                                   State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D-562-34
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                 of the Vehicle Code

                              Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. CarTex)
                        "Series 12600 Three-way Catalytic Converter"

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 12600 three-way catalytic
converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2004 Ford medium-duty vehicles
(MDV) equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-ll) systems as specified in
Appendix D-562-34 and incorporated herein. Series 12600 TWC will be used for a single
catalytic converter application for the selected Ford trucks. The catalytic converter is to be
sold for universal application only.

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
Sections 271 56 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 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 5.9L Dodge Durango equipped with single exhaust system, and certified to Low
Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards and medium-duty vehicle 2 (MDV2) weight classification
showed that the vehicle met applicable emission standards for LEVIMDV2 with Series 12600
(1 unit) installed. OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that
Series 12600 TWC did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform OBD II system monitoring.
Emission test results in grams per mile are shown below:

                            NMOG          CO            NOx
120K Standards              0.230         6.4           0.6

Series 12600 Test 2         0.175         3.1           0.6


THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Valina, lnc.'s 12600 TWC is exempted from
the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for installation on the approved
vehicle applications specified in Appendix D-562-34 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 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 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 this product 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 Sections 27156 and 38391.

   4. Valina, lnc.'s installation instructions for the new catalytic converter 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 converter 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 converter 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
      converter as "high Row 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 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.

   9. Valina, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and individuals associated with
      Valina, may not sell or supply new aftermarket catalytic converter substrates to a

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