Tests were conducted on a vehicle with an induction system modified by Mr. Robert Edde. The modifications were made on a 1964 Dodge Dart equipped with the 1970 CID slant six cylinder engine and an automatic transmission. Extensive changes were made in the induction system of the vehicle to lower exhaust emissions. The main feature of the system was a special intake manifold which had been designed to remove liquid fuel from the intake charge. Additional modifications were also made to the carburetor's accelerator pump. A series of three tests were run, using the 1975 Federal Test Procedure. The test data indicate that, this control system greatly improves emissions over uncontrolled vehicles with conventional induction systems, and that, the system would be too complicated and expensive to be considered as a retrofit system for unused cars. It is unlikely that this system, by itself, could be optimized to obtain 1975-1976 emission levels.
