%




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

    Executive Order D—97—20 which exempts the Turbocharger Kit number 60—

    0002/4 HD from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.      The existing

    exemption applies to 1983 model year General Motors Corporation (GMC) heavy—

    duty vehicles (GVW over 8500 lbs.) powered by a 6.2L GMC heavy—duty diesel

    engine.     The update is requested to reflect a change of ownership from BAE

    Turbosystems to the Turbo Shop, Inc. and to include 1984 through 1990 mode!

    year GMC vehicles powered by a 6.2L heavy—duty diesel engine.

              Because the Turbocharger Kit number 60—0002/4 HD which was granted an

    exemption for the 1983 model year 6.2L GMC heavy—duty vehicles remain

    unchanged and the 6.2L heavy—duty engines used on the 1984 through 1990

    model year GMC vehicles are carried—over from the 1983 model year, the staff

    concludes that the turbocharger kit will not have an adverse effect on

    exhaust emissions from vehicles for which the exemption update has been

    requested.

              The staff recommends The Turbo Shop, Inc. be granted an update as

    requested and that Executive Order D—180—6 be issued.

EVALUATION OF THE TURBO SHOP, INC.‘S ADD—ON TURBOCHARGER KIT FOR EXEMPTION
  FROM THE PROHIBITIONS IN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH
      SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE.




I.       INTRODUCTION

        BAE Turbosystems of 3032 Kashiwa Street, Torrance, CA 90505 has

received an exemption from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle

Code under Executive Order D—97—20 for its Turbocharger Kit model 60—0002/4

HD.    Under this exemption, the device can be used on 1983 model year 6.2L

GMC heavy—duty diesel engines.    The Turbo Shop, Inc. (Turbo Shop) of 940

West Manchester, Inglewood, CA 90301, acquired the rights to Turbocharger

Kit model 60—0002/4 HD.   Turbo Shop has requested an update to Executive

Order D—97—20, to include 1983 through 1990 GMC heavy—duty vehicles powered

by a 6.2L GMC heavy—duty diesel engine and to reflect a change in ownership.

Turbo Shop claims no change in the design of the original unit.

II.     CONCLUSION
        Turbo Shop‘s turbocharger kit was previously granted an exemption for

the 1983 model year 6.2L GMC heavy—duty diesel engine.    Because the 1984

through 1990 6.2L GMC heavy—duty diesel engines are carried—over from the

1983 model year and the design of the turbocharger kit has not changed, the

staff concludes that turbocharger kit model 60—0002/4 HD will not adversely

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

III.    RECOMMENDATIONS
        The staff recommends that The Turbo Shop be granted an update as

requested and that Executive Order D—180—6 be issued.


IV.    TURBOCHARGER KIT    DESCRIPTION

       The purpose of a turbocharger system is to increase the volumetric

effiency of an engine by forcing more air into an engine than it would take

in under stock {non—turbocharged) OEM conditions.

       The major components of the Turbo Shop turbocharger kit number

60—0002/4 HD are a 0.96 A/R ratio Rotomaster turbocharger, an exhaust

manifold to turbocharger adaptor, intake and discharge pipes, an

exhaust crossover pipe, an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) tube and an

intake/discharge bonnet.     The components are packaged with installation

hardware and instructions and sold as a kit.

       The OEM exhaust manifold (right bank only) is replaced by the

exhaust manifold to turbocharger adaptor.     Left bank exhaust is routed by

the exhaust crossover pipe to join the exhaust manifold at the rfght bank.

The turbine inlet mounts directly to the replacement exhaust manifold.

Intake air is routed through the bonnet and the intake pipe to be compressed

by the compressor.   Compressed air is then piped back to the bonnet through

the discharge pipe for injection into the engine.

       The EGR tube is employed to reduce the formation of oxides of

nitrogen (NOx).   A 3/8" tube taps into the exhaust housing of the turbine

and recirculates exhaust gases into the compressed air intake pipe.     Flow of

exhaust gases is limited by the inside diameter of the tube.

       Maximum positive manifold pressure (boost) is limited to 6 psig by

the size of {and the exhaust flow through) the turbine housing.    No

wastegate or other active boost limiting device is used.

       The cooling of the turbocharger is achieved by direct fan air from

engine and lubricating oil from the engine passing through the unit.

       No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required, nor

permitted, when the turbocharger kit is installed.


       Optional accessories that can be connected to the kit include exhaust

pyrometer to measure engine exhaust temperature at the turbine inlet and an

intake manifold pressure (boost) guage.

v.     DISCUSSTON
       Previous evaluation and emission testing of turbocharger kit model

60—0002/4 HD showed no adverse effect on emissions of 1983 model year GMC

vehicles powered by a 6.2L GMC heavy—duty diesel engine.     The applicant

claims no modification to the original design of the kit is necessary for

installation on 1984—1990 model year GMC vehicles powered by a 6.2L GMC

heavy—duty diesel engine.    Certification documents show that the 1984

through 1990 model year 6.2L GMC diesel engines are carried—over from the

previous model year.     This finding was verified by a GMC factory

representative.     Based on these considerations the staff concludes that no

additional testing is required and that the device will have no adverse

impact on emissions of 1983 through 1990 model year GMC vehicles powered by

a 6.2L GMC heavy—duty diesel engine.
