I.        INTRODUCTION

          Spearco Performance Products, Inc.   (Speérco) of 14664 Titus Street,

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

an exemption for their 375 HP Twin Turbo System for installation on 1986—1992

Ford Mustang equipped with a 5.0L V8 engine.      The staff also recommends that

Executive Order D—140—26 be issued.


IV.       TURBOCHARCER COMPONENTS DESCRIPTION


          Spearco‘s 375 HP Twin Turbo System consists of a Garrett Airesearch T—25

turbocharger with an area ratio (A/R) of 0.64, an intercooler, a high volume

fuel pump, an extra fuel injector, a pair of replacement air cleaners,

replacement exhaust manifolds, and a replacemént engine oil pan.

          The purpose of the Spearco 375 HP Twin Turbo System is to increase the

power output of the engine by compressing the intake charge to above

atmospheric pressure and thereby increase the volumetric efficiency of the

engine.    The increased pressure causes a greater charge density, allowing more

air into the chamber for combustion.     Since the air flow is increased, more

fuel is needed to maintain proper air—fuel ratios.    The Spearco 375 HP Twin

Turbo System includes a high volume fuel pump and an additional fuel injector

to provide the fuel required.     The fuel injector is mounted internal to the

throttle body duct, and is controlled by a stand alone E.C.U.      The E.C.U.

receives signals from the mass air flow sensor (MAF), the manifold air pressure

sensor (MAP) which was supplied by Spearco, and the ignition coil.      The

injector is only actuated when the air flow exceeds the stock level at wide

open throttle.     Lubrication of the turbocharger is provided by engine oil.    The

lubricating oil is then routed back ‘to the engine oil pan through ducts

provided in the replacement oil pan.

          The housing for the air flow sensor is replaced,   however the air flow

sensor is retained and installed in the provided housing.      No emission control

components are removed during installation.     However, the timing is changed

from 10 degrees BTDC to 5 degrees BTDC and a one way check valve is

installed between the P.C.V. valve and inlet manifold.


       vV.   DISCUSSION

       Spearco Performance Products, Inc., has requested that the 375 HP Twin

Turbo System components, be exempted for the 1986—1992 Ford Mustang equipped

with a 5.0L V8 engine.      A 1990 Ford Mustang with a 5.0L V8 engine was used

for testing.     Spearco performed testing at ATfiS to be compared against the

vehicle‘s baseline emission levels.

       The results of the exhaust emissions test performed at ATDS are shown in

Table 1.

                                       Table 1

                                 CVsS—75 TEST RESULTS

                                        HC        co         NOx

                                              (grams/mile)

                Baseline                0.144     0.633      0.552

                Turbocharged            0.,.234    1.291     0.502

               Difference               0 .090    0.658      —0.050




       These results show that the modified vehicle emissions do not exceed the

baseline emissions by more than the‘allowable limits of O.1 g/mi HC, 1.0 g/mi

CO and 0.1 g/mi NOx.

       The ARB also tested the vehicle with the 375 HP Twin Turbo System

installed.     Test results showéd comparable emission levels        (see Table 2)   to

the with device test conducted at ATDS.      The emissions levels are also way

below the applicable emission standards.

             Turbocharged            0.256       1.52       0.48

       Spearco submitted all of the required information and fulfilled the

requirements for an exemption.   The test results show that the Spearco Twin

Turbo kit meets the requirements for exemption.
