                                     summary

        Gale Banks Engingering (Banks) has requested an exemption from the
prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156 for their Rapido Turbo 6.9 add—on

turbocharger kit Model No. 6.9FR designed for 1983—1987 Ford Motor Company

heavy—duty vehicles which are powered by the Navistar International (formerly

International Harvester) 6.9 liter heavy—duty diesel engine.

        The Rapido Tufbo 6.9 add—on turbocharger kit Model No. 6.9FR is

manufactured by Banks exclusively for the Rapido Group.    It is identical to

the Banks add—on turbocharger kit Model No. 6.9F except for the logo embossed

in the air cleaner housing lid and the logo printed on the turbocharger system

identification label.    In place of the "BANKS" logo is the "RAPIDO TURBO 6.9"

logo.

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

Model No. 6.9F kit for use on 1983—1987 Ford heavy—duty vehicles which are

powered by the Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engine under Executive

Order D—161—2 and the only differences between the Model No. 6.9F and the

Mode! No. 6.9FR are cosmetic, the staff recommends that Banks be granted their

request and that Executive Order D—161—4 be issued.

          EVALUATION OF GALE BANKS ENGINEERING‘S RAPIDO TURBO 6.9 ADD—ON
          TURBOCHARGER KIT MODEL NO. 6.9FR FOR INSTALLATION IN FORD MOTOR
                 COMPANY HEAVY—DUTY VEHICLES POWERED BY A 6.9 LITER
                   NAVISTAR INTERNATIONAL HEAVY—DUTY DIESEL ENGINE

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

91702, has requested an exemption from the prohibifions of Vehicle Code

Section 27156 for their Rapido Turbo 6.9 add—on turbocharger kit Model No.

6.9FR for Ford Motor Company heavy—duty vehicles powered by the 6.9 liter

Navistar International (formerly International Harvester) heavy—duty diesel

engine.

       The Rapido Turbo 6.9 add—on turbocharger kit Model NO. 6.9FR is

manufactured by Banks Engineering exclusively for the Rapido Group.      It is

identical to the Banks add—on turbocharger kit Model No. 6.9F except for the

logo embossed in the air cleaner housing lid and the logo printed on the

turbocharger system identification label.    In place of the "BANKS" logo is the

"RAPIDO TURBO 6.9" logo.
II.    CONCLUSION

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

Mode] No. 6.9F kit for use on 1983—1987 Ford heavy—duty vehicles which are

powered by the Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engine under Executive

Order D—161—2 and the only differences between the Model No. 6.9F and the

Mode? No 6.9FR are cosmetic the staff concludes that the Model No. 6.9FR will

have the same degree of performance/emissions impact as the Model No. 6.9F.

III.   RECOMMENDATIONS
       The staff recommends that Banks be granted their request and that

Executive Order D—161—4 be issued.


IV.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND EVALUATION

      For details of the turbocharger kit description and evaluation, please

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

ENGINEERING‘S ADD—ON TURBOCHARGER KIT MODEL NO. 6.9F FOR INSTALLATION IN FORD

MOTOR COMPANY HEAVY—DUTY VEHICLES POWERED BY A 6.9 LITER INTERNATIONAL
HARVESTER HEAVY—DUTY DIESEL ENGINE".

V.    DISCUSSION

      The previous evaluation of the Banks 6.9F turbocharger system showed
that it did not cause an adverse emissions effect when installed on a 1985

Ford F—250 pick—up truck.   Since the Navistar International 6.9LD engine

family has not been changed for the 1986 and 1987 model—years, no adverse

emissions effect will occur when the Banks 6.9F turbocharger system is

installed on the later model—year vehicles.   Since the Model No. 6.9FR is

functionally identical to the Model No. 6.9F no adverse emissions effect will

occur when the Rapido Turbo 6.9 turbocharger system is installed on the

1983—1987 Ford heavy—duty diesel vehicles.

      An exemption should be granted and Executive Order D—161—4 should be

issued.
