90301 has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of

the California Vehicle Code (VC) for the 460 EFI Header System.   The 460 EFI

Header System is designed for installation on 1987—91 heavy—duty Ford vehicles

equipped with a 7.5 liter (460 CID)‘fue] injected engine.

       Based on the results from comparative exhaust emission tests performed

cat an independent laboratory on a 1991 Ford F—250 pick—up truck, the staff

concludes that The Turbo Shop, Inc.‘s 460 EFI Header System will not adversely

affect exhaust emission from vehicles for which an exemption is requested.

       The staff recommends that The Turbo Shop, Inc. be granted an exemption

1.      INTRODUCTION

        The Turbo Shop, inc. of 940 W. Manchester Blivd., Inglewood, California

90301 has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of

the California Vehicle Code for the 460 EFI Header System.    The 460 EFI Header

System is designeé for instal?atiofl on 1987—91 heavy—duty Ford vehicles powered

by a 7.5 liter (460 CID) fuel injected engine.

        The Turbo Shop, Inc. has submitted data from comparative emission tests

conducted on a 1991 Ford F—250 pick—up truck at Milton Roy Laboratory, Orange,

California.



11.     CONCLUSION

         Based on the resulits from comparative exhaust emission tests performed

at Milton Roy Laboratory on a 1991 Ford F—250 pick—up truck, the staff

concludes that The Turbo Shop, Inc.‘s 460 EFI Header System will not adversely

affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for which an exemption is requested.



III.       COMMENDATION

         The staff recommends that The Turbo Shop, Inc. be granted an exemption

for their 460 EFI Header System for installation on 1987—199%1 model—year heavy—


V.      460 EFI HEADER SYSTEM EVALUATION AND DISCUSSION

        A 1991 Ford F—250 pick—up truck with a 7.5 liter (460 CID) fuel injected

 gasoline engine was used for the evaluation of the 460 EFI Header System.    The

 dynamometer inertia weight and loading used were 7000—lbs and 18.2—hp

 respectively.

        Comparafive emissions tests conducted by Milton Roy Laboratory

 for The Turbo Shop, Inc. consisted of one Cold—Start CVS—75 emission test in

 the unmodified (baseline) configurétion, followed by one Cold—Start CVS—75

 emission test in the modified (header system installed) configuration.   The ARB

. did not perform tests to confirm the test results submitted by the applicant.

 A summary of the test results is shown below:

 % Difference        +12.8%              +11.1%              +2.8%

         The differences between the device emission test results and baseline

 emission test results submitted by the applicant were within the allowed limits

 of .1 gm/mile or 10 percent of baseline HC, 1.0 gm/mile or 15 percent of

  baseline CO and .1 gm/mile or 10 percent of baseline NOx as specified in the

  "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On and Modified Parts."   Based on the test |

  results, the staff concludes that the installation of the 460 EFI Header System

 did not have an adverse effect on exhaust emissions of the affected vehicles.

 The Turbo Shop, Inc. submitted all the required information and fulfilled the

 requirements for exemption.


duty Ford vehicles powered by a fuel—injected 7.5 liter (460 CID) engine.        The

staff also recommends that Executive Order D—180—10 be issued.




IV.    DEVICE DESCRIPIION

       The 460 EFI Header System is designed for installation on 1987—91 heavy—

duty Ford vehicles powered by a 7.5 liter (460 CI1D) fuel injected engine.       The

460 EFI Header System consists of exhaust manifolds and pre—catalyst piping.

As with the orignial equipment manu%acturer‘s (OEM) exhaust system, the

function of Turbo Shop‘s 460 EFI header system is to route exhaust gases from

the two exhaust manifolds of the engine into a common pipe which then feeds to

the catalytic converter.     Each cylinder has a 1.75" diameter tube that combines

with the adjacent tube into a 2" diameter tube.     On each side of the engine,

these two 2" tubes combine into a 2.25" diameter tube.     Finally all the exhaust

 gases are then routed into a 3" tube which feeds into the pre—catalyst piping.

 The installation instructions are shown in Appendix A.

        The purpose of The Turbo Shop exhaust system is to enhance the exhaust

 flow through the use of steel tubing with mandrel type bending methods used.

 The manufacturer claims, use of mandrel—type bending method prevents the tubing

 fromkbeing crushed or reduced in size during the bending of the tubing, thereby

 allowing the engine to work more efficiently.

        The system operates in conjunction with the OEM computer controlled

 electronic port fuel injection and emission control systems already certified>

 with the stock engine.     Installation of Turbo Shop‘s exhaust system does not

 alter the OEM location of the oxygen sensor and the catalyst.     The tune—up

 specifications also remain the same.
