                                     SUMMARY



      Gale Banks Engineering (Banks) has requested an update to the exemption

from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for their add—on

turbocharger kit Model No. 6.26 designed for Chevrolet/6MC heavy—duty vehicles

which are powered by the General Motors 6.2 liter heavy—duty diesel engine.

      The request is to include the 1987 model—year vehicle applications.

This would make the exemption applicable to the 1982—1987 Chevrolet/GMC

heavy—duty vehicles whifih are powered by the General Motors 6.2 liter

heavy—duty diesel engine.

      Based on the fact that Banks was previously granted exemption for the

1982—1986 model—years and that the 1987 certification documents show that the

General Motors engine family GMO6.2DAB was carried over from the 1986

model—year, the staff concludes that the Banks 6.2§ turbocharger system witl

have the same degree of performance/emissions impact on the 1987 model—year

engines as it has on the 1986 and earlier model—year engines.

      Therefore, the staff recommends that Banks be granted an update and that

Executive Order D—161—3 be issued.

         EVALUATION OF GALE BANKS ENGINEERING‘S ADD—ON TURBOCHARGER KIT
                MODEL NO. 6.26 FOR INSTALLATION IN CHEVROLET/GMC
                   HEAVY—DUTY VEHICLES POWERED BY A 6.2 LITER

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

91702, has requested an update to the exemption from the prohibitions of

Vehicle Code Section 27156 for their add—on turbocharger kit Model No. 6.26

for Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty vehicles powered by the 6.2 liter General Motors

heavy—duty diesel engine.    The request is to include the 1987 model—year

vehicles.    This would make the exemption applicable to the 1982—1987 Chevrolet/

GMC heavy—duty vehicles powered by the General Motors 6.2 liter heavy—duty

diesel engines.

       Banks was granted an exemption for the 1982—1986 model—year under

Executive Order D—161—1 on May 4, 1986.

II.    CONCLUSION
       Based on the submitted information, the comparative exhaust emissions

tests performed on a 1986 Chevrolet Suburban heavy—duty diesel truck, and the

1987 certification documents which show that the General Motors engine family

GMO6.2DAB was a carry—over from 1986, the staff concludes that the

installation of the Banks turbocharger kit Model No. 6.26 will not adversely

affect exhaust emissions from the 1987 vehicles for which the update has been

requested.

III.   RECOMMENDATIONS
       The staff recommends that Banks be granted an update to include the 1987

model—year Chevrolet/GMC heavy—duty vehicles powered by the 6.2 liter General

Motors heavy—duty diesel engine and that Executive Order D—161—3 be issued.


IV.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND EVALUATION

      For details of the turbocharger kit description and evaluation, please

refer to the May, 1986 staff report entitled, "EVALUATION OF GALE BANKS

ENGINEERING‘S ADD—ON TURBOCHARGER KIT MODEL NO. 6.2G FOR INSTALLATION IN

CHEVROLET/GMC HEAVY—DUTY VEHICLES POWERED BY A 6.2 LITER GENERAL MOTORS

HEAVY—DUTY DIESEL ENGINE®".

VI.   DISCUSSION

      The previous evaluation of the Banks 6.2G turbocharger system showed

that it did not cause an adverse emissions effect when installed on a 1986

Chevrolet Suburban.   Since the General Motors GMOG.2DAB engine family has not

been changed for the 1987 model—year, no adverse emissions effect will occur

when the Banks 6.2G turbocharger system is installed on the 1987 model—year

vehicles.

      An update should be granted and Executive Order D—161—3 should be issued.
