Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39023 of
the Health and Safety Code;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:    That the installation of a "HP Air Injector"
device manufactured by Albano Enterprises has been found to not reduce
the effectiveness of required emission control devices in 1971 and older
model vehicles and therefore is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
27156 of the Vehicle Code for these model—year vehicles. The device is
inserted between the PCV valve and the intake manifold and permits a
small controlled amount of additfonal air to enter the P.C.Y. line.

The "HP Air Injector" device is identical in construction and operation to
the Aibano Enterprises‘ "Air Jet" device.     Reference Resolution 70—54—C.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different than those listed by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device as originally
submitted to the Air Resources Board for evaluation that adversely affect
the vehicle‘s pollution control devices shall invalidate this Executive
Order.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT 8¥ THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF
ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED

or written communication.
