                                           SUMMARY




              Gale Banks Engineering (Banks) has requested an update to Executive

      Order D—161—9, which exempts their turbocharger kit model No. 6.9F for 1983—

      1987 and 1988 model—years Ford Motor Company heavy—duty vehicles powered by

      a 6.9 and a 7.3     liter Navistar   International    heavy—duty diesel   engine,

      respectively.     They have requested that the exemption be updated to include

      the 1988 model—year Ford Motor Company heavy—duty vehicles powered by a 7.3

      liter Navistar   International heavy—duty diesel engine and equipped with a

      5—speed manual   transmission, which requires rerouting the exhaust piping.

              Based on the fact that the kit applicable to 1988 model—year 7.3

      liter Navistar    International heavy~duty diesel vehicles equipped with a

      5—speed manual    transmission is identical    to the exempted kit (for 1983—1987

      6.9   liter and 1988 7.3   liter), except   for   the exhaust piping,   the staff

      believes that the add—on turbocharger kit will       have no adverse effect on the

      engines for which exemption update is requested.

              The staff    recommends that Banks be granted an update as requested,

      and the Executive Order D—161—10 be    issued.

.       LNTROBUCT 1 ON

        Gale   Banks     Engineering        (Banks)      of   546    Duggan Avenue,   Azusa,

California $91702, has requested an update to the existing Air                     Resources

Board Executive Order (E.0.) D—161—9 dated December 4, 1987.                    E.0. D—161—9

exempted the Banks‘      turbocharger Kit mode! No. 6.9F from the prohibitions             in

Vehicle Code Section 27158 for             1983—1987 and 1988 model—years Ford Motor

Internat tona|     heavy—duty‘diesel         engine,     respectively.    The applicant has

requested that the exemption be updatsd td Include the 1988 model—year Ford

Motor    Company      heavy—duty        vehicles     powered    by    a 7.3   l|iter Navistar

International heavy—duty diesel engine and equipped with a S5—speed manual

transmission, which requires rerouting the exhaust piping.

Db.     CONCLUS tON

        Based on the fact         that    the kit    applicable to 1988 model—year 7.3

Diter Naviétar     International    heavy—duty diesel vehicles equipped with a

S—speed manual   transmlission     is    identical   to the exempted kit, except for the

exhaust piping, the staff believes that              the add—on turbocharger kit wiil

have    no   adverse     effect    on the engines for which exemption update               is

requested.

DT.     RECOMMENDAT

        The staff recommends that Banks be granted an update as requested,

ind that Executive Order D—161—10 be           issued.


IV .   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

       The purpose of            the Banks turbocharger kit            is to increase the power

output of the engine by               increasing    |ts volumetric efficiency.              This    is

accomplished by compressing the             intake charge to pressures above that of the

atmosphere.       The increased pressure allows a greater charge density to enter

the combustion chamber            providing more oxygen for combustion.               The max imum

fue! delivery      is slightly increased           in order    to maintain proper        air—fuel

ratios     with    the      increased air        flow from the turbocharger when              it    is

providing positive manilifold pressure (boost).

         The major components of             the kit    include a 1.0 A/R ratio Rotomaster

modeI No. TO4B or a Schwitzer/Banks Mode!| No.                 TO4B25    turbocharger,       custom

Intake and exhaust tubing,               air cleaner     assembly, brackets, hoses and the

hardware necessary to complete the               installation.

       Max imum positive manifold pressure              is    [imited to 7 psi by the size of

the turbine and the compressor.             The maximum engine speed            is regulated by

the OEM fuse!     injection governor which          is not modifiled by the instalilation of

the kit.     Therefore, by controlling maximum engine speed, maximum turbine

speed and corresponding boost pressures are aiso controlled.

         Modifications           to    the OEM     emlission—related          parts   due   to     the

inétallation of           the   turbocharger kit       inciude a new air cleaner assembly,

a new 3"    low restriction muffler and 3" diameter exhaust pipe.

V.       D | SCUSS | ON

         Banks‘     add—on      turbocharger kit model!          No.   6.9F    is   designed       for

installation on           1983—1987 and 1988 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles

powered by a 6.9 and 7.3              liter Navistar    International         heavy—duty diese!

engine,    respectively.          Thse exemption was granted on the basis that the

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


        Evaluation consisted of          comparative (baseline versus turbocharged) steady

        state tests.

                 The applicant    is making available the add—on turbocharger kit model!

        No. §6.9F for the 1988 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a

        7.3   liter Navistar    Iinternational     heavy—duty diesel! engine and equipped with

        a S—speed manual       transmlission.        The   applicant   claims    that    the   only

        modification to the kit needed        in order to be compatible with these vehicles

        is rerouting the exhaust         piping.      Comparative drawings of the exhaust

        piping    is appended.        They have requested that the sxemption be updated to

        inciude these 1988 model—year S—speed manual           transmission equipped vehicles.

                 In response to the appilcant‘s request, the staff compared the des ign

        of the two kits (kits previously exsmpted for 1983—1987 8.9              liter   and   1988

        7.3   liter and kit     for    S5—speed transmission}. The staff        is of the opinion

        that the add—on turbocharger kit for the 5—speed manual            transmission wii l

        have no adverse effect on the vehicles/engines for which sexemption update               is

        requested.
