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

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

Marketing of this Cyclone device, using an identificatisn other than that
shown in this Executive Order or marketing of this Cycione device, for an
application other than those listed in this Executive Order shall be
prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the 228.

In addition to the foregoing, the ARB reserves the righ: in the future to
reviey this Executive Order and the exemption provided Serein to assure that
the exempted add—on or modified part continues to meet the standards and
procedures of Title 13, California Code of Regulations, Section 2222 et seq.

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

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES.NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE AIR RZSOURCES BOARD OF

                                    SUMMARY



     KID,   of 21308 Pathfinder #208, Diamond Bar, California,   91765, has

applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the

California Vehicle Code (VC)   for their Cyclone device.   The Cyclone device

is designed for installation on vehicles as listed in Appendix A.

     KID has submitted a completed application and all required information

including samples of the individual models.    Based on an engineering

evaluation,   it was determined that the Cyclone device would not have any

significant adverse effects in emissions if tested in accordance with the

Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure.

     The staff recommends that KID be granted exemption as requested and

that Executive Order D—267 be issued for the Cyclone device.

                      EVALUATION OF KID‘S CYCLONE DEVICE
              FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE
        SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE
                       CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS



I.     INTRODUCTION

       KID, of 21308 Pathfinder #208, Diamond Bar, California, 91765 has

applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the

California Vehicle Code (VC) for their Cyclone device.    The Cyclone device is

designed for installation on the vehicles listed in Appendix A.

       KID has submitted a complete application and all the required

information including samples of the individual models.

II.    CONCLUSIONS

       Based on an engineering evaluation of the device, the staff concludes

installation of the KID Cyclone device will not adversely affect exhaust

emissions from vehicles for which an exemption is requested.

III.   RECOMMENDATION

       The staff recommends that KID be granted an exemption as requested and

that Executive Order D—267 be issued for the Cyclone device.

IV.    DEVICE DESCRIPTION

       The Cyclone device is a vehicle—specific component used to increase

turbulence in the air intake passage.   It is cylindrical in shape with six (6)

blades connecting at the cylinder‘s center (see drawing in Appendix B).     It is

constructed using copper sheet, cut to shape, and tack welded together.

       The device is inserted into the air intake passage between the air

filter and the throttle body, upstream of the air metering device.    No

sensors are relocated or altered by the device‘s installation.    The tension of

the device‘s outer surface holds the device in place.


v.     CYCLONE DEVICE EVALUATION AND DISCUSSION

       An engineering evaluation was conducted to evaluate the impact of the

Cyclone device on emissions.

       The manufacturer claims the Cyclone device creates turbulence in the

intake air.   In the staff‘s evaluation, the device is located relatively far

upstream from the air flow metering device, therefore, the induced turbulence

will not affect the air flow measurement.   The manufacturer supplied CVS—75 FTP

test results conducted at the Automobile Club of Southern California using a

1991 Ford Taurus tested with and without the device.

The results are as follows:



       Test                     HC am/mi    co am/mi        Kox am/mi

       Baseline #1              0.324        3.437          0.206

       Baseline #2              0.302        3.201          0.202

       With Device              0.309        3. 224         0.204




These test results support staff‘s opinion that turbulence induced in the

intake tract have no significant effect on the emissions.    Based on engineering

evaluation of the supplied information, staff determined the Cyclone device

will not increase emissions.
