                                  State of California
                             AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                            EXECUTIVE ORDER D-613-4
                     Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                  Advanced Car Specialties Limited (d.b.a. RiteCat)
           "Series 44000 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 exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
Vehicle Code Section 271 56.

WHEREAS, Advanced Car Specialties Limited (ACS) of 1865 Birchmount Road, Toronto,
Ontario, Canada M I P 2J5, has applied to the Air Resources Board for exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 to market its new aftermarket Series 44000
three-way catalytic converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1995 through 2003 model
year Toyota passenger cars and light-duty trucks 1 equipped with on-board diagnostic II
(OBD-II) systems as specified in Appendix D-613-4 and incorporated herein. The Series
44000 TWC will be used for single exhaust with one or two units in series or dual exhaust
with two units.

The TWC may alsobe installed on non-OBD II vehicles (1995 and older) similar in engine
and exhaust configuration to those listed in Appendix D-613-4.

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 75 hours, as specified in the "Optional Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket
Non-original Equipment Catalytic Converters Equipped with On-Board Diagnostic II (OBD II)

WHEREAS, emissions tests conducted at Automotive Testing and Development Services
(ATDS), Ontario, California, using a 2000 1.5L Toyota Echo equipped with a single exhaust
system, and certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV, PC) emission standards showed
that the vehicle met the applicable err~issionstandards with Series 44000 TWC (one unit)

OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 44000
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-613-4 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
               Advanced Car Specialties Limited, 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.      Advanced Car Specialties Limited'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.      Advanced Car Specialties Limited 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.


      7.     Advanced Car Specialties Limited, 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 ARB prior to shipment.

       9.     ACS must submit the required quality audit and production quantity reports for
              its aftermarket catalytic converters on a semi-annual basis, 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 reql~ested,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   //     day of December 2007.
