The vehicle tested in this study was a 1967 Pontiac Tempest station wagon with an overhead cam six cylinder engine. The engine was modified to provide internal exhaust gas recirculation. An air pump and a catalytic reactor were also added for further emission reductions. A special Texaco design ignition system was provided to allow operation at leaner fuel air ratios and to provide more energy for spark propagation. A complete series of hot and cold emission tests were run using these test cycles: (1) 1970 Federal Emission Test Procedure; (2) 1972 Federal Emission Test Procedure; (3) a combination using 9 repeats of the 1970 driving cycle. It was concluded that the vehicle, as tested, did not meet the requirements of 1975 or 1976 emission standards. The results of the hot start tests indicate that better control over the choke and warm up, 1975 emissions could be met. The prospect of this vehicle meeting 1976 standards seem slight without further NO(X) control.
