        CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222, TITLE 13, OF THE
                          CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS




 T.       INTRODUCTION
          New Dimensions, Inc. of 2240 De La Cruz Blvd, Santa Clara, California

 95050 has applied for an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of

 the C;lifornia Vehicle Code for the.New Dimensions,     Inc.‘s Stage I and Stage II

 turbocharger kits.      The turbocharger kits are designed for installation on

 1985—1987 model—year Volkswagen Golf GTI and Jetta GLI vehicles.

          New Dimensions, Inc. has submitted data from testing on a 1956

 Volkswagen Jetta CLI vehicle at Milton Rb& Company, ‘Orange, California.      The

 Air Resources Board (ARB) also conducted a confirmatory test at the Haagen—Smit

 Laboratory.




 II.      CoNCLUSITONS

          Based on the results from emission tests performéd at Milton Roy

 Laboratory and confirmatory tests at the ARB‘s Haagen—Smit Laboratory

on a Volkswagenkdetta GLI ;ehicle, the staff concludes that New Dimensions,

" Inc.‘s Stage I and Stage II turbocharger kits will not adversely affect exhaust

 emissions from vehicles for which an exemption is>requested.



 III.    RECOMMENDATION

         The staff recommends that New Dimensions, inc. be granted an exemption

 for their Stage I and Stage II turbocharger kits for installation on 1985—1987

model—year Volkswagen Golf GTI and Jetta GLI vehicles.      The staff also

recommends that Executive Order D—316 be issued.

                                          —1—


IV.     DEVICE DESCRIPTION

        The New Dimensions, Inc.‘s Stage I and Stage II turbocharger kits are

designed for installation on 1985—1987 model—year Volkswagen Golf GTI and Jefita

GLI vehicles.     The Stage I and Stage II turbocharger kits both consist of a

Warner—IsHI‘RHBB turbocharger with an area ratio of 0.59, boost gauge,       exhaust

manifold, exhaust muffler system      and miscellaneous fittings.    In addition, the

Stage II turbocharger kit also includes an intercooler, fuel injector and

micro—fueler.

           The purpose $f the Ngw Diménsions, Inc.‘s Stage I and Stage II

turbochargers is to increase the power output of the engine by compressing the

intake charge to above atmospheric pressure, thereby, increase the volumetric

efficiency of the engine.b The increased pressure cause; a greater charge

density, allowing more air into the chamber for combustion.         Sincg the air flow

is increased, more fuel is needed to mainta;n proper air—fuel ratios.        The New

Dimensions, Inc. Stage II turbocharger includes an additional fuel injector to

‘provide additional fuel needed during boost.     The additional fuel injector is

mounted in the throttle—body inlet casting and is controlled by the micro—

fueler..     Lubrication of the turbocharger is provided by engine oil.     The

lubricating oil is then routed back to the'engine oil pan through én oil drain

line.      No emission control components are removed during turbocharger kit

installation.



v.         TURBOCHARGER KIT SYSTEM EVALUATION AND DISCUSSION

           A 1986 Volkswagen Jetta GLI vehicle equipped with a 1.8 liter fuel

injected gasoline engine was used for the evaluation of the Stage I and Stage

II turbocharger kits.     The dynamometer inertia weight and loading were 2625—lbs

and 7.0—hp respectively.                 —2—


<p




              Emission tests conducted by Milton Roy Company for New Dimensions, Inc.

     consisted of one Cold—Start CVS—75 emission test in the the modified (Stage II

     turbocharger kit installed) configuration.                Confirmatory tests were conducted

     at the ARB‘s Haagen—Smit Laboratory,.           A summary of the test results is shown

     below:

              Results from the emission tests conducted at Milton Roy Laboratory and

     the confirmatory tests conducted at Haagen—Smit Laboratory show the vehicle

     emissions with the New Dimensions, Inc.‘s Stage II turbocharger kit installed

     were within the applicéble emission standards.               Based on the test results,   the

     staff concludes that the installation of New Dimensions, Inc.‘s turbocharger

     kits did not have an aéverse effect on exhaust emissions of the affectad

     vehicles.   New Dimensiofis, Inc. submitted all the required information and

     fulfilled the requirements for exemption.
