Code for 6 to 12 volt negative ground cars using battery/coil ignition
systems except the following:

1.   Vehicles originally equipped with an electronic ignition system whether
     it is a breakerless, capacitive discharge, or transistorized type.

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 performance of the vehicle‘s poliution control
devices shall invalidate this Executive Order.
