                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                              EXECUTIVE ORDER D—665—4
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                   of the Vehicle Code

                               Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.
                        "Series 670000 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 670000 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—665—4 and incorporated herein. Series 670000 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 2HNXVO1.7TAS, certified
to the passenger car and Uitra Low Emission Vehicle emission standards (PC, ULEV),
showed that the vehicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 670000 TWC
(1 unit) installed. OBD II compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that
Series 670000 TWC did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD 11 system monitoring.
The following are the test results in grams per mile:

                                   NMOG          CO           NOx

                                              «9.

WHEREAS, evaluation of Series 670000 TWC using the procedures and criteria specified in
Section (5)(B) of the "California Evaluation Procedures for New Aftermarket Catalytic
Converters" as adopted on October 25, 2007, showed that the catalytic converter meets the
requirements for proper MIL illumination demonstration.

THEREFORE, IT 18 HEREBY RESOLVED that Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.‘s 670000 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—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 their 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 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.

   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.

   Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.‘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.

   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.

   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.

   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.
