1T IS ORDERED AND RESOLVED:   That the installation of the turbocharger
kit No. 2—0000—1 manufactured by BAE of 3032 Kashiwa Street, Torrance,
California 90505 has been found not to reduce the effectiveness of
required motor vehicle poliution control devices and, therefore, is
exempt from the prohibitions of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code for
1980 and 198] model—year BMW 3201 models having a 107 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

                            September 2, 1981

Evaluation of the BAE Turbocharger Kit No. 2—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 August 7, 1981 an update to the existing

Air Resources Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—97—4.   The applicant

requested that the exemption from the prohibitions of the Vehicle Code

(V.C.) Section 27156 for their add—on turbocharger kit number 2—0000—1

be updated to include the 1980 BMW 3201 model vehicles powered by a

107 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 thg requirements of

Y¥.C. Section 27156, is referred to the ARB Staff Report titled "Evaluation

of the BAE Turbocharger Kit Model No. 2—0000—1 for Compliance With the

Requirements of Section 27156 of the Vehicle Code" dated July 1, 1981.

III. DISCUSSION
      The original exemption, E.0. No. D—97—4, was granted for 1981 BMW

3201 vehicle models having a 107 CID four—cylinder gasoline engine.

      The applicant is making available their turbocharger kit number

2—0000—1 to the 1980 BMW 320i models.   The applicant has requested

that the 1981 exemption be updated to include the 1980 model vehicles.


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

of both model—year vehicles.   In particular, the effects, if any, the

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

engines intalled in the 1981 model vehicles are carry—over {identical

engine design) from the engines in 1980 vehicles, the staff is of the

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

the 1980 vehicles will have the same degree of performance/emissions

impact as in the 1981 vehicles.     Because test data on a 1981 BMW 3201

model showed that the vehicle‘s emissions was not adversely affected

when the turbocharger kit was installed, the kit will have no adverse

effect on the 1980 models either.     No additional emissions testing

was required or performed.

IV.   CONCLUSION AND RECOMMENDATION

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

kit number 2—0000—1 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the

1980 BMW 3201 model vehicles that are powered by a 107 CID four—cylinder

gasoline engine.   The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—4

be updated to include the 1980 BMW 3201 models.     The staff, therefore,

recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—6 be adopted.
