   GM SERVICE PARTS OPERATION — ECOTEC SUPERCHARGER UPGRADE KIT — D—126—10


                               EVALUATION SUMMARY

Manufacturer Name: General Motors Service Parts Operation

Name of Device: ECOTEC Supercharger Upgrade Kit, Stage 1 and Stage 2

Background:
      General Motors Service Parts Operation has applied for an exemption from the
prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code (VC) for their ECOTEC
Supercharger Upgrade Kit, Stage 1 and Stage 2, designed for 2004 through 2006 model
year Chevrolet Cobalt and Saturn ION/Redline vehicles equipped with a supercharged
2.0L engine.

Recommendation:
       Grant exemption to General Motors Service Parts Operation as requested and
issue Executive Order D—126—10.

Device Description:
       The ECOTEC Supercharger Upgrade Kit was designed to be installed on 2004
through 2006 model year Chevrolet Cobalt and Saturn ION/Redline vehicles equipped
with a supercharged 2.0L engine. The intent of installing the ECOTEC Supercharger
Upgrade Kitis to increase the power output from the engine. The power increase is due
to the increase in air induction, accompanied by fuel enrichment through use of higher
flow fuel injfectors and a new fuel calibration.
      The ECOTEC Supercharger Kit comes in two versions, Stage 1 and Stage 2.
Stage 1 includes the following main parts: A set of 5.3 grams/second fuel injectors to
replace the stock 4.35 grams/second injectors and a new fuel calibration that is
downloaded to the stock ECU by a General Motors dealer. The new fuel calibration has
no user adjustments. The ECOTEC Supercharger Upgrade Kit, Stage 2, includes alil
components of Stage 1, a 77.9 mm diameter supercharger pulley and a high flow air
filter cartridge in the stock air box. Maximum boost produced by the Stage 2 kit is 14.5
pounds per square inch. Maximum boost pressure produced by the Stage 1 kit
is same as stock (12.5 pounds per square inch).

Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation;
        A 2005 model year General Motors 2.0L supercharged Saturn lon Redline was
used for the evaluation of the ECOTEC Supercharger Upgrade Kit. The test vehicle
(test group 5GMXVO2.0018) was certified to the passenger car Ultra Low Emission
Vehicle emission standards and was equipped with On—Board Diagnostic (OBD) II
system. Testing consisted of one Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP) and
the Supplemental Federal Test Procedure (USOS and SCO3) test cycles in the modified
configuration (Stage 2 Kit installed) to set all readiness codes and measure emissions.
The ARB did not perform testing to confirm the test results submitted by the applicant.
      Results from emissions testing conducted at Roush Emissions Laboratory, 12249
Levan Road, Livonia, Michigan 48150, are shown below (in grams per mile with
assigned deterioration factors added to CVS—75 FTP results):

                           CVS—75 FTP                        USO6/SCO3
                    NMOG CO     NOx HCHO                  NMHC+NOx     CO
Standards           0.100 3.4   0.14 0.015                  0.14/0.20 8.0/2.7
w/ Device           0.050 0.8   0.06 0.001                  0.07/0.04 1.8/70.3


NMOG and HCHO for the Saturn lon Redline were calculated using the following
conversion factors for the vehicle: NMOG/NMHC=1.04 and HCHO/NMHC= 0.02.
Measured values were NMHC 0.043, CO 0.73, NOx 0.055. 50K assigned additive
deterioration factors used were NMOG 0.0052, CO 0.10, NOx 0.007 and HCHO
0.00051. Vehicle test weight and horse power coefficients were 3375 lbs. and 36.4,
0.4884, 0.01749 respectively.

The emission test results in the modified configuration were below the applicable
certification emission standards. All OBD II system readiness indicators were set and no
diagnostic trouble codes were triggered. Therefore, based on the test results, the staff
concludes that the ECOTEC Supercharger Upgrade Kit (Stage 1 and Stage 2) meets the
criteria for exemption of general criteria parts.
