They are not Pelicanites. The circumstances were a California resident wanting to bring a 1981 ROW car into the state. The only way to do that was to make it meet CARB standards. They chose EFI and a cat. EFI can inject only on a cylinders closed intake, and also run lambda 1 to make the cat work. All good stuff that does not harm the full throttle performance. Once that is tested and passes, CARB bases the visual inspection list on that setup.

On another note, two people in CA have gotten exemptions for their EFI's by doing the $2500 CARB FTP tests. They met the 1980 standard withe sequential injection, 400 CPI cat, and no air pump.

Is that on the board somewhere? I'm not finding it in my searches. Would love to know more about their experience.
