                                  SUMMARY


       Spearco Performance Products, Inc. has requested an exemption from

the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for their turbocharger
intercooler kit number 99684, intended for installation on 1984 Maserati

Bi—Turbo vehicles powered by a 2.5 lTiter engine.

       Based on:   (1)} previous comparative tests evaluating the exhaust
emission effects of one of Spearco‘s intercooler kit; and (2) the staff‘s

engineering evaluation of the intercooler‘s impact on exhaust emissions

from vehicles, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s turbocharger

intercooler kit number 99684 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions

from vehicles for which exemption is requested.

       The staff recommends that Spearco Performance Products, Inc. be

granted an exemption for their turbocharger intercooler kit number 99684

as requested and that Executive Order D—140—2 be issued.

Exemption from the Prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 in
égg:rdance with Section 2222, Title 13, of the California Administrative


1.     INTRODUCTION

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

Nuys, California 91405, has requested an exemption from the prohibitions

in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for their turbocharger intercooler kit

number 99684.      The kit is intended for installation on 1984 Maserati

Bi—Turbo vehicles powered by a 2.5 Titer engine.

II.    CONCLUSION

       Based on:     (1) previous comparative (turbocharged vehicle without

and with an air/liquid intercooler kit) tests evaluating the exhaust

emission effects of one of Spearco‘s intercooler kit; and (2) the staff‘s

engineering evaluation of the intercooler‘s impact on exhaust emissions

from vehicles, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s turbocharger

intercooler kit number 99684 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions

from vehicles for which exemption is requested.
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—2 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

number 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 fecommends a minimum mixture

of 10% ethylene glycol or anti—freeze and 90% water.

V.    DISCUSSION

      Spearco Performance Products, Inc. is making available a

turbocharger intercooler kit for the 1984 Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles
powered by a 2.5 lTiter engine.    The kit is similar in design and

principle as their previously exempted intercooler kit for 1982 through

1984 Toyota 2.8 lTiter vehicles exempted under Executive Order No. D—140—1.
      Spearco has previously performed comparative {vehicle turbocharged
without and with an air/liquid intercooler kit) tests evaluating the

exhaust emissions effects that one of their intercooler kits would have

on a 1984 Toyota 2.8 liter Supra.     Upon demonstrating no adverse effect

on the vehicle‘s exhaust emissions, the intercooler kit was exempted.

      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.
