Abstract
An evaluation of an ignition control system was conducted. The manufacturer describes Magna-Flash as ignition control device designed to improve the performance of any engine using the battery, coil and distributor system. A 1971 Chevrolet Vega was selected to be used in the evaluation. Four replications of baseline and device equipped tests were performed according to the three-bag constant volume sampling technique as prescribed for certification of 1975 model year vehicles. Bag samples were analyzed for hydrocarbons, carbon monoxide, carbon dioxide and oxides of nitrogen. The LA4-S4 driving schedule was employed. It was concluded that the Magna-Flash demonstrated no beneficial or adverse effect on the exhaust emissions of the Vega when tested by the 1975 Federal Test Procedure.
