                                       SUMMARY



      Spearco Performance Products, Inc. has requested an update to the

existing Air Resources Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.) No. D~—140—9 which

exempted Spearco‘s intercooled turbocharger kit from the prohibitions in

California Vehicle Code Section 27156.     The update request is to include 1986

model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 6.9 liter International

Harvester heavy—duty diese?l engine.
      Spearco has previously submitted data from'comparative (stack baseline

versus turbocharged) emission tests conducted on a 1984 Ford F—350XL

heavy—~duty diesel truck.

      Based on the results from comparative exhaust emission tests previously

performed by Spearco, and that the 1986 vehicles for which exemption update

has been requested are carry—overs from the 1985 models which, in turn, are

carry—overs from the 1984 models, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s

intercooled turbocharger kit will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from

vehicles for which exemption has been requested.

      The staff recommends that Spearco be granted an exemption update for

their add—on intercooled turbocharger kit for installation on 1983 through

1886 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 6.9 liter

International Harvester heavy—duty diesel engine.    The staff also recommends

that Executive Order D~140—10 be issued.

       TURBOCHARGER KIT FOR INSTALLATION IN FORD MOTOR COMPANY VEHICLES POWERED
            BY A 6.9 LITER INTERNATIONAL HARVESTER HEAVY—DUTY DIESEL ENGINE

1.        INTRODUCTION

          Spearco Performance Products, Inc., of 7541 Woodman Place, Van Nuys,

California 91405, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources Board‘s

Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—140—9 which exempted Spearco‘s intercooled

turbocharger kit from the prohibitions in California Vehicle Code Section

27156.     The update request is to include 1986 model—year Ford Motor Company

vehicles powered by a 6.9 liter International Harvester heavy—duty diesel

engine.

         Spearco has previously submitted data from comparative {stock baseline

versus turbocharged) emission tests conducted on a 1984 Ford F—350XL

heavy—duty diesel truck at FCI International Testing Laboratory in Santa Ana,

California.

I1I.      CONCLUSION

         Based on the results from comparative exhaust emission tests previously

performed by Spearco at an independent laboratory on a 1984 Ford F—350X%L

truck, and that the 1986 vehicles for which exemption update has been

requested are carry—overs from the 1985 models which, in turn, are carry—overs

from the 1984 models, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s intercooled

turbocharger kit will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for

which exemption has been requested.

III.     RECOMMENDATIONS

         The staff recommends that Spearco be granted an exemption update for

their add—on intercooled turbocharger kit for installation on 1983 through

1986 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 6.9 liter

International Harvester heavy—duty diesel engine.     The staff also recommends

that Executive Order D—140—10 be issued.


IV.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION

      The purpose of turbocharging an engine is to increase the volumetric

efficiency of an engine by forcing more air into the engine than it would take

in under non—turbocharged OEM conditions.     An intercooler manifold is added to

reduce the temperature of the compressed intake air going into the engine.

      The major components of the Spearco intercooled turbocharger kit are a

1.0 A/R ratio Rajay/Rotomaster turbocharger, an exhaust manifold to

turbocharger adaptor, an intercooler manifold, and an intake manifold bonnet.

The components are packaged with installation hardware and instructions and

sold as a kit.

      The OEM exhaust manifold (left bank) is replaced by the Spearco exhaust

manifold to turbocharger adaptor.     The turbine inlet mounts directly to the

replacement exhaust manifold.     Intake air is routed from the air cleaner

assembly to the compressor.     Compressed air is then piped through the

intercooler manifold into the engine.

      For optimum performance of the turbocharger kit, the fuel pump is

recalibrated for increased fuel delivery,     Spearco recommends that the fuel

delivery rate be increased by 12%.    This can be accomplished by rotating the

adjusting screw 150°.

      Maximum positive manifold pressure (boost) is limited to 10 psig by the

size of {and the speed of exhaust flow through ) the turbine housing.      No

wastegate or other active boost limiting device is used.

      Lubrication and cooling of the turbocharger is provided by oil hosed

from the oil pressure sending unit.     Oil from the turbocharger is returned to

the ol pan.

      All OEM emission controls are left intact.


V.    TURBOCHARGER KIT_EVALUATION

      Evaluation of the Spearco add—on intercooled turbocharger kit consisted

of comparative (without and with the kit installed on the test vehicle)

exhaust emission test previously performed on a 1984 Ford F~350XL.          The

exhaust emission tests were performed according to the adopted "Criteria for

Evaluation of Add—On Parts and Modified Parts; Criteria for Testing

Aftermarket Turbochargers".

      A summary of the data from comparative tests is shown in Table 1.

VI.    DISCUSSION

      The data in Table 1 indicates that exhaust emissions are lower with the

turbocharger kit than without the kit, except a slight increase in oxides of

nitrogen (NOx) emissions during idie.       In general, the data demonstrates

compliance with the requirements for the exemption.

      Due to limited resources, ARB did not perform confirmatory tests.
