                                 Staff Report


                       Evaluation of Adroit Products, Inc.
                   "Power Air Booster" for Exemption to
                   the Prohibitions of Section 27156 of
                          the Motor Vehicle Code




        Introduction

        Adroit Products, Inc., Mew Baltimore, Michigan, has applied for

        exemption to the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Motor Yehicle

        Code for the "Power Air Booster" air vent.       The exemption has

        been requested for 1966 through 1972 model year American Mctorfi,

        Chrysler, Ford and General NMotors (except Chevrolet ¥ega) vehicles

        with non—heated carburetor inlet ajr.      Section 27156 prohibits
        the installation of any device which reduces the effectiveness of

        motor vehicle emission control systems.     The applicant claims the

        device improves performance and fuel economy.


        The Air Resources Board has adopted criteria for the evaluation of

        "after—market" devices for compliance with Section 27156.      The basfs

        for evaluation is defined in the "Air Resources Board Critéria for

        Determining Compliance with Section 27156 of the Motor YVehicle Code",

        dated February 17, 1971.


I1. ©   System Description

        The device consists of a urethane filter, slotted spacer ring and

        assembly hardware (see attached photographs). The slotted spacer ring


"Power Air Booster"                                         May 25, 1973



       is fnstalled between the lid and body of the air cleaner.     The

       filter is installed under the air cleaner to compensate for the

       extra height of the air clearer lid.


I11.   System Function

       The applicant states that the "Power Air Booster" allows air to enter

       the atr filter element around its entire periphery thereby creating a

       more uniformdistribution pattern of the air entering the carburetor.

       It is claimed that this feature and the added air filtering area

       improve the engine fuel economy and performance.


IV.    System Evaluation

       Emfsstam and fuel consumption tests conducted by the Air Resources

       Bcard Latboratory were performed on a 1968 Plymouth with a 383 CID

       ¥—8 engine,, 4—Bb1. non—heated inlet air     carburetor and automatic

       transmrmmr        Before the test, the vehicle was inspected to assure

       that the engine and exhaust system were in proper operating condition.


       The z."esufl:s of the baseline and device hot CVS and fuel consumption

       tests are as follows:

                                            Hot CVS
                                       Emissions—Cms/Mi      Fuel Consumption
                                       HC      CO    NOx        Gms/Test

       Baseltne                        3.77   32.64 4.89         1598

       Eevice                         3.86    32.71 4.70         1548


       These datz indicate that the installation of the device has no

       signfficant effect on the exhaust emissions and fuel consumption of

       the test vehicie.


"Power Air Booster"                                      May 25, 1973



       Conclusions and Recommendations

       It fs the staff opifiion that the Adroit Products, INc., "Power Air
