                 Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                              Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. Car Tex)
                        "Series 14800 Three—way Catalytic Converter"

 applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code
 Sections 27156 and 38391 to market its new aftermarket Series 14800 three—way catalytic
 converter (TWC) for installation on selected 2001 through 2005 Honda passenger cars (PC) —
 equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD II) systems as specified in Appendix D—562—49
 and incorporated herein. Series 14800 TWC will be used for a single (1 .unit) close—coupled
 catalytic converter system application for the selected Honda PC. The catalytic converter will
 be sold as a direct fit system.

  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 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 Autocat USA Inc. 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, emissions tests conducted at Automotive Testing and Development Services,
 Inc., Ontario, California, using a 2002 1.7L Honda Civic, test group 2HNXVO1.7TAS5, certified
 to the passenger car and Ultra Low Emission Vehicle emission standards (PC, ULEV),
 showed that the vehicle.met the applicable emission standards with Series 14800 TWC
 (1 unit) installed. OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that
 Series 14800 TWC did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD11 system monitoring.
 The following are the test results in grams per mlle:
