2=9we




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

                    Order D—161—15, which exempts their Turbocharger System Model 6.2G from the

                    prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for 1982—1990 model year

                    Chevrolet/GMC 6.2L heavy—duty diesel vehicles.   Banks has requested that the

                    exemption be updated to include the 1991 model year Chevrolet/GMC vehicles

                    powered by a 6.2L heavy—duty diesel engine.

                         Since the 1991 model year 6.2L Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty diesel engine

                    is carried over from the previous year for which the turbocharger system has

                    been exempted, and no modifications have been made to the Turbocharger

                    System Model 6.2G, 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—18 be issued.

 EVALUATION OF GALE BANKS ENGINEERING ADD—ON TURBOCHARGER SYSTEM MODEL 6.2G
     FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE PROKHIBITIONS OF VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156
             IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE
                       CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS


I.    INTRODBUGTION

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

91702, has requested an update to Executive Order (E.0) D—161—15 dated

August 9, 1990.       The E.0. D—161—15 exempts the Banks‘ Turbocharger System

Model 6.2G6 from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code (VC) Section 27156 for the

1982—1990 model—year Chevrolet/GMC 6.2L heavy—duty diesel vehicles.

Banks has requested that the exemption be updated to include the 1991 model

year Chevrolet/GMC vehicles powered by a 6.2L engine.

II.   CONCLUSIONS

      Since the 1991 model year 6.2L Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty diesel engine

is carried over from the previous year for which the turbocharger system has

been exempted, and no modifications have been made to the Turbocharger

System Model 6.26, 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—18 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 10 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 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 system include

       replacement of the air cleaner assembly and replacement of the OEM exhaust
emm,




       system with a 3" diameter exhaust system.

       V.   DISCUSSION

            The applicant is making the add—on Turbocharger System Model 6.2G

       available for the 1991 model year Chevrolet/GMC vehicles powered by a 6. 2L

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

       system are necessary for installation on 1991 model year applicable

       vehicles.    Certification documents show that the 1991 model year 6.2L

       Chevrolet/GMC 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 no additional testing is

       required.
