Pursuant to the authority vested in the undersigned by Sections 39515 and

IT IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:    That the installation of the turbocharger
kit number 28—0000—3 manufactured by BAE, of 3032 Kashiwa Street,
Torrance, California 90505, has been found not to reduce the
effectiveness of required motor vehicle pollution control devices and,
therefore, is exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the
Vehicle Code for 1981 and 1982 model year Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher,
Jetta, Scirocco, Pick—Up Truck, and Audi 4000 models having a 105 cubic
inch displacement four—cylinder gasoline engine.

This Executive Order is valid provided that installation instructions for
this device will not recommend tuning the vehicle to specifications
different from those submitted by the device manufacturer.

Changes made to the design or operating conditions of the device, as
exempted by the Air Resources Board, that adversely affect the
performance of a vehicle‘s pollution control system shall invalidate this
Executive Order.

Marketing of this device using an identification other than that shown in
this Executive Order or marketing of this device for an application other
than those listed in this Executive Order shall be prohibited unless
prior approval is obtained from the Air Resources Board.  Exemption of a
kit shall not be construed as an exemption to sell, offer for sale, or
advertise any component of a kit as an individual device.

This Executive Order does not constitute any opinion as to the effect
that the use of this device may have on any warranty either expressed or
implied by the vehicle manufacturer.

THIS EXECUTIVE ORDER DOES NOT CONSTITUTE A CERTIFICATION, ACCREDITATION,
APPROVAL, OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ENDORSEMENT By THE AIR RESOURCES BOARD OF
ANY CLAIMS OF THE APPLICANT CONCERNING ANTI—POLLUTION BENEFITS OR ANY
ALLEGED BENEFITS OF THE BAE TURBOCHARGER KIT NO. 28—0000—3.

No claim of any kind, such as "Approved by Air Resources Board", may be
made with respect to the action taken herein in any advertising or other

    Evaluation of the BAE Turbocharger Kit No. 28—0000—3 for Compliance With the
    Requirements of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code


    I.    INTRODUCTION

          BAE, of 3032 Kashiwa Street, Torrance, California, 90505, has requested

    by letter dated November 4, 1981 an update to the existing Air Resources

    Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—97—8.      The applicant requested that the

    exemption from the prohibitions of the Vehicle Code (V.C.) Section 27156 for
    their add—on turbocharger kit number 28—0000—3 be updated to include the 1982

    Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, Scirocco, Pick—Up Truck, and Audi 4000

    models having a 105 cubic inch displacement (CID) four—cylinder gasoline

    engine.

‘   II.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION/EVALUATION
          The detailed description of the turbocharger kit and Air Resources

    Board‘s evaluation procedure for compliance with the requirements of V.C.

    Section 27156, is referred to the ARB Staff Report titled "Evaluation of the

    BAE Turbocharger Kit No. 28—0000—3 for Compliance With the Requirements of

    Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code" dated October 9, 1981.

    III. DISCUSSION

          The original exemption, E.0. No. D—97—8, was granted for 1981 Volkswagen

    and Audi vehicles in reference.

          The applicant is making available their turbocharger kit number 28—0000—3

    to the 1982 model year Volkswagen and Audi vehicle models in reference.

          In response to the applicant‘s request, the staff compared the engine

    design of both, 1981 and 1982, model year vehicles.     In particular, the

.   effects, if any, the turbocharger kit would have on the vehicle‘s exhaust


emissions.   Since the engines installed in the 1982 model vehicles are carry—

over {identical engine design) from the 1981 model vehicles, the staff is of

the opinion that the installation of the same add—on turbocharger kit on the

1982 vehicles will have the same degree of performance/emissions impact as in

the 1981 vehicles.    Because test data on a 1981 Volkswagen, Pick—Up Truck

showed that the vehicle‘s emissions were not adversely affected when the

turbocharger kit was installed, the kit will have no adverse effect on the

1982 models either.    No additional testing was required or performed.

IV.    CONCLUSION AND_RECOMMENDATION

      Based on the above, the staff concludes that the BAE add—on turbocharger

kit number 28—0000—3 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the 1982

model year Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, Scirocco, Pick—Up Truck, and

Audi 4000 model vehicles powered by a 105 CID four—cylinder gasoline engine.

The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—8 be updated to include the

1982 Volkswagen and Audi vehicles in reference.    The staff, therefore,

recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—10 be adopted.
