                                       summary
      Spearéo Peformance Products, Inc. has requested an update to the

exemption from the prohibitions of California Vehicle Code Section 27156, for

their air—to—air intercooler system for use on the following OEM turbocharged

vehicles:

            1.   1984—1986 3.0L Nissan 3007%;

            2.   1984—1986 1.8L Niss#n 2008X ;

            3.   1984—1986 2.2L Chrysler Laser/Dodge Daytona;

            4.   1984—1985 2.6L Mitsubishi Plymouth and Dodge Conquest;

            5.   1983—1985 2.6L Mitsubishi Starion;

            6.   1983—1986 2.3L Ford Thunderbird/Mustang; and

            7.        1986 2.2L Omni GLH/Shelby Charger.

    Executive Order (E.0.) D—140—6 was granted to Spearco Performance

Products, Inc. on November 20, 1984 on the basis that their add—on air—to—air

intercooler system did not have an adverse effect on exhaust emissions when

the system is installed on the requested 1983—1985 OEM turbocharged vehicles.

Since 1986 model—year vehicles for which exemption update has been requested

are carry—overs from the 1985 models and 1986 2.2L Omni GLH/Shelby Charger

uses the same engine as 2.2L Chrysler Laser/Dodge Daytona with the same

eļ¬ission control components, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s air—to—air

intercooler system will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from requested

vehicles.

    The staff recommends that Spearco Performance Products, Inc. be granted an

exemption for their air—to—air intercooler system to be used on the requested

vehicles and that Executive Order D—140—12 be issued.

                    Accordance with Section 2222, Title 13, of the California Administrative Code.

                    1.    INTRODUCTION

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

                    California 91405, has requested an update to the exemption from the

                    prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156, for their air—to—air intercooler

                    system for use on the following OEM turbocharged vehicles:

                               1.      1984—1986 3.0L Nissan 3007Z%;

                               7.           1986 2.2L Omni GLH/Shelby Charger.

                    II.   CONCLUSIONS
                          Executive Order (E.0.) D—140—6 was granted to Spearco Performance
                   Products, Inc. on November 20, 1984 on the basis that their add—on air—to—air

                    intercooler system did not have an adverse effect on the exhaust emisssions

                   when this system is installed on the requested 1983—1985 OEM turbocharged

                   vehicles,        Since 1986 model—year vehicles for which exemption update has been

                   reduested are carry—overs from the 1985 models and 1986 2.2L Omni GLH/Shelby

                   Charger uses the same engine as 2.2 Chrysler Laser/Dodge Daytona with the same

                   emission control compnents, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s air—to—air

                   intercooler system will not adversely affect exhaust emissions requested

                   vehicles.

 III.   RECOMMENDATIONS

        The staff recommends that Spearco Performance Products, Inc. be granted

 an exemption for their air—to—air intercooler system to be used on the

 requested vehicles and that Executive Order D—140—12 be issued.
 IV.    INTERCOOLER SYSTEM DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

        The purpose of the intercooler is to reduce the temperature of the

 intake air/fuel charge going intovthe turbocharged engine.                         This reduction in

 the intake charge temperature allows a higher charge density {more amount of

 air per minute flowing through the engine) which means more fuel into the

 engine at a given intake manifold vacuum/pressure.

        The major components of the Spearco air—to—air intercooler system are a

 heat exchanger and inter—connecting mandrel bent tubes.                         They are packaged

 with installation hardware and instructions and sold as a kit.                         The system is

 designed using different design concepts, including tubing lengths, diameter

‘ and bends, to suit the requirements of the individual vehicle.

        The air—to—air heat exchanger is located in such a way that the heated

 charge air flow goes through one section and ambient air flows through the

 other section, cooling the heated, compressed charge air.                        The cooled

 compressed air is then passed out of the heat exchanger to the intake

 manifold.   The location for the installation of the heat exchanger varies with

 eéch vehicle model.
 ¥.     DISCUSSION
        Spearco‘s air—to—air intercooler system was exempted from the

 prohibitions of California Vehicle Code Section 27156 by the Executive Order

 (E.0.) D—140—6 dated November 20, 1984 on the basis that the use of the

 intercooler would not adversely affect the vehicle‘s emissions or degrade the


                                                            ETVTopretrinntinetoonootmsrmmintanste




vehicle‘s driveability.   The applicant requested an update to this exemption

to include 1986 OEM turbocharged vehicles as listed in the introduction of

this report.

      According to the performance analysis previously submitted to the ARB,

the staff have found that the thermal efficiency of the intercooler system

ranges between 40% and 84% and that the reduction in the combustion

temperature, resulted from the cooler intake charge due to the installation of

the intercooler system, will reduce the formation of NOx gases in the

combustion chamber and, therefore, through the exhaust system.

      Since the engine design of the 1986 requested vehicles are carrfed over

from 1985 model—year vehicles and 1986 Omni GLH/Shelby Charger uses the same

engine as 2.2 Chrysler Laser/Dodge Daytona with the same emission control

components, the staff is of the opinion that air to air intercooler system

will not have an adverse effect on the exhaust emissions when installed on the
vehicles for which exemption has been requested.
