On the basis of locally obtained test results, Tsurumi Trading Company, Ltd. of Japan, requested emission tests on a device they had developed. Basically the Tsurumi system provides a method for preheating the air-fuel mixture prior to combustion. A new manifold was designed which involved enclosing the intake manifold in the exhaust manifold forming a heat exchanger arrangement. Additional air is supplied to the intake manifold through the use of an air valve installation below the carburetor. The test vehicle was a Nissan Cedric with a six cylinder engine and manual transmission. For these tests the vehicle choke was disconnected. Three different fuels were used for these tests. The test program consisted of a series of 1975 Federal Test Procedure emission tests. Conclusions indicate that this modified engine system does not appear to be a likely candidate for future application.
