IV.     EUEL INJECTION KIT DESCRIPTION

            The Performer Multi—Point Electronic Fuel Injection Conversion Kit

is designed for installation on 1987—95 vehicles originally equipped with a

General Motors 5.7 or 7.4 liter throttle body injected engine,             excluding the

two following 1995 model—year engine families:            §3G5.785GBEB & S3GS5.7J5GIEA.

            The purpose of converting an engine from throttle body injection to

multi—point injection is to increase the engine‘s performance and power

output.     The Performer Multi—Point Electronic Fuel Injection Conversion Kit

includes the following main components:           Intake manifold, EPROM,    fuel rails,

fuel regulator, fuel pump, 8 Magnetti Marelli Pico injectors,             and all the
                                            —1—


necessary hardware and electrical components for proper installation.             The new

components are designed to transform the vehicle‘s throttle body fuel

injection system to a more sophisticated multi—point fuel injected system

without any major modifications to the vehicle‘s electronic control unit (ECU)

or wiring harness.

             The installation of the Performer Multi—Point Electronic Fuel

Injection Conversion Kit modifies the existing throttle body to cperate as an

air valve.     The ECU is modified with a new EPROM,      and an additional fuel pump

is installed by the stock fuel filter.          The stock in;ake manifold is removed

and replaced with the intake manifold provided by Edelbrock.            The installation

of Edelbrock‘s fuel injection kit does not require the removal of any emission

related components or sensors.

v.         DISCUSSION OF THE FUEL INJECTION KIT

             A 1994 Chevrolet C1500 truck with a 5.7L engine was used for the

evaluation of the fuel injection kit.          Testing consisted of one Cold Start

CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure in the modified configuration.            The dynamometer

inertia weight and horsepower settings were 5250—lbs and 14.8 hp,

respectively.     The emissions testing was conducted by the Edelbrock

Corporation,    data was evaluated against the vehicle‘s emission standards with

deterioration factors (Dfs)       applied.    Confirmatory testing was performed at

the Air Resources Board‘s (ARB‘s) Haagen—Smit Laboratory.            Table 2.   list those

results.

                                         Table 2.

                                       NMHC         co    NOx

   Device w/ Dfs at Edelbrock          0.34         5.2    0.75
 Device w/ Dfs at Haagen—Smit          0.39         6.1    0.61
                    Standards          0.50         9.0    1.0

           Emission test results submitted by Edelbrock and confirmed by the

ARB were below the vehicle‘s applicable emission standards with deterioration

factors applied.     Therefore,   based on the test results,      the staff concludes

that the installation of the fuel injection kit will not have an adverse

effect on exhaust emissions on those applicable vehicles when operated similar

to the CVS—~75 Federal Test Procedure.

           The Edelbrock Corporation has spbmitted all the required information

and fulfilled the requirements for an exemption.
