                                 EXECUTIVE ORDER D-562-6
                          Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                       of the Vehicle Code

                                Valina, Inc. (d.b.a. Car Tex)
                "Series 12600 OBD II 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 27156.

    WHEREAS, Valina, Inc. (Valina, Inc.) of 2035 East Vernon Avenue, Vernon, California
    90058, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle
    Code Section 271 56 to market its new aftermarket Series 12600 three-way catalytic'
    converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through 2001 model year General Motors
    (GM) trucks equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II) systems as specified in Appendix
    D-562-6 and incorporated herein. The Series 12600 TWC will be used for single (1 unit) or
    dual (2 units) exhaust system applications for selected GM trucks.

    Series 12600 TWC may also be installed on non-OBD ll vehicles (1995 and older) similar in
    engine and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D-562-6.

    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, Air Resources Board finds that
    the above aftermarket catalytic converter complies with the California Vehicle Code
    Section 271 56 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 Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II)
    Systems."

    WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by Valina, Inc.
    using a vehicle of a weight classification and exhaust con'figuration sirr~ilarto those listed in
    Appendix D-562-6 and certified to Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards resulted in the
    issuance of Executive Order D-562-2, it was determined that the installation of Series 12600
    TWC on the vehicles listed in Appendix D-562-6 meets the requirements of California
    regulations for aftermarket catalytic converters.

    IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that the above catalytic converter is exempt from the prohibitions
    in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for installation on the vehicles listed in Appendix D-562-6
a   subject to the following conditions:


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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

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 them appear to perform better than an OEM catalytic converter.

The new aftermarket catalytic converter substrate may not be sold or supplied
to a third party by Valina, Inc., its associates, vendors, other businesses, and
individuals associated with Valina, Inc., to be assembled in a different facility
and marketed under this Executive Order.

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 Air Resources Board
prior to shipment.

Valina, Inc. must submit the required quality audit and production quantity
reports for its aftermarket catalytic converter semi-annually, 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,

grounds for revocation exist.
