        The Turbo Shop, Inc.   (Turbo Shop) has applied for an update to

 Executive Order D—180—1, which exempts their turbocharger kit model

 6.9L/7.3L from the prohibitions in Vehicle Code Section 27156.    The existing

 exemption applies to 1983—1987 model year Ford Motor Company vehicles

 powered by a 6.91 Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engine and 1988—

 1989 model year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar

 International heavy—duty diesel engine.    The update is requested to include

 the 1990 mode! year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar

 International heavy—duty diesel engine.

        Because Turbo Shop was granted an exemption for 1988—1989 model year

 7.3L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel vehicles and the 1990 model

 year 7.3L heavy—duty diesel engine is a carry—over from the previous model

 years, the staff conc]udes that Turbo Shop‘s add—on turbocharger kit model

~6.9L/7.3L will not have an adverse effect on exhaust émissions from veh1c1es

 for which the exemption update has been requested.

        The staff recommends that Turbo Shop be granted an update as

 requested and that Executive Order D—180—3 be issued.

      1.           INTRODUCTION

                   The Turbo Shop, Inc.   (Turbo Shop) of 940 West Manchester, Inglewood,

      CA 90301, has applied for an update to Executive Order D—180—1, which

      exempts their turbocharger kit model 6.9L/7.3L from the prohibitions in

      Vehicle Code Section 27156.         The exemption applies to   1983—1987 model year

      Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 6.9L Navistar International heavy—

      duty diesel engine and 1988—1989 model year Ford Motor Company vehicles

      powered by a 7.3L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engine.          The

      update is requested to include the 1990 model year Ford Motor Company

      vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engine.

      II.          CONCLUSTON

            .      Because Turbo Shop was: granted an exempt1on for 1988— 1989modeI year

      7.3L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engines and the 1990 mode!

      year 7.3L heavy—duty diesel engine is a carry—over from the previous model

      years, the staff concludes that Turbo Shop‘s add—on turbocharger kit model

      6.9L/7.3L will not have an adverse effect on exhaust emissions from vehicles

      for which the exemption update has been requested.

      III.         RECOMMENDATIONS

                   The staff recommends that Turbo Shop be granted an update as

      requested and that Executive Order D—180—3 be issued.

      IV.          TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION

                   The purpose of the Turbo Shop turbocharger system is to increase the

      power output of the engine by compressing the intake charge to pressures

      above that of the atmosphere.         The increase in pressure allows a greater


charge density to entér the combustion.chamber causing an increase in the

volumetric efficiency of the engine.    The maximum fuel delivery is slightly

increased (1/4 of a turn) in order to maintain proper air—fuel ratios when

the turbocharger is providing a positive manifold pressure {boost).     The

maximum positive manifold pressure is limited to 10 psig by the size of the

turbine and the compressor.    The maximum engine speed is regulated by the

original equipment manufacturer (OEM) fuel injection governor.     Therefore,

by controlling maximum engine speed, maximum turbine speed and the

corresponding boost pressure are also controlled.

       Turbo Shop offers the following six turbochargers, with 1.0 area

ratio (A/R), with their kit: .
       1.   Rajay model E—FLOW;

       2.   Schwitzer model T0O4B25;

       3.   Roto—Master model R—11;

       4.   Roto—Master mode] ¥—2;
       éf' Roté-Master fiode] S»i;

       6.   AfResearch model H—3.

The major components of the system include a 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 kit includes replacement of the air cleaner

assembly and replacement of the OFM exhaust system with a 3" diameter

exhaust system.   The positive crankcase ventilation {(PCV) valve is relocated

to allow for the turbocharger kit installation.     No other OEM emission

control components are removed, disconnected or relocated when the

turbocharger kit is installed.


V.     DISCUSSION

       Turbo Shop‘s add—on turbocharger kit model 6.9L/7.3L is designed for

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

a 6.9L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engine and 1988—1990 mode!

year Ford Motor Company vehic]és powered by a 7.3L Navistar International

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

kit is necessary for installation on 1990 model year applicable vehicles.

Certification documents show that the 1990 model year 7.3L Navistar

International diesel engine is carried over from the previous model years.

Based on these considerations the staff concludes that no additional testing

is required.
