        Borla Performance Industries has submitted test data from a 1994 Dodge

 Ram T300 light duty truck equipped with a 5.2L engine tested at Environmental

 Testing Corporation, Orange, California.


II.    CONCLUSION
       Based on the results from emission testing performed at Environmental

Testing Corporation on a 1994 Dodge Ram T300 light duty truck, the staff

concludes that Borla Performance Industries‘ Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header

systems will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for which an
exemption is requested.

III.   RECOMMENDATION
       The staff recommends that Borla Performance Industries be granted an

exemption for their Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header systems for installation

on those vehicles listed above.     The staff also recommends that Executive Order
D~276—3 be issued.

IV.    DESCRIPTION OF THE BORLA EXHAUST HEADER SYSTEMS

       The Borla Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header systems are designed for

installation on Chrysler Corporation vehicles listed above. The exhaust manifold

system operates in conjunction with the original equipment manufacturer‘s {OEM)

computer controlled fuel injection system and emission control systems.

       The purpose of modifying the exhaust system of the engine is to increase

horsepower and torque throughout the R.P.M. range.     As with the original

equipment manufacturer‘s (OEM) exhaust system, Borla Performance Industries‘

Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header system, routes exhaust gases from the engine

into the catalytic converter.

       The Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header systems are manufactured using T—

304 stainless steel tubing.     The Exhaust Header systems utilize Borla‘s

proprietary V—8 engine header design, except the Exhaust Header system designed

for 4.0 liter equipped Jeep/Chrysler Corporation light duty trucks which

utilizes a tri—y design (6 into 2 into 1).    Systems include all installation

hardware and pre—catalyst tubing.


            Installation of Borla Performance Industries‘s Chryster Corporation
 Exhaust Header system does not alter the OEM location of the oxygen sensor and

 the catalyst.      The tune—up specifications also unaltered from OEM

 specifications.

 V.         DISCUSSION OF THE BORLA CHRYSLER CORPORATION EXHAUST HEADER SYSTEM

            A 1994 Dodge Ram T300 light duty truck with a 5.2L fuel injected engine

 was used for the evaluation of the Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header system

' system.     According to Borla Performance Industries‘ expected sales information,

 this test vehicle represents the most popular vehicle/engine application.             The
 dynamometer inertia weight and horsepower setting, determined as the worst case

 vehicle loading, were 5500—lbs and 19.8—hp respectively.          The emission test

 conducted by Environmental Testing Corporation for Borla Performance Industries
 consisted of one Cold CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure {FTP) in the modified

 {Exhaust Header system installed) configuration.          The ARB did not perform any

 test to confirm the test results submitted by the applicant.             A summary of the

 test results is shown below:



                                Exhaust Emission Test Results

                        On A 1994 Dodge Ram T300 Light Duty Truck

                               Exhaust Emissions (gm/mi)

                       NMHC                   [xd                 NOx
 Device                 0.16                  2.2                 0.41
 Standard               0.50        .         9.0                  1.0
 Difference            —0.34                 —6.8                 —0.59


       Results from the emission test show the vehicle emissions with the Borla
Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header system system installed did not exceed the

test vehicle‘s "New Vehicle Emission Standard."    Therefore, based on the test
results, the staff concludes that the installation of the Borla Performance
Industries‘s Chrysler Corporation Exhaust Header system will not have an adverse

effect on exhaust emissions on the vehicles which exemption is requested.

       Borla Performance Industries has submitted all the required information

and fulfilled the requirements for an exemption.
