LEVlMDV2 with Series 12300
& 12100 (2 units) installed. OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle
showed that Series 12300 & 12100 TWC did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform OBD l l
system monitoring. Emission test results in grams per mile are shown below:

                                  NMOG          CO           NOx
120K Standards                    0.230         6.4          0.6
Series 12300 & 12100 Test 1       0.220         1.5          0.4
Series 12300 & 12100 Test 2       0.219         1.6          0.4


THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Valina, lnc.'s 12300 & 12100 TWC are
exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for installation on
the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D-562-33 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 catalylic 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 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
     converters and is only a finding that the catalytic converters are exempt from the
     prohibitions of Vehicle Code Sections 27 156 and 38391.

  4. Valina, lnc.'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. Valina, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket catalytic
      converters as "high flow or easy flow" catalytic converter 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 converters 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.

   9. Valina, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and individuals associated with
      Valina, may not sell or supply new aftermarket catalytic converter substrates to a
                   VALINA, INC. - CATALYTIC CONVERTER - D-562-33


   third party to be assembled in a different facility and marketed under this Executive
   Order without approval from the Air Resources Board.
