                                    SUMMARY



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

California 91405, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources

Board‘s Excutive Order (E.0.) No. D—140—1 which exempted five (5) Spearco

turbo kits (including optional intercoolers)} from the prohibitions in Vehicle

Code Section 27156 for installation on 1982 through 1984 Toyota Supra and

Cressida vehicles.   The applicant requested an update of the above E.0. to

include fuel—injected 1985 model—year Toyotas.

      Based on test data from previous comparative exhaust emissions tests

performed on a 1984 Toyota Supra and the fact that the engine and emission

control systems of 1985 fuel—injected Toyota Supras and Cressidas are

carryovers (identical) from the 1984 model—year, the staff concludes that the
Spearco‘s turbocharger kits ({with and without the optional intercooler) will

not adversely affect exhaust emission from 1985 and older model—year Toyota

Supras and Cressidas equipped with 168 CID fuel—injected six—cylinder engines.

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

an update exemption for their add—on turbocharger kits to include 1985 Toyota

Supras and Cressidas and that Executive Order D—140—4 be issued.

EVALUATION OF SPEARCO PERFORMANCE PRODUCTS, INC.‘S ADD—ON TURBOCHARGER KIT
WITH AN OPTIONAL INTERCOOLER FOR 2.8 LITER TOYOTA SUPRA AND CRESSIDA VEHICLES
FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROKIBITIONS IN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE
WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE.

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

California 91405, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources

Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—140—1 which exempted five (5) Spearco

turbo kits {including optional intercoolers) from the prohibitions in Vehicle

Code Section 27156 for 1982 through 1984 Toyota Supra and Cressida vehicles.

The applicant requested an update of the above E.0. to include 1985 model—year

Toyotas.   The list of kits and their applications is shown below:



           Turbo Kit No.                   Vehicle Models

              9898                         1982 Supra
              9899                         1983 Supra

              9900                         1983 Cressida

              9909 {intercooled)           1982—1984 Supra

              9910 (intercooled)           1983—1984 Cressida

             9909—A {intercooled)          1985 Supra and Cressida



II.   CONCLUSION

      Based on test data from previous comparative exhaust emission tests

performed on a 1984 Toyota Supra and the fact that the engines and emission

control systems of the 1985 fuel—injected Toyota Supras and Cressidas are

carryovers (identical) from the 1984 model—year, 168 CID, Toyotas, the

staff concludes that Spearco‘s turbocharger kits (with and without the


optional intercooler) will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from 1985

and older model—year Toyota Supras and Cressidas equipped with fuel—injected

168 CID six—cylinder engines.

III.   RECOMMENDATIONS

       The staff recommends that Spearco be granted an update exemption for

their add—on turbocharger kits to include 1985 Toyota Supras and Cressidas and

that Executive Order D—140—4 be issued.

IV.    TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

       A detailed description of Spearco‘s turbocharger kit and its operation

can be found in the previous ARB staff report dated February 6, 1984.

V.     DISCUSSIDN

       Spearco Performance Products, Inc.‘s turbocharger kits applicable for

1982 Toyota Supra and 1983—1984 Toyota Supra and Cressida having a 168 CID,

fuel—injected engine were granted an exemption (E.0. No. D—140—1) on

February 6, 1984.   The exemption was granted on the basis that the

effectiveness of the vehicle‘s pollution control system was not reduced.

Evaluation consisted of comparative (baseline versus turbocharged/not

intercooled and baseline versus turbocharged/intercooled) CVS—75 and HFE tests

at normal certification dynamometer road loading.

       The applicant requested that the exemption be updated to include 1985

Toyota Supra and Cressida with a fuel—injected, six—cylinder, 168 CID engine

for their turbocharger kit No. 9909—A.


     _In response to the request, the staff compared the engine design of 1984

to 1985 model—year Toyota Supra and Cressida vehicles with a 168 CID engine

and found that the engines and emission control systems on these 1985

model—year vehicles are carryovers from 1984 models.    The 1985 models will

have the same degree of performance/emissions impact as the previous

modelfyear vehicles.   Since the data from a 1984 Toyota Supra test vehicle

showed that the vehicle‘s emissions were not adversely affected when the

turbocharger kit (with and without the intercooler) was installed, the Spearco

kit will have no adverse effect on the 1985 vehicles.    No additional testing

was required or performed for updating the exemption.
