               "Series 74000 and 76000 Three-Way Catalytic Converters"

WHEREAS, Vehicle Code (VC) Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, California Code
of Regulations (CCR) Section 2222(h) authorize the Air Resources Board (ARB) and its
Executive Officer to exempt new aftermarket catalytic converters from the prohibitions of
VC Sections 27156 and 38391. ·

WHEREAS, Miller CAT Corporation of 1533. Berger Drive, San Jose, California 95112,
has applied to ARB for exemption from the prohibitions in VC Sections 27156 and 38391
to market its new aftermarket Series 74000 and 76000 three-way catalytic converters
(TWC) on select 2004 through 2006 model-year light-duty trucks [3,751-5,750 lbs. LVW]
LDT2 equipped with on-board diagnostic II (OBD II) systems as specified in Appendix
D-709-2 and incorporated herein. Series 74000 and 76000 TWCs will be used as
replacements on vehicles equipped with manifold converters and multiple catalytic
converter systems .. Series 74000 catalytic converter will be used as the front converter in
direct fit manifold-converter assemblies and Series 76000 catalytic converter will be used
as the rear converter.                    '

WHEREAS, pursuant to the authority vested in the Executive Officer by Health and
Safety Code (HSC) Section 39515 and in the Chief of the Emissions Compliance,
Automotive Regulations and Science Division by HSC Section 39516 and Executive
Order G-14-012, ARB finds that the above aftermarket catalytic converters comply with
VC Sections 27156 and 38395 and Title 13, CCR Section 2222(h). Emission
performance of the catalytic converters was based on durability bench-aging by Umicore
Automotive Catalysts USA (Umicore) using the ARB-modified RAT-A bench-aging cycle
for 100 hours as specified in Appendix A to the "California Evaluation Procedures for New
Aftermarket Catalytic Converters," adopted on October 25, 2007 (Converter Evaluation
Procedures).

WHEREAS, previous emissions and OBD II compatibility tests conducted by Miller CAT
Corporation using a 2006 model-year 2.4 liter Toyota Highlander certified to
ultra-low-emission vehicle emission standards and LDT2 weight classification showed
that the vehicle met the applicable emission standards with Series 74000 and 76000
converters and that Series 74000 and 76000 converters did not falsely cause the
malfunction indicator light to illuminate.

WHEREAS, Miller CAT Corporation conducted proper malfunction indicator light
illumination demonstration with Series 74000 and 76000 converters on the same
Highlander and demonstrated compliance with the requirements in Section (e)(5)(B) of
the Converter Evaluation Procedures. '
