                                    SUMMARY



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

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

prohibitions of California Vehicle Code Section 27156, for their turbocharger

intercooler kit No. 99684 for installation on 1984—1986 Maserati Bi—Turbo

vehicles powered by a 2.5 liter engine.

       Executive Order D—140—7 was granted to Spearco Performance Products,

Inc. on the basis that their turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 did not

have an adverse effect on the vehicles‘ exhaust emissions.   Since 1986

model—year Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles are carry—overs from 1985 models, the

staff concludes that Spearco‘s intercooler kit No. 99684 will not adversely

affect exhaust emissions from the requested vehicles.

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

an exemption for their turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 as requested and

that Executive Order D—140—13 be issued.

Evaluation of Spearco Performance Products, Inc.‘s Turbocharger Intercooler
Kit Number 99684 for 1984—1986 Maserati Bi—Turbo Vehicles for Exemption from
the Prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 in Accordance with Section

I.     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, Executive Order (E.0.) D—140—7,

for their turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 for installation on 1984—1986

Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles powered by a 2.5 liter engine.

11.    CONCLUSION

       Executive Order D—140—7 was granted to Spearco Performance Products,

Inc. on November 29, 1984 on the basis that their turbocharger intercooler kit

No. 99684 did not have an adverse effect on the vehicles‘ exhaust emissions.

Since 1986 model—year Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles are carry—overs from 1985

models, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s intercooler kit No. 99684 will not

adversely affect exhaust emissions from the requested vehicles.

III.   RECOMMENDATIONS

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

an exemption for their turbocharger intercooler kit as requested and that

Executive Order D—140—13 be issued.

IV.    INTERCOOLER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

       The purpose of intercooling a turbocharger is to reduce the temperature

of the intake air/fuel charge going into the engine.     This reduction in intake

charge temperature will allow a higher charge density (more mass of air per

minute to flow through the engine) which means more fuel into the engine at a

given intake manifold vacuum/pressure.


       The major components of the Spearco turbocharger intercooler kit No.

99684 are two intercooler assemblies, a heat exchanger, a circulating pump,

and an electronic module.     They are packaged with installation hardware and

instructions and sold as a kit.

       Compressed intake charge passes through the intercooler assemblies.

Circulating coolant, pumped by the circulating pump when boost pressure

exceeds 4 psi, will extract heat (by conduction) from the intake charge to

reduce temperatures over 100°F.     The circulating coolant is cooled by passing

through the heat exchanger.     In order to prevent the coolant from freezing in

cold areas, Spearco recommends a minimum mixture of 10% ethylene glycol or

anti—freeze and 90% water.

V¥.    DISCUSSION

       Spearco Performance Products, Inc. was exempted by the E.0. D—140—7 for

a turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 for the installation on 1984—1985

Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles powered by a 2.5 liter engine.     The applicant

requested an update to this exemption to include 1986 model—year Maserati

Bi—Turbo vehicles.

       The applicant has previously demonstrated the performance of their

system without an adverse effect on the vehicle‘s exhaust emission.

       In addition, it is the staff‘s opinion that the combustion temperature

will be reduced as a result of cooler intake charge with the use of the

turbocharger intercooler kit.     This reduction in combustion temperature will

reduce the formation of NOx gases in the combustion chamber, resulting in less

NOx emissions expelled through the exhaust system.


       Since the engine design of the 1986 Masarati Bi—Turbo vehicles are

carried over from 1985 models, the staff is of the opinion that Spearco‘s

turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 will not adversely affect the exhaust

emissions on the requested vehicles.   No additional testing was required or

performed to update this exemption.
