                                   SUMMARY


       Schaumburg Audi of 3709 Lindenwood Lane, Glenview, I1linois 60025, has

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

California Vehicle Code (VC) for the PTB Throttle Body.   The PTB Throttle Body

is designed for installation on 1990 to 1994 Audis equipped with a 2.8L V6

gasoline engine.

       Schaumburg Audi submitted a completed application and all other required

information, as well as emissions test data performed at the AutoResearch

Laboratories, Incorporated in Harvey, Illinois which shows that their PTB

Throttle Body does not have any adverse effect on emissions.

       Based on the submitted information, the staff concludes that the PTB

Throttle Body will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for

which an exemption is requested.

       The staff recommends that Schaumburg Audi be granted an exemption as

requested and that Executive Order D—367 be issued.

                           CALIFORNIA CODE OF REGULATIONS

I.     INTRODUCTION

       Schaumburg Audi of 3709 Lindenwood Lane, Glenview, Illincis 60025, has

applied for an éxemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the

California Vehicle Code (VC) for their PTB Throttle Body.      The PTB Throttle

Body is designed for installation on 1990 to 1994 Audis equipped with a 2.8L V6

gasoline engine.

       Schaumburg Audi submitted a completed application and other required

information, as well as emissions test data performed at the AutoResearch

Laboratories, Incorporated in Harvey, Illinois which shows that their PTB

Throttle Body does not have any adverse effect on emissions.

II.    CONCLUSIONS
       Based on the submitted information, the staff concludes that the PTB

Throttle Body will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from vehicles for

which an exemption is requested.

III.   RECOMMENDATION
       The staff recommends that Schaumburg Audi be granted an exemption for

their PTB Throttle Body for installation on 1990 to 1994 Audis equipped with a

2.8L V6 gasoline engine.     The staff also recommends that Executive Order D—367

be issued.

IV.    PTB THROTTLE BODY DESCRIPTION
       The PTB Throttle Body is specifically designed for installation on 1990

to 1994 Audis equipped with a 2.8L V6 gasoline engine.       The throttle body

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

computer controlled fuel injection system already certified with the stock
                                         —1—


engine.        The purpose of using the PTB Throttle Body is to enhance performance

at part throttle operation.        This is accomplished by machining the primary

barre1 to remove excess metal before the throttle plate.                 This changes the

primary diameter from 0.94" to 1.37".        No changes are made to the stock tune—up

specifications, and Schaumburg Audi does not recommend the use of high octane

fuel when using their product.        Schaumburg Audi has not authorized any other

dealer or manufacturer to conduct its porting and polishing of the OEM throttle

body.

          v.     DISCUSSION OF THE PTB THROTTLE BODY

          Schaumburg Audi has requested that the PTB Throttle Body be exempted for

1990 to 1994 Audis equipped with a 2.8L V6 engine.             A 1994 Audi 100$ equipped

with the PTB Throttle Body was used as the test vehicle.                 Schaumburg Audi

performed testing at AutoResearch Laboratories, Incorporated (ALI) in Harvey,

Illinois to be compared against the vehicle‘s emission standards.

          The results of the exhaust emissions test performed at ALI are shown in

Table 1.

                                                  (grams/mile)

          Deterior;tion factor (D.F.)      1.076       1.029      1.02

          D.F. adjusted                    0.17        1.16      0.133


      The CVS—75 emissions test results at ALI indicate that the HC, CO and
NOx emissions of the vehicle, with the PTB Throttle Body installed, are below

the emission standards set for that engine family.   The Air Resources Board did

not conduct confirmatory testing to validate the emission test results

submitted by Schaumburg Audi.

       Schaumburg Audi submitted all of the required information and fulfilled

the requirements for an exemption.   The test results show that the PTB Throttle

Body meets the requirements for exemption.
