                                  SUMMARY



       Gale Banks Engineering (Banks) has applied for an update to Executive

Order D—161—13, which exempts their turbocharger kit model 6.2G from the

prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for 1982—1989 model year

Chevrolet/GMC 6.2L heavy—duty diesel vehicles.   The update request is for

the inclusion of the 1990 model year Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty diesel

vehicles in the exemption.

       Because Banks was granted an exemption for 1982—1989 model year 6.2L

Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty diesel vehicles and that 1990 model year 6.2L

heavy—duty diesel engine is carry—over from the previous years, the staff

concludes that Banks‘ add—on turbocharger kit model 6.2G will not have an

adverse effect on exhaust emissions from vehicles for which the exemption

update has been requested.

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

that Executive Order D—161—15 be issued.

            MODEL 6.2G FOR INSTALLATION IN 1982—1990 MODEL YEAR

I.      NT       T

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

has applied for an update to Executive Order D—161—13, which exempts their

turbocharger kit model 6.2G from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section

27156 for 1982—1989 model year Chevrolet/GMC 6.2L heavy—duty diesel

vehicles.     The update request would include 1990 model year Chevrolet/GMC

heavy—duty diesel vehicles in the exemption.

II.    CONCLUSIGN

       Because Banks was granted an exemption for 1982—1989 model year 6.2L

Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty diesel vehicles and that 1990 model year 6.2L

heavy—duty diesel engine is carry—over from the previous years, the staff

concludes that the Banks‘ add—on turbocharger kit model 6.2G§ will not have

an adverse effect on exhaust emissions from vehicles for which the exemption

update has been requested.

II1.   RECO          TION

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

that Executive Order D—161—15 be issued.

IV.     URBOCHARGER KIT      DESCRI   N

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

output of the engine by compressing the intake charge to pressures above

that 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

in order to maintain proper air—fuel ratios when the turbocharger is

providing positive manifold pressure (boost).     Maximum positive manifold

pressure is limited to 10 psig by the size of the turbine and the


compressor.    The maximum engine speed is regulated by the original equipment

manufacturer (OEM) fuel injection governor.    Therefore, by controlling

maximum engine speed, maximum turbine speed and corresponding boost

pressures are also controlled.

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

model! no. T0O4B turbocharger, custom intake adaptors, 3" diameter exhaust

pipe, 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 kit include replacement of the

air cleaner assembly and replacement of the OEM exhaust system with a 3"

diameter exhaust system.

v.     DISCUS$SION

       Banks‘ add—on turbocharger kit model 6.2G is designed for

installation on 6.2L Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty diesel engines.     The applicant

is making the turbocharger available for 1990 model year 6.2L Chevrolet/GMC

heavy—duty diesel vehicles.     The applicant claims that no modifications to

the kit are necessary for installation on 1990 model year applicable

vehicles.     Certification documents show that the 1990 model year 6.2L

Chevrolet/GMC diesel engine is carried over from the previous years.       Based

on these considerations the staff concludes that no additional testing is

required.
