                                  SUMMARY



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

Nuys, California 91405, has requested an update to the exemption from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156, Executive Order (E.0.)

D—140—2, for their turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 for

installation on 1984—1985 Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles powered by a 2.5

liter engine.

       Executive Order D—140—2 was granted to Spearco Performance

Products, Inc. on June 15, 1984,on the basis that their turbocharger

intercooler kit No. 99684 did not have an adverse effect on the vehicies‘

exhaust emissions.   Since 1985 model—year Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles are

carry—overs from 1984 models, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s

intercooler kit No. 99684 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions

from the requested vehicles.

       The staff recommends that Spearco Performance Products, Inc. be

granted an exemption for their turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 as

requested and that Executive Order D—140—7 be issued.

Code.



I.     INTRODUCT ION

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

Nuys, California 91405, has requested an update to the exemption from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156, Executive Order (E.0.)

D—140—2, for their turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 for

installation on 1984—1985 Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles powered by a 2.5

liter engine.

II.    CONCLUSION

       Executive Order D—140—2 was granted to Spearco Performance

Products, Inc. on June 15, 1984, on the basis that their turbocharger

intercocler kit No. 99684 did not have an adverse effect on the vehicles‘

exhaust emissions.     Since 1985 model—year Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles are

carry—overs from 1984 models, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s

intercooler kit No. 99684 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions

from the requested vehicles.

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—7 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

No. 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 recommends a minimum mixture

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

¥.    DISCUSSION

      Spearco Performance Products, Inc. was exempted by the E.0. D—140—2

for a turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 for the installation on 1984

Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles powered by a 2.5 liter engine.   The applicant

requested an update to this exemption to include 1985 model—year Maserati

Bi—Turbo vehicles.

      The applicant has previously demonstrated the performance of their

system without an adverse effect on the vehicle‘s exhaust emission.


      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.

      Since the engine design of the 1985 Maserati Bi—Turbo vehicles are

carried over from 1984 models, the staff is of the opinion that Spearco‘s

turbocharger intercooler kit No. 99684 will not adversely affect the

exhaust emissions on the requested vehicles.   No additional testing was

required or performed to update this exemption.
