                                  State of California
                               AIR RESOURCES BOARD

                             EXECUTIVE ORDER D—665—8
                Relating to Exemptions under Section 27156 and 38391
                                  of the Vehicle Code

                               Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.
                        "Series 840300 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 840300 three—way catalytic converter (TWC) for installation on selected 1996 through
2000 Honda passenger cars (PC) equipped with on—board diagnostic II (OBD II) systems as
specified in Appendix D—665—8 and incorporated herein. Series 840300 TWC will be used for
a single (1 unit) close—coupled catalytic converter system application for the selected
Honda PC having engine codes D16Y5 and D16Y7. 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 2000 1.6L Honda Civic, test group YHNXVO1.6CA3, certified
to the passenger car and Low Emission Vehicle emission standards (PC, LEV), showed that
the vehicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 840300 TWC (1 unit) installed.

OBD |I compatibility tests performed on the same test vehicle showed that Series 840300
TWC did not affect the vehicle‘s ability to perform OBD II system monitoring. The following
are the test results in grams per mile:

                                   NMOG         CO           NOx
100K Standards                     0.090        4.2          0.3
Series 840300 Test 1               0.077        1.2          0.2
Series 840300 Test 2               0.083        1.8          0.2


                                              2.

WHEREAS, evaluation of Series 840300 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 itlumination demonstration.

THEREFORE, IT IS HEREBY RESOLVED that Eastern Manufacturing, Inc.‘s 840300 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—8 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.

                                               —3.

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.

9. Eastern, its associates, vendors, other businesses, and individuals associated with
   Eastern, may not sell or supply new aftermarket catalytic converter substrates to a 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 (f)(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 ()(4) of the "California Evaluation Procedures for
   New Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," as adopted on October 25, 2007.

order may be revoked only after a 30—day written notice of intention to revoke it, during which
period the hoider 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.

Executed at El Monte, California, this   é      day of April 2011.
