                       RAM JET COLD AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM


Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code; and

Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39515 and Section
39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—9;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of the Ram Jet Cold Air
Induction System, produced and marketed by Banshee Performance, 1212 E. Walnut
Ave., Orange, Calffornia 92867, has been found not to reduce the éefféectivenessofthe
applicable vehicle pollution control systems and, therefore, is exempt from the
prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for the 1986 to 1993 model—year 5.0
liter V—8 Ford Mustang.

The Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System consists of a hood seoop, airbox, an open—
element reusable air filter; assorted brackets, tubing, and hardware.

This Executive Order is valid provided that the installation instructions for the Ram Jet
Cold Air Induction System will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those of the vehicle manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction
System, as exempt by the Air Resources Board, which adversely affect the performance
of the vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

This Executive Order shall not ap.ply to any'Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System
advertised, offered for sale, sold with, or installed on, a motor vehicle prior to or
concurrent with transfer to an ulitimate purchaser.

Enmind




         Marketing of the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System using any identification other than
         that shown in this Executive Order or marketing of the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction
         System for an application otherthan those listed in this Executive Order shall be
         prohibited unless prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.

          This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect the use of the Ram
          Jet Cold Air Induction System may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by
         _the vehicle manufacturer.

          This Executive Order is granted based on a determination that the Ram Jet Cold Air
          Induction System will not adversely affecttailpipe emissions when tested under the _
          Cold Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure. No systems that affect the Cold Start
          CVS—75 or running loss emissions are bypassed in installing the Ram Jet Cold Air
          Induction System. However, the ARB finds that reasonable grounds exist to believe
          that use of the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System may adversely affect emissions of
          motor vehicles when operating under conditions outside the parameters of the CVS—75
          Federal Test Procedure. Accordingly, the ARB reserves the right to conduct additional
          emission tests, in the future, as such tests are developed, that will more adequately
          measure emissions from all cycle phases. If such test results demonstrate that the
          Ram Jet ColdAir induction Systemadversely affects emissions during off—cycle |
          conditions (defined asthose conditions which are beyond the parameters of the
          Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure}, this Executive Order shall be effectively
          rescinded as of the date the test results are validated. Further, if such test results or
          other evidence provides the ARB with reason to suspect that the Ram Jet Cold Air
          Induction System will affect the durability of the emission control system, Banshee
          Performance, shall be required to submit durability data to show that the durability of
          the vehicle emission control system is not, in fact, affected and/or that the add—on or
          modified part demonstrates adequate durability.

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

          THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION,
          ACCREDITATION, APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT BY THE
          AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING
          ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY ALLEGED BENEFITS OF BANSHEE
          PERFORMANCE‘S RAM JET COLD AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM.

                                      SUMMARY



      Banshee Performance, of 1212 E. Walnut Ave., Orange, California 92867, has

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

‘Code (VC) for the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System designed for the 1986 to 1993

model—year 5.0 liter V—8 Ford Mustang.                                            |

           Based on an engineering evaluation of the impact on emissions with the Ram

Jet Cold Air Induction System installed, the staff concludes that the Ram Jet Cold Air

Induction System will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for which the

exemption is requested.

           The staff recommends that Banshee Performance, be grantéd an exemption

as requested and that Executive Order D—508 be issued.

                  SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE
                                 CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS


              1. INTRODUCTION
                    Banshee Performance, of 1212 E. Walnut Ave., Orange, California 92887, has

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

              Code (VC) for the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System designed for the 1986 to 1993

              model—year 5.0 liter V—8 Ford Mustang.



              II. CONCLUSIONS

                         Based on an engineeringevaluation of a vehicle with the Ram Jet Cold Air
  Lrtentsm,




              Induction System installed, the staff concludes that the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction

              System wifl not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the vehicles for which the

              exemption is requested.



              II. RECOMMENDATION

                         The staff recommendsthat Banshee Performance, be granted an exemption

              for their Rém Jet Cold Air Induction System for installation on the 1986 to 1993 model—

              year 5.0 liter V—8 Ford Mustang.



              IV. RAM JET COLD AIR INDUCTION SYSTEM DESCRIPTION

                         The intent of installing the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System is to increase

              power output from the engine. The power increase is due to the increase in density of

                                     X


the intake air caused by the hood scoop which draws air from outside of the engine

compartment. Air in the engine compartment is often hotter than the air outside of the

vehicle. The cooler outside air would have a slightly higher density, and supplying the

engine with this denser air charge would produce more power.

           The Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System was designed to be installed on

1986 to 1993 modvel-year 5.0 liter Ford Mustangs. In installing the Ram Jet Cold Air

Induction System, the hood of the vehicle must be cut to accommodate the hood scoop.

The stock‘airbox, and intake tubing are replaced by components of the Ram Jet Cold

Air Induction System. A reusable open—element air filter is used in the airbox supplied

with the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System.



V.         DISCUSSION OF THE RAM JET COLD AIR INDUCTION sYSTEM

           No testing was required to determine the emissions impact of the Ram Jet

Cold Air Induction System. The Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System does not present an

extreme modification. The Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System
                                                        L—Auo does allowfor an




increase in induction efficiency, but unlike a supercharger or turbocharger there is no

provision or requirement for fuel enrichment. Therefore, an adverse effect on emissions

is not expected. Also, the applicable vehicles subject to this Executive Order are not

subject to Low—Emission Vehicle standards or On—Board Diagnostic II requirements, so

no testing was required.

       The staff concludes that the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction‘System meets the

criteria for the exemption of general criteria parts. However, the ARB finds that


reasonable grounds exist to believe that use of the Ram Jet Cold Air Induction System

may adversely affect emissions of motor vehicles when operating under conditions |

outside the parameters of the previously prescribed test procedure. Accordingly, the,

ARB Vreserves the right to conduct additiohal emission tests in the future, as such tests

are developed.

           Banshee Performance, has submitted all the required informafion and fulfilled

the requirements for an exemption.
