                                  SUMMARY



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

Order D—161—11, which exempts their Turbocharger System Model 6.9F for the

following vehicles:

       1.    1983—1987 model year Ford vehicles powered by a 6.9L Navistar
             International heavy—duty diesel engine and

       2.    1988—1989 model year Ford vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar
             heavy—duty diesel engine.

Banks has requested that the exemption be updated to include the 1990 model

year Ford vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar heavy—duty diesel engine.

       Because there is no emissions related difference between the 1989 and

the 1990 model year versions of the 7.3L Navistar heavy—duty diesel engine and

no modifications have been made to the Turbocharger System Model 6.9F, the

staff believes that the add—on turbocharger system will have no adverse

effect on exhaust emissions from the engine for which the exemption update is

requested.

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

that Executive Order D—161—14 be issued.

EVALUATION OF GALE BANKS ENGINEERING‘S ADD—ON TURBOCHARGER SYSTEM MODEL 6.9F
      FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156
              IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE
                        CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE



I.     INTRODUCTION

       Gale Banks Engingering (Banks) of 546 Duggan Avenue, Azusa CA 91702, has

requested an update to Executive Order (E.0.) D—161—11 dated October 27, 1988.

E.0. D—161—11 exempted their Turbocharger System Model 6.9F from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for the following vehicles:

       1.      1983—1987 model year Ford vehicles powered by a 6.9L Navistar
               International heavy—duty diesel engine and

       2.      1988—1989 model year Ford vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar
               International heavy—duty diesel engine.

Banks has requested that the exemption be updated to include the 1990 model

year Ford vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar heavy—duty diesel engine.

II.    CONCLUSIO                                   |

       Because there is no emissions related difference between the 1989 and

the 1990 model year versions of the 7.3L Navistar heavy—duty diesel engine and

no modifications have been made to the Turbocharger System Model 6.9F, the

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

on exhaust emissions from the engine for which the exemption update is

requested.

III.   RECOMMENDATION

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

that Executive Order D—161—14 be issued.

IV.          BOCHARGER   KIT   DESCRIPTION         AT

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

output of thé engine by compressing the intake charge to pressures above that
                                             —1—


of the atmosphere.     This increased pressure allows a greater charge density to

enter the combustion chamber and increases the volumetric efficiency of the

engine.    The maximum fuel delivery is slightly increased to maintain proper

air—fuel ratios when the turbocharger is providing positive manifold pressure

(boost).    Maximum positive manifold pressure is limited to 7 psi by the size

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

the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) fuel injection governor.

Controlling the maximum engine speed also controls the maximum turbine speed

and corresponding boost pressure.

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

Model No. TO4B or a Schwitzer/Banks Model No. TO4B25 turbocharger, custom

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

hardware necessary to complete the installation.     Modification to the OEM

emission related parts due to the installation of the turbocharger system

include replacement of the air cleaner assembly and replacement of the OEM

exhaust system with a 3" diameter exhaust system.

V.        DISCUSSION

          The applicant is making available the add—on Turbocharger System Model

6.9F for the 1990 model year Ford vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar heavy—

duty diesel engine.     The applicant claims that no modifications to the system

are necessary for installation on 1990 model year applicable vehicles.

Certification documents show that the 1990 model year 7.3L Navistar heavy—duty

diesel engine is carried over from the previous year for which the

turbocharger system has been exempt.

          The staff believes that the add—on turbocharger system will have no

adverse effect on the vehicles/engines for which the exemption update is

requested and that no additional testing is required.
