                                  Staff Report

                                December 4, 1981


                      Evaluation of the BAE Turbocharger
                     Kit No. 32—0000—1 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—3.     The applicant has requested that

the exemption from the prohibitions of the Vehicle Code (V.C.) Section 27156

for their add—on Turbocharger Kit No. 32—0000—1 be updated to include the 1982

Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and Pick Up Truck models having a 97 cubic

inch displacement (CID) four—cylinder diesel engine.

II.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION/EVALUATION

      The detailed descrifition of the turbocharger kit and the 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. 32—0000—1 for Compliance with the Requirements of

Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code", dated July 20, 1981.

III. DISCUSSION

      E.0. No. D—97—3 was granted for 1981 model year Volkswagen Rabbit,

Dasher, Jetta, and Pick Up Truck models having a 97 CID four—cylinder diesel


engine.

      The applicant is making available the BAE Turbocharger Kit No. 32—0000—1

to the 1982 Volkswagen models.     The applicant has requested that the exemption

be updated to include the 1982 models.

      In response to the request, the staff compared the Volkswagen engine

design of both 1981 and 1982 model years.       In particular, the effects, if any,

the turbocharger kit would have on the vehicle‘s exhaust emissions.       Since the

engines in the 1982 models are identically designed as the 1981 engines, the

staff is of the opinion that the 1982 vehicles will have the same degree of

performance/emissions impact as in the 1981 models.       Because the test data on

a 1981 test vehicle 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 RECOMMENDATIONS
      Based on the above, the staff concludes that the BAE add—on Turbocharger

Kit No. 32—0000—1 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the 1982

Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and Pick Up Truck models powered by a 97 CID

four—cylinder diesel engine.     The staff recommends that Executive Order

No. D—97—3 be updated to include the 1982 models.      The staff, therefore,

recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—11 be adopted.
