                                     SUMMARY

         Spearco   Performance   Products,     inc.     (Spearco)     has   requested    an

exemption on their air—~to—air   Intercooler Upgrade System part numbers

07—O102C,    2—173 and 2~174 which are applicable to 1989 Ford Probe Turbo 2.2

Liter and 1988—89 Mazda MX—6 2.2 Liter.

         Spearco was previously granted Executive Order D—140—23 on March 26,

1988 for their air—to—air    Intercooler Kit No. 07—0102 for 1988 Ford            Merkur.

Based   on   engineering   evaluation,   the    staff     concludes     that the Spearco

Intercooler Upgrade System will not adversely affect exhaust emissions                  from

the applicable vehicles.

         The staff recommends that Spearco be granted the exemption and                 that

Executive Order D—140—24 be issued.

L.         1NTRODUCT I ON

           Spearco            Performance         Products,        Inc.   (Spearco)            ,    of 7541 Woodman

Place, Van Nuys, California                      91405,     has    applied     for       exemption              on        their

Intercooler           Upgrade          System for 1989 Ford Probe Turbo 2.2 Liter and 1988—89

Mazda MX—6 2.2               Liter.        The    Spearco        intercooler        replaces             factory          (OEM)

intercooler           and>        offers     improvement     in charge cooling at higher speeds and

slightly    less charge air pressure.

e          CONCLUS

           E.0. D—140—23 was previously granted to Spearco on                                       the        basis       that

the     Rapido        Group air—to—air            intercooler kit did not have an adverse effect

on the exhaust emissions when the kit                        is Installed on the 1985—87 2.3                              liter

Ford     Merkur        vehlcles            with OEM turbocharger.            The previous intercooler and

the new Intercooler Upgrade System                         are     similar     in      design            and     function.

Based     on enginsering evaluation of the device, the staff concludes that the

Spearco    Intercooler Upgrade System part numbers O7—O0102C,                                      2—173        and       2—174

will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the applicable vehicles.

P11 .             M           AT ION

           The        staff         recommends      that     Spearco      be   granted              an     exemption as

requested and the Executive Order D—140—24 be issued.

IV.        LNTER             LE      PGRADE SYSTEM D             RIPTION AND        OPERAT I

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

intake     air/fuel!              charge going     into the 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 Upgrade

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 kit      is     designed       using         different     design      concepts,     including          tubing

lengths,          diameter       and      bends,     to    sulit 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    amblent        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 each vehicle mode!.

v.           D1SCUSSION

             Spearco‘s alr—to—air                intercooler Upgrade System will               not        adversely

affect       the     vehicle‘s         emissions or degrade the vehicle‘s driveability.                          An

intercooler being a device that reduces the temperature of charge air before

it    goes        into     the combustion chamber will facilitate better combustion and

less pollutants.               Turbo chargers increase the temperature                   and     pressure        of

charge       Inlet        air and the       intercooler reduces the temperature and hence the

pressure before the charge enters the combustion chamber.

             Based        on    engineering         evaluation,         the staff   is of the opinion that

the Spearco air—to—air                 intercooler Upgrade System will not have                      an     adverse

effect on the exhaust emissions from applicable vehicles.
