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

     Executive Order D—180—3 which exempts their turbocharger kit model 6.9L/7.3L

     from the prohibitions of Vehicle Code Section 27156.    The existing exemption

     applies to 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 vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar International

     heavy—duty diesel engine.   The update is requested to include the 1991

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

     International heavy—duty diesel engine.

            Because Turbo Shop, Inc. was granted an exemption for 1988—1990 modei

     year 7.3L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel vehicles and the 1991

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

     model years, the staff concludes that Turbo Shop, Inc.‘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.

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

     requested and that Executive Order D—180—7 be issued.

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




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—3, 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—1990 model year Ford Motor Company vehicles

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

update is requested to include the 1991 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 exemption for the 1988—1990 model

year 7.3L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engines and the 1991

model 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 adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles

for which the exemption update is requested.

III.     co    DATIONS

       The staff recommends that The Turbo Shop be granted an update as

requested and that Executive Order D—180—7 be issued.

IV.     URBOCHARGER KIT   DESCRIPTION

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

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

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


charge density to enter 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 T04B25;

       3.   Roto—Master model R—11;

            Roto—Master mode] V—2;
       m




            Roto—Master model S—4;
       g




            AiResearch model H—3.
       o_




The major components of the system include a turbocharger, custom intake

adapters, 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 OEM exhaust system with a 3" diameter

exhaust system.   The positive crankcase ventilation (PCY) 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

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

a 6.9L Navistar International heavy—duty diesel engine and 1988—1991 mode!l

year Ford Motor Company vehicles powered by a 7.3L Navistar International

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

kit is necessary for the installation of 1991 model year applicable

vehicles.    Certification documents show that the 1991 model year 7.3L

Navistar International diesel engine is carried over from the previous mode]

years.    Based on these considerations the staff concludes that no additional

testing is required.
