                                     SUMMARY




          Spearco Performance Products,   Inc.   (Spearco)   has requested an update

to the existing Air Resources Board Executive Order          (E.0.) D—140—23.   The

request    is to include 1989 model—year Ford Mercur 2.3       liter OEM turbocharged

vehicles    in the exemption for the Rapido Group air—to—air       Intercooler Kit

Number O7—0102.

          E.0. D—140—23 was granted tovSpearco on March 26,       1988, on the basis

that   their air—to—air   Intercooler Kit has no adverse effect on the vehicies‘

exhaust emissions.     Since the 1989 model—year 2.3 liter Ford Mercur vehicles

are carry—overs from 1988 models,    the staff concludes that Spearco‘s Rapido

Group air—to—air    Intercooler Kit Number 07—0102 will not adversely affect

exhaust emissions from the 1989 model—year vehicles.

          The staff recommends that Spearco be granted their request and that

E.0. D—140—25 be    issued.

IV.      TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

         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 fue!                     into the

engine at a given          Iintake manifold vacuum/pressure.

         The major components of the Spearco Rapido Group air—to—air

Intercooler Kit Number 07—0102 are a heat exchanger and                  inter—connecting

mandre! bent tubes.          They are packaéed 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 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 each vehicle model!.

V.        I         1LON

         Spearco‘s Rapido Group air—to—air Intercooler Kit Number 07—0102 is

exempt from the prohibitions of California Vehicle Code Section 27156 by

E.0. D—140—23 on the basis that the use of the                  Intercooler would not

adversely affect the vehicles‘ emissions or degrade the vehicles‘

driveability.        The applicant requested an update of the exemption to               include


the 1989 model—year 2.3 liter Ford Merkur vehicies with OEM turbochargers.

Since the 1989 model—year 2.3   liter Ford Mercur vehicles are carry—overs

from the 1988 models, the staff concliudes that the Rapido Group air—to—air

intercooler Kit Number 07—0102 will   have no adverse effect on exhaust

emissions from the 1989 model—year vehicles.
