                                      SUMMARY



      Spearco Performance Products, Inc. has requested an exemption from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for their add—on intercooled

turbocharger kit.   The intercooled turbocharger kit is intended for

installation on 1983 through 1985 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles

powered by a 6.9 liter International Harvester heavy—duty diesel engine.

      Spearco has submitted data from comparative (stock baseline versus

turbocharged) emission tests conducted on a 1984 Ford F—350XL heavy—duty

diesel truck.

      Based on the results from comparative exhaust emission tests performed

by Spearco, the staff concludes that Spearco‘s intercooled turbocharger kit

evaluated will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for which

exemption is requested.

      The staff reeommends that Spearco be granted an exemption for their —

add—on intercooled turbocharger kit for installation on 1983 through 1985

model~year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 6.9 liter International

Harvester heavy—duty diesel engine.    The staff also recommends that Executive

Order D—140—9 be issued.

 I.       INTRODUCTION

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

 California 91405, has requested an exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle

 Code Section 27156 for their add—on intercooled turbocharger kit.      The

 intertcooled turbocharger kit is intended for installation on 1983 through

 1985 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 6.9 liter

 International Harvester heavy—duty diesel engine.

          Spearco has submitted data from comparative (stock baseline versus

 turbocharged) emission tests conducted on a 1984 Ford F—350XL heavy—duty

~ diesel truck at FCI International Testing Laboratory in Santa Ana, California.

 II.     CONCLUSION

         Based on the results from comparative exhaust emission tests performed

 by Spearco at an independent laboratory on a 1984 Ford F—350XL truck, the

 staff concludes that Spearco‘s intercooled turbocharger kit evaluated will not

 adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for which exemption is

 requested.

 III.    RECOMMENDATIONS
         The staff recommends that Spearco be granted an exemption for their

 add—on intercooled turbocharger kit for installation on 1983 through 1985

 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 6.9 liter International

 Harvester heavy—duty diesel engine.     The staff also recommends that Executive

 Order D—140—9 be issued.


IV.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION

      The purpose of turbocharging an engine is to increase the volumetric

efficiency of a engine by forcing more air into an engine than it would take

in under stock (non—turbocharged) OEM conditions.      An intercooler manifold is

added to reduce the temperature of the compressed intake air going into the

engine.

      The major components of the Spearco intercooled turbocharger kit are a

1.0 A/R ratio Rajay/Rotomaster turbocharger, an exhaust manifold to

turbocharger adaptor, an intercooler manifold, and an intake manifold bonnet.

The components are packaged with installation hardware and instructions and

sold as a kit.

      The QEM exhaust manifold (left bank) is replaced by the Spearco exhaust

manifold to turbocharger adaptor.     The turbine inlet mounts directly to the

replacement exhaust manifold.     Intake air is routed from the air cleaner

assembly to the compressor.     Compressed air is then piped through the

intercooler manifold into the engine.

      For optimum performance of the turbocharger kit, the fuel pump is

recalibrated for increased fuel delivery.      Spearco recommends that the fuel

delivery rate be increased by 12%.    This can be accomplished by rotating the

adjusting screw 150°.

      Maximum positive manifold pressure (boost) is limited to 10 psig by the

size of {and the speed of exhaust flow through ) the turbine housing.      No

wastegate or other active boost limiting device is used.

      Lubrication and cooling of the turbocharger is provided by oil hosed

from the oi1 pressure sending unit.     Oil from the turbocharger is returned to

the oil pan.

      All OEM emission controls are left intact.

V.    TURBOCHARGER KIT EVALUATION

      Evaluation of the Spearco add—on intercooled turbocharger kit consisted

of comparative (without and with the kit installed on the test vehicle)

exhaust emission tests.     A 1984 Ford F—350XL was used for generating the test

data from steady—state tests as per adopted "Criteria for Evaluation of Add—On

Parts and Modified Parts; Criteria for Testing Aftermarket Turbochargers".

      A summary of the data from comparative tests is shown in Table 1.

VI.   DISCUSSION

      A summary of the comparative emission data is tabulated in Table 1.        The

data indicates that exhaust emissios are lower with the turbocharger kit than

without the kit, except a slight increase in oxides of nitrogen {NOx)

emissions during idle.     In general, the data demonstrates compliance with the

requirements for the exemption.

      Due to limited resources, ARB did not perform confirmatory tests.
