    IV.     PERFORMER 600 SERIES EMISSION CARBURETOR DESCRIPTION

'          The Performer 600 Series Emission Carburetor, part no.     1400,   are

    specifically designed for installation on 1980 and §1der non—feedback

    General Motors vehicles powered by a V8B gasoline engine.      The carburetors

    operaté in conjunction with the original equipment manufacturer (OEM)

    emission control system already certified with the stock engines.          The

                                            —1—


purpose of using the Performer 600 Series Emission Carburetor, part no. 1400

is to offer a direct replacement new carburetor for 1980 and older GM V8

vehicles.

     The following are the specifications of the Performer 600 Series

Emission Carbure;or, part no.     1460:   electric choke, pr;maty bore 1.44",

secondary bore 1,69",     idle jet 0.031", primary main jet 0.098", secondary

main jet 0.095", inlet seat 0.0955", pump jef 0.028",            spark advance port

0.136" x 0.4",   EGR port 0.1" x‘0.04", metering rod 0.075" x70.047",          and

step—up spring 5.0" orange.

v.      DISCUSSION OF THE PERFORMER 600 SERIES EMISSION CARBURETOR

        A 1979 Chevrolet El Camino powered by a 5.7L engine was used for

the evaluation of the Performer 600 Series Emission Carburetor, part no.

1400.     The dynamometer inertia Yeight and 16ading used during the testing

were 4000 lbs. and 12.2 hp, respectively.

        The Edelbrock Corporation submitted emission test results conducted by

the Edelbrock Emissions Laborato;y which consistea of one (cold start) CVS—

75 FTP on the vehicle_in the baseline configuration (Rochester Quadrajet

installed)    followed by one (cold start) CVS—75 FTP on the vehicle in the

modified configuration (Performer 600 geries Emission Carburetor, part no.

1400 installed)..      The test results are shown in Table 1.

                                          Table 1

                                   CVs—75 TEST RESULTS

                            (Edelbrock Emissions Laboratory)


                                          BC          co         Nox

                                                  (grams/mile)

          Baseline                         0.32        1.93       1.91

          Modified                   Do    o.2e       a.31        i.5
          Difference                      ~0.04       0.38       —0.41


      The CVS—75 emissions téest results at the Edelbrock Emissions Laboratory

show that the difference between the HC, CO and NOx emission levels of the

device emission test result and the baseline emission test results are within

the 10 percent or 0.1 g/mi increase allowed in HC and NOx, or 15 percent or 1.0

g/mi increase in CO as allowed under "The Procedures for Exemption of Add—On

and Modified Parts".   This demonstrates that the installation of the Performér

600 Series Emission Carburetor, part no. 1400 will—not adversely affect the

exhaust emissiong of the appligablé vehicles.   The Air éesources Board did not

conduct confirmatory testing to validate the emission test results submitted by

the Edelbrock Corporation.

       The Edelbgock Corporation‘has submitted all the required information and

fulfilled the requirements for an exemption.
