 Pursuant to the authority vested in the Air Resources Board by Section 27156 |
 of the Vehicle Code; and

 Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and
 39516 of the Health and Safety Code and Executive Order G—45—5;

 IT IS ORDERED AND RESQOLVED: That the installation of the MAX—25 supercharger
 kit mode! No. 510—9517408—1 manufactured by K.F. Industries, Inc. has been
 found not to reduce the effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution
 control devices and, therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section
 27156 of the Vehicle Code for ali 1986—1988 model—year Chevrolet and GMC
 light—duty trucks powered by a GMC 2.8 liter V—6 gasoline fuel—injected engine.

 Modifications to the OEM— emission—related parts due to the installation of the
 supercharger kit include replacement of the fuel—injectors with GM part number
 17111694, replacement of the Electronic Control Module {ECM) PROM with K.F.
 Industries #KF—18 PROM and the addition of spring loaded door to the OEM air
 cleaner assembly.

 All other original equipment emission control devices must be retained.     The
 vehicle must be tuned to the vehicle manufacturer‘s specifications.

— Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as exempted
  by the Air Resources Board, that adversely affect the performance of a
  vehicle‘s poliution control system shall invalidate this Executive Order.

 This exemption shall not apply to any device, apparatus, or mechanism
 advertised, offered for sale or sold with, or installed on, a motor vehicle
 prior to or concurrent with transfer to an ultimate purchaser.

 Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in this
 Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other than
 those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless prior approval
 is obtained from the Air Resources Board.   Exemption of a kit shall not be       _
 construed as an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or advertise any component
 of a kit as an individual device.

 This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect that the
 use of this device may have on any warranty either expressed or implied by the
 vehicle manufacturer.

    device, ‘represent, any device as a motor vehicle poliution contrel device
    for use on any used motor vehicle unless that device has been certified by
    the state board.     No person shall sell, offer for sale, advertise, or
   represent any motor vehicle pollution control device as a certified device
   ‘which, in fact, is not a certified device. Any viciation of this
   subdivision is a misdemeanor."

Any apparent violation of the conditions of this Executive Order will be
submitted to the Attorney General of California for such action as he deems
advisable.

    pick—up truck and from confirmatory tests performed at the Haagen—Smit

    Laboratory, the staff concludes that the K. F. Industries, Inc. MAX—25

    supercharger kit will not adversely affect emissions from the vehicles

    described above.

          The staff recommends that K. F. Industries, Inc. be granted an exemption

    as requested and that Executive Order D—150—2 be issued.

EVALUATION OF K. F. INDUSTRIES, INC.‘S MAX—25 SUPERCHARGER KIT FOR EXEMPTION
FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION
2222, TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE

1.     INTROBUCTION

       K, F, Industries, Inc., (KFI) of Sun Valley, California 91353, has

requested an exemption from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for

their MAX—25 supercharger kit.     The supercharger kit is designed for

installation on 1986—1988 model—year Chevrolet and GMC light—duty trucks

powered by a 2,.8 liter V—6 gasoline fuel—injected engine.

       KFI has submitted data from comparative (stock baseline vs. supercharged)

emissions tests conducted on a 1987 GMC S—15 4x4 pick—up truck at Import

Certification Laboratories, Inc., Orange, California,.    Confirmatory tests were

conducted on the same vehicle at the Haagen—Smit Laboratory in El Monte,

California.

IL.    CONCLUSION

       Based on the results from comparative exhaust emissions tests performed

by KFI, at an independent laboratory on a 1987 GMC S—15 4x4 pick—up truck, and

from confirmatory tests performed by the ARB on the same vehicle, the staff

concludes that KFI‘s supercharger kit will not adversely affect exhaust

emissions from the vehicles described above.

III.      RECOMMENDATIONS

       The staff recommends that KFI be granted an exemption for their add—on

MAX—25 supercharger kit and that Executive Order D—150—2 be issued,

IV.,   SUPERCHARGER KIT DESCRiPTION

       The MAX—25 Supercharger Kit has been specifically designed for

installation on the 1986—1988 GMC 2.8 liter, V—6 gasoline fuel—injected

engine.     The kit operates in conjunction with the OEM throttle body


fuel—injection and the emission control systems already certified with the

stock engine.    All the necessary hardware and supplies are included‘"in the

kit.    Some of the OEM parts are removed and discarded to be replaced by custom

parts supplied with the kit.    A complete manual describing the parts, and

step—by—step installation procedures is supplied with the kit {see Appendix 1).

        The supercharger (Model No. 510—9517408—1) is belt driven at 2.0 times

the speed of the engine which provides 5 psig of boost at 5000 rpm.    To

provide additional fuel to maintain proper air—fuel ratios during boost

conditions, larger fuel injectors are installed in the OEM throttle body.       A

spring loaded door is added to the air cleaner assembly to allow for

additional air flow during boost conditions.

        The Electronic Control Module (ECM) PROM is replaced with a KFI PROM

which calibrates the ECM to perform in conjunction with the supercharger.       All

functions of the ECM are maintained, however, they are slightly modified by

the KFI PROM.    Cold—start, EGR control, fuel control, and spark control are

modified to maintain acceptable emissions from the supercharged vehicle.      The

KFI PROMs are identified by the OEM GM part numbers they replace and the

designation "KF—18" (see Appendix 2).

        A noticeable power improvement is achieved and driveability remains

good.    Fuel economy is slightly reduced but emissions remain at or below

baseline levels.

        In addition to the standard kit identification label required by the ARB

for exempted aftermarket parts, KFI will supply an additional sticker to be

attached to the ECM stating that the PROM has been changed so that if there is

a PROM failure the KFI PROM must be installed instead of the OEM PROM which

may cause engine damage if used in conjunction with the supercharger (see

Appendix 3).


V.       SUPERCHARGER KIT EVALUATION

         A 1987 GMC S—15 4x4, light—duty pick—up truck with a 2.8 liter, V—6

gasoline fuel—injected engine was used for the evaluation of the supercharger

kit.     The dynamometer inertia weight and loading used were 4000 Ilbs. and 11.8

hp, respectively.

         Comparative emissions tests conducted by Import Certification

Laboratories, Inc. for KFI and by the ARB, consisted of back—to—back

cold—start CVS—75 emissions tests and hot—start Highway Fuel Economy tests.

These tests were used to determine exhaust emissions in the unmodified

(baseline) and supercharged (device installed) configurations for comparison.

A summary of the test results is shown below:

VI.   DISCUSSION

      The results of the exhaust emissions tests performed on the test vehicle

show no signifiant increase in emissions due to the installation of the

supercharger kit.   KFI has fulfilled the requirements for the exemption and

therefore Executive Order D—150—2 should be issued.
