Test Procedure (SFTP) test cycle. Examination of the OBD II system showed that the
supercharger kit did not affect OBD II system operation. Results from emission testing
conducted at Quantum Technologies, located at Lake Forest, California, are shown below, in
grams per mile, with deterioration factors (df) applied to Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test
Procedure modified test results.
