                                    SUMMARY




      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—11.     The applicant requested that their add—on
turbocharger kit No. 32—0000—1 be also exempted from the prohibitions in

Vehicle Code (V.C.) Section 27156 for the 1983 model—year YVolkswagen
Rabbtt, Dasher, Jetta, and pick—up truck models powered by a 97 cubic

inch displacement (CID) four—cylinder diesel engine.

      Based on the previous comparative exhaust emisston tests performed

on a 1981 model—year Volkswagen pick—up truck and the fact that the
engines used in the 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and pick—up

truck models 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 VoTkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and

pick—up truck mode!s.

      The staff recommends that BAE Turbosystems be granted their update

request to include the 1983 model—year Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta,

and pick—up truck models in the exemption of their add—on turbocharger
kit No. 32—0000—1.    The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—18

be adopted.

EVALUATION OF THE BAE TURBOCHARGER KIT NO. 32—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—11.     The applicant requested that their add—on

turbocharger kit No. 32—0000—1 be also exempted from the prohibitions in

Vehicle Code {V.C.) Section 27156 for the 1983 model—year Volkswagen
Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and pick—up truck models powered by a 97 CID

four—cylinder diesel engine.

II.    CONCLUSION
       Based on the previous comparative exhaust emission tests performed

on a 1981 model—year Volkswagen pick—up truck and the fact that the

engines used in the 1983 Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and pick—up

truck mode?ls 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 Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and

pick—up truck models.

III.   RECOMMENDATIONS

       The staff recommends that BAE Turbosystems be granted their update

request to include the 1983 model—year Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta,

and pick—up truck models in the exemption of their add—on turbocharger
kit No. 32—0000—1.     The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—18

be adopted.


IV.     TURBOCHARGER KIT DESCRIPTION AND OPERATION

        The purpose of turbocharging ts to increase the volumetric

efficiency of an engine.    The major components of the BAE kit are a RaJay

turbocharger with an A/R ratio of 0.25, replacement intake and exhaust

manifolds, and an air filter.     The components are packaged with

installation hardware and instructions and sold as a kit.

        The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) exhaust manifold is

replaced by a BAE manifold.     The turbine inlet of the turbocharger mounts

directly under the replacement exhaust manifold.     The turbine, driven by

exhaust gases, is Tinked to the compressor by a solid shaft.     Intake air

is drawn through the BAE canister—type air filter and compressed by the

compressor.    Compressed air is then routed to the BAE replacement intake
manifold.

        Maxtmum posttive manifold pressure (boost) is lTimited to 7 psig by

the size of (and exhaust flow through) the turbine housing.     No wastegate
or other active boost limiting device is used.

        The coo]fng of the turbocharger is achieved by ram air, by forced

air flow from a cooling fan, and by Tubricating ofl passing through the

unft.    The ofl is delivered from a hole tapped at the oil filter adaptor

to the turbocharger bearing housing through a stainless steel braided

line and then returned to the engine of1 pan.

        Optional accessories that can be connected to the kit include

exhaust pyrometer to measure engine exhaust temperature at the turbine

inlet and an intake manifold pressure (boost) gauge.

        No modifications to the OEM tune—up specifications are required or

permitted when the turbocharger kit is installed.


V.    DI SCUSSION

      BAE turbocharger kit No. 32—0000—1 applicable to 1981 and 1982

model—year Volkswagen Rabbit, Dasher, Jetta, and pick—up truck models

powered by a 97 CID four—cylinder diesel engine was granted an exemnption

(E.0. No. D—97—11) on December 9, 1981.    The exemptton 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 CVS—75 and

Highway Fuel Economy tests at normal dynamometer road loading.

      The applicant is making available kit No. 32—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 models 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 either.     No additional

testing was required or performed.
