       The staff recommends that Autotech Sport Tuning be granted an exemption
for their Hor Technologie Sport Hydro Camshaft, Autotech Sport 260 Degree
Camshaft, and the Autotech 16 Valve Intake Camshaft for the following

Volkswagen applications:   1986—88 16 valve 2.0L Sciroccos, 1985—95 8 & 16 valve

recommends that Executive Order D—375—1 be issued.


IV. °   CAMSHAFT DESCRIPTION
        The Hor Technologie Sport Hydro Camshaft, Autotech Sport 260 Degree

Camshaft, and the Autotech 16 Valve Intake Camshaft have been specifically
designed for installation on those model/model—year vehicles listed.     The

camshafts operatevin conjunction with the original equipment manufacturer (OEM)

computer controlled feedback fuel injection systems along with the emission

control systems already certified with the stock engines.     The purpose of using
the camshafts is to increase the overall engine performance by modifying the

valve characteristics, such as increasing the valve lift and duration.

        The three camshafts vary in their characteristics, each designed for

different levels of performance.     The Hor Technologie Sport Hydro Camshaft,

designed for 8 valve engines, has the following characteristics (numbers in

parentheses represent the OEM specifications):     Lift 0.449" (0.402"), Duration

270° at 0.004" lift (260° at 0.004" lift}, Intake Timing — Open at 19° BTD¢
(18° BTDC) Close at 61° ABDC (58° ABDC)}, Exhaust Timing — Open at 59° BBDC (58°
BBDC) Close at 17° ATDC (18° ATDC), and Lobe Center at 112° (110°).     The
Autotech Sport 260° Camshaft, designed for 8 valve engines, has the following

characteristics (numbers in parentheses represent the OEM specifications):

Lift 0.420" (0.402"), Duration 260° at 0.004" lTift (260° at 0.004" lift),
Intake Timing — Open at 20° BTDC (18° BTDC) Close at 60° ABDC (58° ABDC),
Exhaust Timing — Open at 60° BBDC (58° BBDC) Close at 20° ATDC (18" ATDC), and
Lobe Center at 110° (110°).    The Autotech 16 Vaive Intake Camshaft, designed

for 16 valive engines, has the following characteristics (numbérs in parentheses
represent the OEM specifications):     Lift 0.378" (0.355"), Duration 260° at
0.004" 1ift‘(256° at 0.004" lift), Intake Timing — Open at 13° BTD¢ (8° BTDC)
Close at 57° ABDC (52° ABDC), and Lobe Center at 112° (112°).     The manufacturer
claims that these modifications from stock specifications allow the engines
greater volumetric efficiency.


v.        DISCUSSION OF THE CAMSHAFTS
          ‘The Autotech Sport Tuning‘s Hor Technologie Sport Hydro Camshaft,
 260 Degree Camshaft, and 16 Valve Intake Camshaft are designed for installation

 on the following Volkswagen applications:           1986—88 16 valve 2.0L Sciroccos,

 1985—95 8 & 16 valve 1.8L & 2.0L Jettas & Golfs, 1987—93 1.8L Foxes, 1990—95 16
 valve 2.0L Passat, 1990—95 1.8L Corrado, and 1988—95 1.8L & 2.0L Cabriolet.

          A 1995 Volkswagen Golf with a 2.0L fuel injected engine was selected as

 the test vehicle for the evaluation of the camshafts.           The GolTf with the 2.0L
. engine was selected due to its popularity.          It is also applicable to the Hor

 Technologie Sport Hydro camshaft, the most modified camshaft.' The

 dynamometer‘s inertia weight and horsepower settings were 3000—ibs and 6.3—hp

 respectively.     The emissions tests conducted by Automobile Club of Southern

 California for Autotech consisfed of one Cold Start CVS—75 emission test in the
 baseline configuration and one Cold Start CVS—75 emission test in the modified

 (Hor Technologie Sport Hydro Camshaft installed) configuration.           The ARB did

 not perform emissions testing to confirm the test results submitted by the

 applicant.    A summary of the test results is shown below:
                                Exhaust Emission Test Results

 Test                          Exhaust Emissions (gm/mi) .

 Mode                    HG                    cCO                  NOx
 Baseline               0.16         '        1.66                  0.13
 Device                 0.18                  1.93                  0.11
 Difference            +0.02                 +0.27                 —0.02


          Results from the emission test conducted at Automobile Club of Southern

 California show the vehicle emissions with the Hor Technologie Sport Hydro

 Camshaft installed are within the allowable increase of 10 percent or 0.1
                                             —3—


gm/mile HC, 15 percent or 1.0 gm/mile CO and 10 percent 0.1 gm/mile NOx above

the baseline as specified undér the "Procedures for Exemption of Add—On or
Modified Parts."   Therefore, based on the test results, the staff concludes

that the installation of Autotech‘s Hor Technologie Sport Hydro Camshaft, 260

Degree Camshaft, and 16 Valve Intake Camshaft will not have an adverseeffect
on 1986—88 16 valve 2.0L Sciroccos, 1985—95 8 & 16 valve 1.8L & 2.0L Jettas &

Golfs, 1987—93 1.8L Foxes, 1990—95 16 valve 2.0L Passat, 1990—95 1.8L Corrado,

and 1988—95 1.8L & 2.0L Cabriolet.
       Autotech has submitted all the required information and fulfilled the

requirements for an exemption.
