Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Section 39023 of
the Health and Safety Code;

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED: That the installation of a "Perma—Tune"

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions
for this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different than those listed by the vehicle manufacturer.

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

ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE "PERMA—TUNE" DEVICE.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by Air Resources Board" may be
made with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other
oral or written communication.

or misleading advertising and Section 17534 makes violation punishable
as a misdemeanor.

Section 39130 and 39184 of the Health and Safety Code provide as follows:

     "39130.    No person shall install, sell, offer for sale, or advertise,
    or, except in an application to the board for certification of a
    device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle poliution control
    device unless that device has been certified by the board. No
    person shall sell, offer for sale, advertise, or represent any motor
    vehicle pollution control device as a certified device which, in
    fact, is not a certified device. Any violation of this section is
    a misdemeanor."

      or, except in an application to the board for accreditation of a
      device, represent, any device as a motor vehicle pollution control
      device for use on any used motor vehicle unless that device has been
      accredited by the board. No person shall sell, offer for sale, adver—
      tise, or represent any motor vehicle pollution control device as an
      accredited device.   Any violation of this section is a misdemeanor."

                             Staff Report

          Evaluation of Aero Design Products Corporation
            "Perma—Tune" Capacitive Discharge Ignition
             System for Exemption to the Prohibitions
            of Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle Code


      |
I.    fntroduction

      A?ro Design Products Corporation, Newport Beach, California, has

      aļ¬plied for exemption to the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the

      Mqtor Vehicle Code for the "Perma—Tune" capacitive discharge

      iénition system.     Section 27156 prohibits the installation of any

      device which reduces the effectiveness of motor vehicle emission

      control systems.     The applicant intends to sell the device as an

      "after—market" part to replace the standard ignition system.


      The Air Resources Board has adopted criteria for the evaluation

      of "after—market" devices for compliance with Section 27156.     The

      basis for evaluation is defined in the "Air Resources Board Criteria‘

      for Determining Compliance with Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle

      Code", dated February 14, 1973.


II.   System Description

      For a general description of capacitive discharge ignition systems,

      see staff report "Evaluation of Capacitive Discharge and Transistorized


"Perma—Tune"                                   ’        March 16, 1973


       Ignition Systems for Compliance with the Requirements of Section 27156

       of the Motor Vehicle Code", dated February 14, 1973.


       The "Perma—Tune" device consists of a multivibrator d—c to d—c

       converter circuit, a storage capacitor and thyrister (silicon

       controlled rectifier) electronic switch circuit, and a trigger

       éonditioner circuit.   The device is capable of producing a

       a secondary coil voltage rise of 50,000 volts per microsecond.
        \
       Tbe arc discharge current is 0.8 to 1.0 ampere and a spark

       ~energy capacity of 60 millijoules.

        i
III.   Emission Testing

       Because of the number of applications received from manufacturers

       of capacitivé discharge ignition systems, it was decided to test

       one c—d device with ignition design characteristics that are

       considered to be representative of this group.   A Delta Products,

        Inc., "Mark Ten B" system was selected for testing.   The results

       of these tests are shown in the staff report "Evaluation of Capacitive

       Discharge and Transistorized Ignition Systems for Compliance with the

       Requirements of Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle Code®".    These

       tests verify that a capacitive discharge ignition system does not

       adversely effect the exhaust emfssions of a "tuned" engine.

IV.    Conclusions and Recommendations
       It is the staff‘s opinion that Aero Design Products Corporation "Perma—

       Tune" ignition system will not adversely effect motor vehicle exhaust


"Perma—Tune"                                          March 16, 1973



      emissions when evaluated with respect to the exhaust emissions

      obtained with a conventional ignition system of a "tuned" engine.

      This device may also have a beneficial effect in the control of

      exhaust emissions in that it maintains the "tuned" condition of the

      engine for a longer peribd of time.   Therefore, the "Perma—Tune" cap—

      acitive discharge ignition system should be exempt from the

      prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Motor Vehicle Code.
