                   Device for Exemption from the
                Prohibitions of Section 27156 or
                           the Vehicle Code



I.    Introduction

      Riverside Performance Products Company, Los Angeles, California has

      applied for an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of

      the Vehicle Code for its "Air—Flow Needle" device.     This section

      prohibits the installation of any device which reduces the effective—

      ness of required motor vehicle emission control systems.     The spplicant

      is requeéting the exemption_be.granted for 1974 aqd older model—year

      vehicles with engine displacements over 140 cuble inches.


Iio   System Description and Function

      The "Air—Flow Needle" device is installed in the carburetor and replaces

      the OBM idle jets.    The device is a 1—3/4 inch long externally threaded

      hollow rod with a 0.052 diemeter orifice at one end.    .See Figure 1.   The

      OFEM jet is used to determine the location of lock nuts threaded on the

      rod to provide the proper length jet.


      The applicant states that the device will improve fuel economy by leaning

      the air/fuel mixture.

III. > ARB Evaluations

      The "Air—Flow Needle" device is similar in Gdesign and identical in

      operation to a previously evaluated device, the "Econo-Née%dé“.      In

      its evaluation of the "Econo-Née%fi;" device, the staff determined

      that the 0.6 CFM gir bleed capabilities of the device did not

      significantly increase exhaust emissions of 1969 and older model—

      year vehicles with engine'displacements of over L140 cubic inches.


      Recommendations and Conclusions

      It is the opinion 0f the staff that the "Air—Flow Needle" device

      is identical in operation as the "Econo—Needle" device.


      Therefore, it is recommended that Riverside Performance Product

      Company be granted an exemption from the prohibitions of Vehicle

      Code Section 27156 for its "Air—Flow Needle" device for installation

      of 1969 and older model—year vehicles equipped with engine displace—

     ‘ments over 140 cubic inches.
