      BAE Turbosystems of 3032 Kashiwa Street, Torrance, CA 90505, has

requested an update to the existing Air Resources Board‘s Executive Order

{(E.0.) No. D—97—9.   The applicant requested that their add—on

turbocharger kit No. 2—0000—1 be also exempted from the prohibitions in

Vehicle Code (V.C.) Section 27156 for the 1983 model—year BMW 3201 model

vehicles powered by a four—cylTinder gasoline engine.

      Based on the previous comparative exhaust emissions tests performed

on a 1981 model—year BMW 3201 model and the fact that the engines used in

the 1983 model—year BMW 3201 mode] vehicles are carry—overs {identical

engine design) from the 1981 and 1982 models, the staff concludes that

the kit will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the 1983 BMW

3201 models.

      The staff recommends that BAE Turbosystems be granted their update

request to include the 1983 modeT—year BMW 3201 vehicles in the exemption

of their add—on turbocharger kit No. 2—0000—1.   The staff recommends that

Executive Order No. D—97—17 be adopted.

EVALUATION OF THE BAE TURBOCHARGER KIT NO. 2—0000—1 FOR EXEMPTION FROM THE
PROHIBITIONS IN VEHICLE CODE SECTION 27156 IN ACCORDANCE WITH SECTION 2222,
TITLE 13 OF THE CALIFORNIA ADMINISTRATIVE CODE.



I.     INTRODUCTION

       BAE Turbosystems of 3032 Kashiwa Street, Torrance, CA 90505, has

requested an update to the existing Air Resources Board‘s Executive Order

(E.0.) No. D—97—9.      The applicant requested that their add—on

turbocharger kit No. 2—0000—1 be also exempted from the prohibitions in

Vehicle Code (¥.C.) Section 27156 for the 1983 model—year BMW 3201 model
vehicles powered by a four—cylinder gasoline engine.

II.    CONCLUSION

       Based on the previous comparative exhaust emissions tests performed

on a 1981 model—year BMW 3201 model and the fact that the engines used in

the 1983 model—year BMW 3201 model vehicles are carry—overs {identical

engine design) from the 1981 and 1982 models, the staff concludes that

the kit will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the 1983 BMW
3201 models.

III.   RECOMMENDATION

       The staff recommends that BAE Turbosystems be granted their update

request to include the 1983 model—year BMW 3201 model vehicles in the

exemption of their add—on turbocharger kit No. 2—0000—1.     The staff

recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—17 be adopted.


IV.   TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

      The purpose of turbocharging is to increase the volumetric

efficiency of an engine.   The major components of the BAE turbocharger

kit are a RaJay turbocharger model 300F with an A/R ratio of 0.4, a

replacement exhaust manifold, a replacement intake plenum, an intake and

a discharge pipe, and a positive manifold pressure control wastegate.

The components are packaged with installation hardware and instructions

and sold as a kit (see Figure in appendix}.
      The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) exhaust manifold is

replaced by a BAE manifold.     The turbine inlet mounts directly to the

replacement exhaust manifold.    The turbine, driven by exhaust gases, is

linked to the compressor by a solid shaft.     Intake air from the air box,

of the K—Jetronic System, is routed through the intake pipe to the

compressor.   Compressed air is then piped to the BAE replacement intake

plenum through the discharge pipe.
      The lubrication of the turbocharger is provided by a steel braided

lTine from the filtered engine oil galley to the turbocharger bearing
housing.   Oil from the turbocharger is returned to the oi pan.

      Maximum positive manifold pressure (boost) is lTimited to 5 psig by

a wastegate mounted on the exhaust manifold.    The wastegate is preset to

dump excess exhaust gases when intake manifold pressure reaches 5 psig,

thus bypassing the turbine.


       No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required

when the turbocharger kit is installed except for disconnecting the

ignition distributor vacuum advance unit and plugging it at the throttle

body with a plug supplied by BAE.    All other OEM emission controls remain

~intact.
V.     DISCUSSION

       BAE turbocharger kit No. 2—0000—1 applicable to 1980 through 1982

model—year BMW 3201 mode?! vehicles powered by a four—cylinder gasoline

engine was granted an exemption (E.0. No. D—97—9) on December 3, 1981.

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

vehicle‘s pollution control system was not reduced.    Evaluation consisted

of comparative ({without and with the kit installed on a test vehicle)

chassis dynamometer CYS—75 and HFET tests at normal dynamometer road

Toading.

       The applicant is making available kit No. 2—0000—1 for the 1983

models also.   The applicant has requested that the exemption be updated

to include the 1983 models.
       In response to the request, the staff compared the engine design of

1981, 1982, and 1983 model—years.    Since the engines in the 1983 models

are identically designed as the 1981 and 1982 engines, the staff is of

the opinion that the 1983 vehicles will have the same degree of

performance/emissions impact as in the 1981 and 1982 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 1983 models efther.    No additional

testing was required or performed.
