Abstract
The exhaust emission characteristics of a Ford Thunderbird equipped with electronic fuel injection were determined over a standard series of tests. The vehicle installation made by the Bendix Corporation consisted of a complete conversion to fuel injection. The vehicle used a standard Ford 429 cubic inch V-8 engine. The following tests were performed on this vehicle: (1) standard 1970 Federal test procedure for exhaust emission (FTP); (2) closed, constant volume sampling technique using 9 repeats of the Federal emissions test cycle (9 CVS); (3) closed, constant volume sampling technique using the LA4-S3 driving schedule proposed for 1972 and later testing (LA4); (4) acceleration tests consisting of wide open throttle accelerations (WOT) from 0-60 mph, 20-50 mph and 50-80 mph. Results indicate that this vehicle conversion resulted in a vehicle that would not meet the present or proposed emission standards. In addition the performance and driveability were adversely affected.
