                                     EVALUATION SUMMARY

_ Manufacturer Name: SMS Signature Cars

   Nameof Device: SM}S 296 Supercharger Kit

   Background:
           SMS Signature Cars of 2735 Wardlow Road, Corona, California 92882, has applied for
   an exemption from the prohibitions in Section 27156 of the California Vehicle Code (VC) for
   the SMS 296 Supercharger Kit designed for 2005 to 2010 model year Chrysler/Dodge
   Chalienger, Charger, 300C, and Magnum equipped with either a 5.7L or 6.1L V8 engine, and
   certified to Low Emission Vehicle II Low Emission Vehicle (LEV II LEV) or less stringent
   emission standards. The following engine test groups are excluded from this application:
 . ACRXVO5.7UPO, SCRXVO5.7UPO, 8CRXVO5.7MD0, 7CRXVO5.7MD1, 7CRXV057TMD3, and
   6CRXVO5.7MD1.

   Recommendation:
          Grant exemptlon to SMS Signature Cars as requested, and issue Executive Order
   D—686.                                                       .

   Device Description:
          The SMS 296 Supercharger Kit consists of the following main components: A SMS 296
   twin screw supercharger with a 90 mm diameter pulley, intake manifold, Chrysler MAP sensor
   with extended range to 2 Bar, bypass valve, high flow injectors, intercooler, reflashed ECM,
   and a new air cleaner housing with an open element style filter. For the 6.1L models, the —
   Intake Air Charge Temperature (IAT) Sensor is replaced with the OEM sensor used in the 5.7L
   engineto allow the same casting to mount the IAT sensor for both 6.1L and 5.7L models.
   Boost is limited to 6 pounds per square inch. The crankshaft pulley is replaced with a new
   165 mm diameter pulley. Installation does not require any modification to the stock coolant
   thermostat. Installation of the supercharger kit requires the rerouting and replacement of the
   positive crankcase ventilation hose; the new hose has a SAE30RT rating. All supplied fuel
   hoses are Avon‘s CADBAR 9000 series or metal,; and fuel and vapor line connectors supplied
   with the kit are OEM — equivalent parts.

  — Discussion/Basis for the Recommendation:
           To demonstrate the emissions impact of the SMS 296 Supercharger Kit, SMS Signature
    Cars conducted emissions testing on a 2009 model year 5.7L Dodge Challenger (test group
    9CRXVO5.71PO) modified with the SMS 296 Supercharger Kit. Testing was conducted at
    California Environmental Engineering (CEE), located in Santa Ana, California; and consisted of
    two Cold—Start CVS—75 Federal Test Procedure (FTP), one Supplemental Federal Test
    Procedure (SFTP) test cycle and an examination of the OBD II system. Test results showed
    that the emission levels, with the supercharger kit installed, met the applicable emission
    standards and the supercharger kit did not affect OBD II system operation. . Results of testlng
   conducted at CEE are shown below (in grams per mile).

Confirmatory testing was done at ARB‘s Haagen—Smit Laboratory. Results are shown below
(in grams per mile).

Emissions data generated during confirmatory testing showed wide deviations in NMOG, CO,
and NOx values. Staff cannot ascertain if the wide range of emissions data were due to
driving inconsistencies with the vehicle‘s six—speed manual transmission, unstable emission
characteristic of the modified vehicle or laboratory equipment calibration. To reduce testing
time, staff informed SMS Signature Cars that it may conduct testing at a different
independent emissions laboratory in lieu of confirmatory testing at ARB. Hence, additional
data was submitted by SMS Signature Cars from testing performed at Quantum
Technologies, located in Lake Forest, California. Results are shown below (in grams per
mile).

The emission test results in the modified configuration at Quantum were either at or
below the applicable certification standards. Examination of the OBD II system showed
the SMS 296 Supercharger Kit did not affect OBD II system operation. A similar effect on
vehicle emissions and OBD II monitoring is expected with the installation of the SMS 296
Supercharger Kit on the other vehicles listed in this Executive Order.

SMS Signature Cars‘s SMS 296 Supercharger Kit meets the criteria for exempting general
criteria parts for those vehicles listed in the Executive Order.

At CEE: NMOG and HCHO were calculated using the following conversion factors:
NMOG/NMHC=1.04 and HCHO/NMHC= 0.02.. Measured values were, NMHC 0.063, 0.050,
CO 1.746, 1.336, NOx 0.012, 0.027. 50K additive deterioration factors (dfs) used were
NMOG 0.0052, CO 0.10, NOx 0.007, and HCHO 0.0. Vehicle test weight and horsepower
target coefficients were, 4500 Ibs. and 44.35, 0.4781, 0.02005 respectively. Max Boost
measured at 5.41 psi.

At Quantum: NMOG and HCHO were calculated using the following conversion factors:
NMOG/NMHC=1.04 and HCHO/NMHC= 0.02.. Measured values were, NMHC 0.067, CO
1.33, NOx 0.022. 50K additive deterioration factors (dfs) used were NMOG 0.0052, CO 0.10,
NOx 0.007, and HCHO 0.0. Vehicle test weight and horsepower target coefficients were,
4500 lbs. and 44.35, 0.4781, 0.02005 respectively. Max Boost measured at 5.8 psi.

* California Environmental Engineering uses a CVS measurement system which requires two
CVS—75 FTP tests to show emissions consistency on very low emitting vehicles. Quantum
Technologies uses a Bag Mini Diluter (BMD) measurement system, designed to address the
testing of Low Emission Vehicle II (LEV I1) emissions by using a smaller dilution ratio
compared to a CVS system. The BMD bag concentrations are higher for a more precise
measurement on emissions on low emitting LEV II vehicles.
