M20—C and AFTC—12 Timing Controller, manufactured by Engine Management
Systems, 805—B University Ave., Los Gatos, California 95030 and installed as
a kit has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of the applicable

utilizing an Impco or an Impco—compatible feedback controlled conversion
systems.

this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as exempt
by the Air Resources Board, which adversely daffect the performance of a
vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using any identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of the devices for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior
approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.  Exemption of a kit shall
not be construed as exemption to sell,    offer for sale,   or advertise any
component of a kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the
use of this device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
the vehicle manufacturer.
