MSD’s Atomic EFI Receives Distinctive CARB Exemption Status
MSD Performance is excited to announce that the Atomic Fuel Injection System (PN 2900 & 2910) has been granted an Executive Order Number from the California Air Resources Board! This E.O. Number makes the Atomic the only aftermarket EFI system that is legal on 1987 and older GM vehicles in California! The Atomic EFI system received E.O. Number D-722, which permits the system to be installed in place of the factory carburetor on 1987 and older GM passenger cars and trucks originally powered by a V-8 engine. This executive order also means the Atomic EFI system provides “reasonable basis” for satisfying the anti-tampering requirements of the Federal Clean Air Act, thus allowing its use in all other states. This is terrific news for enthusiasts with an ’87 and older GM car or truck as it means they can finally do away with their old carburetor and take advantage of the driveability benefits of a modern, self-learning EFI system by getting quick starts, consistent idle, and smooth power throughout all driving conditions. During thorough testing it was confirmed that the Atomic system did not reduce the effectiveness of the applicable vehicle pollution-control systems and therefore was granted an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code for 1987 and older General Motors passenger cars and pickups originally equipped with a V-8 engine and carburetor. MSD will supply an information label with the E.O. number and details that must be affixed on the vehicle for inspection purposes. The MSD Atomic EFI system is designed for the do-it-yourself enthusiast and provides the easiest installation and initial setup for any EFI upgrade.
