Chevrolet/GMC            heavy—duty                diesel!      engines.

             The        request           is        to     include         the    1988       through      1989     mode!

Suburban          applications .                   This    would      make       the    exemption         applicable

to    the   1982—1989             Chevrolet/GMC                     heavy—duty          vehicles          which      are

powered          by     the       General            Motors          6.2     Liter           heavy—duty          diese!

             Based           on     the        fact        t ha t     Banks           was    previously         granted

exemption         for    the      1982—1987 mode!                   years    and       that    the    1988      through

concludes             that    Banks       6.2G       turbocharger            system will             have    the    same

degree      of    performance/emissions                         impact      on    the       1988     through        1989

model—year             engines        as       it    has     on     the    1987       and    earlier      model—ysar

engines .

             Therefore,              the       staff       recommends            that       Banks    be   granted     an

update      and       that    Executive             Order       D—161—13         be    issued.
