                                EXECUTIVE ORDER D-665
                  Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                               Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.
                        "Series 840100 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, Eastern Manufacturing, Inc. (Eastern) of 2151 Cabot Blvd., West Longhorne,
Pennsylvania 19047, 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 840100 three-way catalytic converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through
2002 HondaiAcura passenger cars (PC) equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD-II)
systems as specified in Appendix D-665 and incorporated herein. Series 840100 TWC will
be used for a single (1 unit) catalytic converter system application for the selected
HondalAcura PC. The catalytic converter may be sold as a universal or 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
Johnson Matthey Environmental Catalysts using the Air Resources Board-modified RATA
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 the Environmental Research & Development Corp,
Ijamsville, Maryland, using a 2001 3.OL Honda Accord, test group 1HNXV03.0M5U, certified
to the passenger car and Low Emission Vehicle emission standards (PC, LEV), showed that
the vehicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 840100 TWC (1 unit) installed.
OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 840100
TWC did not affect the vehicle's ability to perform OBD II system monitoring. However,
Series 840100 did not comply with the "Proper MIL Illumination Demonstration" required
under the new procedures effective January 1, 2009. The following are the test results in
grams per mile:

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Eastern Manufacturing, lnc.'s 840100
TWC is exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Sections 27156 and 38391 for
installation on the approved vehicle applications specified in Appendix D-665 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 Eastern
   Manufacturing, 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. Eastern Manufacturing, I n c h 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. Eastern Manufacturing, Inc. and its vendors may not advertise the new aftermarket
   catalytic converter 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 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.


             EASTERN MANUFACTURING, INC. - CATALYTIC CONVERTER - D-665


9. Eastern, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and individuals associated with

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

10. Eastern Manufacturing, Inc. shall comply with the quality control procedures and
    reporting requirements in Section (9(5) of the "California Evaluation Procedures for
    New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted October 25, 2007.

11. Quality control reports must be submitted on a quarterly basis and warranty
    information reports must be submitted on a semi-annual basis.

    requirements as specified under Section (9(4) of the "California Evaluation
    Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted on October 25,
    2007.

14.Since Series 840100 did not comply with "Proper MIL Illumination Demonstration"
   (PMID), this Executive Order expires two years from the date of signature unless
   Eastern Manufacturing, Inc. designs and successfully tests a replacement catalytic
   converter for Series 840 100.

The order may be revoked only after a 30-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 30 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.

                                   EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.

Name of Device: Series 840100 Three-way Catalytic Converter (TWC).

Background:
             Eastern Manufacturing, Inc. (Eastern) of 2151 Cabot Blvd, West Langhorne,
Pennsylvania 19047, has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the
California Vehicle Code (VC) for its Series 840100 new aftermarket TWC. The new aftermarket
catalytic converter is for installation on selected 1996 through 2002 HondaIAcura passenger
cars equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD II) systems.

Recommendation:
           Grant exemption to Eastern Manufacturing, Inc. as requested, and issue Executive
Order D-665.

Device Description:
              Eastern's Series 840100 new afterrnarket TWC is designed to use two round
ceramic monolith substrates. The front substrate has a diameter of 4.16 inches and length of
4.50 inches. The rear substrate has a diameter of 4.16 inches and a length of 3.80 inches.
The total volume of the two substrates is 113 cubic inches. The substrates are contained in a
shell constructed from 409-grade stainless steel. The substrates are wrapped with 3M interim
mat paper, to prevent vibration and exhaust by-pass. The wrapped substrates are then sealed
in the stainless steel shell by seam weld. A piece of aluminized heat shield is spot-welded to
the upper side of the converter to protect the vehicle's underbody from excessive heat. The
catalytic converter is to be used as a replacement on selected HondaIAcura OBD 11-equipped
passenger cars with a single catalytic converter. The catalytic converter is sold with a warranty
for five years or 50,000 miles on the substrates, the container or shell, and the end pipes.
             Johnson Matthey Environmental Catalysts (Johnson Matthey) is the catalyst
supplier for ~a'stern'sSeries 840100 TWC.

Discussion/Basis for Exemption Recommendation:
            Eastern submitted data or1 the Series 840100 TWC from testing conducted at
Environmental Research & Development Corp (ERDC), ljamsville, Maryland. Johnson Matthey
performed the catalyst bench aging at its Wayne, Pennsylvania laboratory using the
ARB-modified RAT A cycle for 75 hours as specified in Appendix A of "California Evaluation
Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007.
Emission tests were conducted using a 2001 3.OL Honda Accord, engine test group
1HNXV03.0M5U1equipped with a single catalyst system with Series 840100 TWC installed.
The test vehicle was certified to the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV) standards and PC weight
category (LEVIPC). The odometer reading on the test vehicle was 62,484 miles.
            The evaluation of the new aftermarket catalytic converter is based on the bench
aging by Johnson Matthey, and emissions and OBD-II compatibility tests performed by ERDC.
The vehicle application coverage for the new Series 840100 TWC will be 1996 through 2002
selected HondalAcura OBD II passenger cars equipped with a single catalytic converter.
