                                   SUMMARY



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

Order D—161—14, which exempts their Turbocharger System Model 6.9F for the

following vehicles:

     1.   1983—1987 model| year Ford vehicles powered by 6.9L Navistar

          International heavy—duty diesel engine, and

     2.   1988—1990 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 1991 model

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

     Since the 1991 mode] 7.3L Navistar heavy—duty diesel engine fs carried

over from the previous year for which an exemption has been granted, 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—17 be issued.

 EVALUATION OF GALE BANKS ENGINEERING 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 CODE OF REGULATIONS


I.    INIRODUCTION

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

$1702, has requesfed an update to Executive Order (E.0) D—161—14.     The E.0.

D—161—14 currently exempts Banks‘ Turbocharger System Model 6.9F from the

prohibitions of Vehicle Code (VC) Section 27156 for the following vehicles:

      1.   1983—1987 model year Ford vehicles powered by a 6.39L Navistar

           International heavy—duty diesel engine, and

      2.   1988—1990 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 1991 model

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

II.   CONCLUSIONS

      Since the 1991 model year 7.3L Navistar heavy—duty diesel engine is

carried over from the previous year for which an exemption has been granted,

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

the Executive Order D—161—17 be issued.

IV.    TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

      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 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 engine

     turbine speed and corresponding boost pressure.

          The major components of the kit include a 1.0 air ratio (A/R)

     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
mR




     replacement of the OEM exhaust system with a 3" diameter exhaust system.

     ¥.   BISCUSSION

          The applicant is making the add—on Turbocharger System Model 6.9F

     available for 1991 model year Ford vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar

     heavy—duty diesel engine.    The applicant cliaims no modifications to the

     system are necessary for installation on 1991 model year applicable

     vehicles.    Certification documents show that the 1991 model year 7.3L

     Navistar heavy—duty diesel engine is carried over from the previous year for

     which the turbocharger system has been exempted.

          Based on these considerations, 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.
