                            February 19, 1982

Evaluation of the BAE Turbocharger Kit No. 3—0012 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—7.      The applicant requested that

their add—on turbocharger kit, kit number 3—0012, be exempted from the

prohibitions of Vehicle Code (V.C.) Section 27156 for the 1982 BMW 6331

and 7331 model vehicles powered by a 195.9 cubic inch displacement (CID)

six—cylinder gasoline engine.

II.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION
      The detailed description of the turbocharger kit is given in the ARB

Staff Report titled "Evaluation of the BAE Turbocharger Kit No. 3—0000W!1

for Compliance with the Requirements of Section 27156 of the Vehicle

Code", dated October 7, 1981.

III. DISCUSSION
      BAE turbocharger kit number 3—0000W1 applicable to 1980 and 1981

model—years BMW 6331 and 733i models powered by a 195.9 CID gasoline

engine was granted an exemption (E.0. No. D—97—7) on October 7, 1981.

The exemption was granted on the basis that the effectiveness of the

vehicle‘s pollution control system was not reduced.


       The applicant is making available an add—on turbocharger kit for

the 1982 models.       The kit for the 1982 models, kit number 3—0012, has

identical components as kit number 3—0000W1 except for the discharger

pipe (pipe for routing intake air from the turbocharger compressor

outlet into the intake plenum).        Although the discharge pipes are

bent differently, to accomodate the engine compartment on the newer

vehicles, the two kits are identical in operation and performance.

The applicant has requested that the exemption be updated to include

the 1982 model vehicles.

       In response to the request, the staff compared the BMW engine design

of both (1981 and 1982) model—years.         In particular, the effects, if

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

the staff noticed that the 1982 engines are designed with a significantly

higher nominal compression ratio (8.8:1 compared to 8.0:1), additional

emissions testing was requested to assure that the kit will not adversely

affect exhaust emissions.

       The applicant performed comparative emissions tests on a 1982 BMW

7331 vehicle.     The emissions test data submitted by the applicant are

as follows:
