                Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc., of 1310 Johnson Drive, City of Industry,

          California 91745, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources

          Board‘s Executive Order No. D—114—1.     The applicant requested that their

          add—on turbocharger kit No. 301 E10 be also exempted from the prohibitions in

          Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the 1984 model—year vehicles up to 6000 Tbs.

_—________cight«cylindercarburetedengineandautomatictransmission,.___________________ _
                Based on the fact that the closed—loop carbureted engines used in the

          1984 model—year GM vehicles up to 6000 Tbs. GVW are carryovers (identical

          engine designs and calibrations) from the 1983 model—year, the staff concludes

          that the applicant‘s turbocharger kit will not adversely affect exhaust
   ‘      emissions from 1984 GM vehicles up to 6000 Tbs. GVW powered by a GM 305 CID

          eight—cylinder carbureted engine and automatic transmission.     However, since

          the Air Resources Board did not certify any GM vehicles up to 6000 Ibs. GV

          powered by a 350 CID engine in 1984, the staff is unable to include the 1984

          GM 350 CID vehicles upto 6000 Tbs. GVW in the update exemption.
                The staff recommends that Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc. be granted
          their update request for vehicles up to 6000 Tbs. GVW powered by é GM 305 CID

EVALUATION OF THE MARTIN TURBO ENGINEERING, INC.‘S TURBOCHARGER KIT NO. 301
E10 FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN VEKHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN
ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE.


I.     INTRODUCTION
       Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc., of 1310 Johnson Drive, City of Industry,

California 91745, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources

Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.} No. D—114—1.     The applicant requested that
their add—on turbocharger kit No. 301 E1O be also exempted from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code {VC) Section 27156 for the 1984 model—year

vehicles powered by a General Motors (GM) 305 or 350 CID eight—cylinder
carbureted engine and automatic transmission.

II.    CONCLUSION
       Baséd on the fact that the closed—loop carbureted engines used in the

1984 model—year GM 305 CID vehicles up to 6000 1lbs. GVW are carryovers

{identical engine designs}) from the 1983 model—year, the staff concludes that
the turbocharger kit will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from 1984

vehicles powered by a GM 305 CID eight—cylinder carbureted engine and

automatic transmission.   However, since the Air Resources Board did not

certify any GM vehicles up to 6000 Tbs. GVW powered by a 350 CID engine in
1984, the staff is unable to include the 1984 GM 350 CID passenger cars in the

update exemption.

III.   RECOMMENDATIONS
       The staff recommends that Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc. be granted

their update request for gasoline engine powered vehicles up to 6000 Ibs. GVW

powered by a GM 305 CID eight—cylinder carbureted engine and automatic

transmission in the exemption of their add—on turbocharger kit No. 301 E10.

The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—114—2 be issued.


    IV.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION
          The purpose of turbocharging is to increase the volumetric efficiency of

    an engine by forcing more air into an engine than it would take in under

    naturally aspirated conditions.

          The major components of the turbocharger kit are a RaJay turbocharger

    model No. 301 E10 with an A/R ratio of 1.0, a replacement Martin inlet

    manifold lid and exhaust manifold (right cylinder bank)}, a crossover pipe,

    replacement secondary metering rods, and a water injedtion unit.     The



    as a kit.
          The crossover pipe routes exhaust from the left cylinder bank to join

    the right cylinder bank exhaust at the Martin exhaust manifold.     The turbine

.   inlet of the turbocharger mounts directly to the exhaust manifold.     The

    turbine and the compressor are Tinked together by a solid shaft and driven by

    exhaust gases.    Intake air/fuel mixture is compressed by the compressor and

    returned to the intake manifold lid.
          Maximum positive manifold pressure (boost) is limited to 5 psi by a

    pressure control valve positioned in the intake manifold 1lid.    No wastegate or

    other active Timiting device is used.

          Lubrication of the turbocharger is provided by a line from the oil1

    pressure sending unit mounted on the engine block to the turbocharger bearing

    housing.    Oil from the turbocharger is returned to the oil drain adapter

    positioned between the fuel pump and engine block.


       The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) secondary metering rods (ID

CH) in the carburetor are replaced by Martin‘s No. 937050 metering rods (ID

CJ).   The metering rods are raised by 0.005 of an inch from the OEM position.
The applicant claims that the replacement metering rods increases secondary

«fuel delivery for proper and efficient operation of the kit.

       Water injection is employed to control NOx emissions and to suppress
detonation.   Water is drawn from a small plastic reservoir by a pump and

 injected into the top of the carburetor through a nozzle.   Flow is restricted
by a 0.015 inch orifice ahead of the nozzle.   The pump is activated when
manifold vacuum is beTow 6 inches Hg.

       No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required nor

permitted when the turbocharger kit is installed.   All OEM emissions controls

afe left intact.

V.     DISCUSSION

       Martin Turbo Engineering, Inc‘s. turbocharger kit No. 301 E10,

applicable to 1983 and older model—year vehicles up to 6000 Tbs. GVW powered

by a GM 305 or 350 CID eight—cylinder carbureted engine and automatic

transmission, was granted an exemption (E.0. No. D—114—1) on May 28, 1983.

The exemption was granted on the basis that the effectiveness of the vehicle‘s

pollution control system was not reduced.   Evaluation consisted of comparative

 {(without and with the kit installed on a test vehicle) chassis dynamometer

CYS—75 and HFE tests at normal certification dynamometer road Toading.


     The applicant is making available kit No. 301 E10 for the 1984 models
powered by a GM 305 or 350 CID engine also.    The applicant requested that the

exemption be updated to include these vehicles.
      In response to the request, the staff reviewed the 1984 model—year |

certification for application submitted by GM.    The staff revealed that:

      1.   no GM vehicles up to 6000 Tbs. GVW powered by a 350 CID engine were

           California—certified in 1984; and

      2.   the closed—l0oop carbureted GM 305 CID engines used in the 1984

           model—year vehicles up to 6000 lbs. GVW are carryovers.

      The staff is therefore, of the opinion that the 1984 GM 305 CID vehicles

up to 6000 lbs. GVW will have the same degree of performance/emissions impact

as in the 1983 model—year GM vehicles up to 6000 Tbs. GVW models which have

been granted exemption under Executive Order D—114—1.    No additional testing
was required or performed for updating the passenger car exemption.
