                                    SUMMARY



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

California 91745, has requested an update of its existing Air Resources

Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—114—2.   The company‘s turbocharger kit

No. 301 E10, was exempted from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code {¥.C.) Section
27156 for use on the following limited General Motors (GM) Corporation‘s
passenger cars equipped with automatic transmissions:

      1.   1984 and older model—year passenger cars with a 305 CID carbureted
           engine, and

      2.   1982 and older model—year passenger cars with a 350 CID carbureted
           engine.

      The company is requesting the update of the existing Executive Order for

the same list of limited vehicles but equipped with manual transmissions.

      Comparative data from previous tests of the Martin turbocharger kit No.

301 E10 when installed on the above specified GM‘s vehicles equipped with

automatic transmissions show emissions levels that were at or below the

baseline vehicle levels.   A review of GM‘s certification applications revealed

that the engine(s) of the specified model—year vehicle(s), whether equipped

with automatic or manual transmission, is in the same engine family.   The

staff, therefore, concludes that the Martin Turbo Engineering turbocharger kit

No. 301 E10 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions when installed on the

same engine family vehicles equipped with manual transmissions.

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

updated Y.C. Section 27156 exemption as requested and that Executive Order No.

D—114—3 be issued.

EVALUATION OF THE MARTIN TURBO ENGINEERING, INC.‘S TURBOCHARGER KIT NO. 301
E10 FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN VEHICLE 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 of its existing Air Resources

Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—114—2.     The company‘s turbocharger kit

No. 301 E10, was exempted from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code (V¥.C.) Section

27156 for use on the following limited General Motors (GM) Corporation‘s
passenger cars equipped with automatic transmissions:

       1.     1984 and older model—year passenger cars with a 305 CID carbureted
              engine, and

       2.     1982 and older mdde1-year passenger cars with a 350 CID carbureted
              engine.

       The company is requesting the update of the existing Executive Order for

the same list of limited vehicles but equipped with manual transmissions.

II.    CONCLUSION

       Comparative data from previous tests of the Martin turbocharger kit No.

310 E10 when installed on the specified GM‘s vehicles equipped with automatic

transmissions show emissions levels that were at or below the baseline vehicle

levels.     A review of GM‘s certification applications revealed that the

engine(s) of the specified model—year vehicle(s), whether equipped with

automatic or manual transmission, is in the same engine family.     The staff,

therefore, concludes that the Martin Turbo Engineering turbocharger kit No.

301 E10 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions when installed on the same

engine family vehicles equipped with manual transmissions.

III.      RECOMMENDATIONS

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

updated V.C. Section 27156 exemption as requested and that Executive Order No.

D—114—3 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 would be inspired under

naturally aspirated conditions.

        The major components of the Martin turbocharger kit No. 310 E10 are a

RaJay model No. 301 E10 turbocharger 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 injection

unit.    The components are packaged with installation hardware and instructions

and sold as a kit.

        The crossover pipe routes exhaust gases from the left cylinder bank to

the right cylinder bank where all of the exhaust gases flow into the Martin

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

the exhaust manifold.    The turbine and the compressor are linked together by a

solid shaft and driven by exhaust gases.    The intake air/fuel mixture is

compressed by the compressor and returned to the intake manifold lid.

        The maximum positive manifold pressure (boost) is limited to 5 psi by a

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

other active limiting device is used.

        Lubrication of the turbocharger is provided by a tubing from the oil

pressure sensing 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 the engine block.

        The original equipment manufacturer‘s (OEM) secondary metering rods

(Rochester Identification Code CH) in the carburetor are replaced by Martin‘s

No. 937050 metering rods which are Rochester Identification Code CJ rods.       The


applicant claims that the replacement metering rods will increase 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.    The flow of water

is restricted by a 0.015 inch orifice ahead of the nozzle.     The pump is

activated by a vacuum switch when manifold vacuum is below 6 inches Hg.

      No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required when the

turbocharger kit is installed.   All OEM emissions controls are left intact.

V.    DISCUSSION

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

applicable to 1984 and older model—year GM‘s 305 CID and 1982 and older 350

CID carbureted engine vehicles equipped with automatic transmission was

granted an exemption (E.0. No. D—114—2) from prohibitions of V.C. Section

27156 on April 3, 1984.   The exemption was granted on the basis that the

effectiveness of the vehicle‘s pollution control system was not reduced.

Comparative, baseline configuration versus modified (with the kit installed)

configuration, emission data from chassis dynamometer CYS—75 and HFE tests,

were used for the evaluation.

      The comparative emission test data indicate that the emissions levels of

the modified configuration with the turbocharger kit installed were at or

below the emissions levels of the baseline configuration.

      The applicant is making available kit No. 301 E10 for use on the same

model—year and displacement engines installed in the specified vehicles

equipped with manual transmission.    The applicant requested that the current

E.0. No. D—112—2 be updated to include the same list of limited vehicles but

equipped with manual transmissions.


      In response to the request, the staff reviewed past new vehicle

certification documents submitted by GM.   The review revealed that the noted
engines used in the specified vehicles equipped with manual transmissions are

in the same engine family as those in the specified vehicles equipped with

automatic transmissions.   The staff is, therefore, of the opinion that the

emissions impact of the Martin turbocharger kit No. 310 E10 on the specified

vehicles equipped with manual transmission will be the same as that on

vehicles with the same engines but equipped with automatic transmission.      As a

result, no additional testing was required.
