                                       SUMMARY




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

Order D—161—6, which exempts their turbocharger kit mode! No. 6.9F for 1983—

1987 mode!—year Ford Motor Company heavy—duty vehicles poWered by a 6.9

liter Navistar   International heavy—duty diese! engine.       They have requested

that the exemption be updated to include the 1988 model—year Ford Motor

Company heavy—duty vehicles powered by a 7.3        liter Navistar   International

heavy—duty diese! engine.

       Based on the following:       (1)   the fact that the kit applicable to 1988

model—year 7.3   liter Navistar   International    heavy—duty diesel engine   is

identical to the exempted kit;    (2) the fact that the 1988 7.3       liter Navistar

International heavy—duty diese! engine is a replacement engine for the 1987

6.9 liter Navistar   International    heavy—duty diesel engine and that both

engines have similar designs; (3) the test data from previous comparative

exhaust emission tests performed for exempting the kit; and (4) that

the engine design complies with the carryover criteria as outlined in EPA‘s

Advisory Circulars 17F and 20B, the staff believes that the add—on

turbocharger kit will have no adverse effect on the engines for which

exemption update is requested.

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

and the Executive Order D—161—9 be Issued.

[.      NTRODUCT LON

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

California 91702, has requested an update to the existing Air Resources

Board Executive Order (E.0.) D—161—6 dated October 19, 1987.         E.0. D—161—6

exempted the Banks‘    turbocharger kit mode! No. 6.9F from the prohlbitions in

Vehicle Code Section 27156 for 1983—1987 model—year Ford Motor Company

heavy—duty vehlgles powered by a 6.9 liter Navistar      international   heavy—duty

diesel engine.    The applicant has requested that the exemption be updated to

include the 1988 model—year Ford Motor Company heavy—duty vehicles powered

by a 7.3 liter Navistar     international heavy—duty diese! engine.

E1.    CONCLUS ION

       Based on the following:       (1) the fact that the kit applicable to 1988

model—year 7.3 liter Navistar International heavy—duty diese! engine is

Identical   to the exempted kit;    (2) the fact that the 1988 7.3   liter Navistar

international heavy—duty diesel engine is a replacement engine for the 1987

6.9 liter Navistar     international heavy—duty diesel engine and that both

engines have similar designs;      (3) the test data from previous comparative

exhaust émlssion tests performed for exempting the kit; and (45 that. the

engine design complies with the carryover criteria as outlined in EPA‘s

Advisory Circulars 17F and 208B,    the staff believes that the add—on

turbocharger kit will have no adverse effect on the engines for which

exemption update is requested.


PL1.   RECOMMENDAT I ON

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

and that Executive Order D—161—9 be          issued.

IV.    TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

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

cutput of the engine by increasing its.volumetric efficiency.             This is

accomplished by compressing the          intake charge to pressures above that of the

atmosphere.     The    Increaged pressure allows a greater charge density to enter

the combustion chamber providing more oxygen for combustion.             The max imum

fue! delivery    is slightly increased       in order to maintain proper air—fue!

ratios with the       increased air flow from the turbocharger when it       is

providing positive manifold pressure (boost).

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

mode! 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         instailation.

       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 OEM fuel    injection governor which       is not modified by the installation of

the kit.    Therefore, by controlling maximum engine speed, maximum turbine

speed and corresponding boost pressures are also controlled.

       No OEM emission controls are removed or disconnected when the

turbocharger kit       is   installed.

v.     D1        ols

       Banks‘ add—on turbocharger kit modei No. 6.9F           is designed for

installation on 1983—1987 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by


a 6.9   liter Navistar    International heavy—duty diesel engine.     The exemption

was granted'on the basis that the effectiveness of the vehicle‘s pollution

control system was not reduced.       Evaluation consisied of comparative

(baseline versus turbocharged) steady state tests.

          The applicant   is making available the add—on turbocharger kit mode!

No. 6.9F for the 1988 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a

7.3   liter Navistar   International heavy—duty diesel engine.      The applicant

claims that no modifications to thé kit are needed in order to be compatible

with the 1988 models.      They have requested that the e*emption be updated to

include these 1988 model—year vehicles.

          In response to the applicant‘s request, the staff compared the engine

design of 1987 andg1988 model—year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a

6.9 or a 7.3 liter Navistar       International heavy—duty diese!   engine.

Certification documents and correspondence from Navistar       International   to

the ARB    indicated that the 1988 model—year 7.3 liter engine      is the

replacement engine for the 1987 model—year 6.9 liter engine.          The staff also

noted that the engine designs of both 1987 and 1988 engines are similar.

          Because the data on a 1987 6.9 liter test vehicle showed that the

emissions were not adversely affected when the turbocharger kit was

instailed, and that the engine design complies with the carryover criteria

as outiined in EPA‘s Advisory Circulars 17F and 20B, the add—on turbochrger

kit wIll have no adverse effect on the 1988 moael—year Ford Motor Company

heavy—duty vehicles powered by a 7.3 liter Navistar       International heavy—duty

diese! engine.    No additional    testing was required or performed for updating

the exemption as requested.
