                                November 18, 1981


                        Evaluation of the BAE Turbocharger
                         Kit No. 2—0000—1 for Compliance
                      With the Requirements of Section 27156
                               of the Vehicle Code


I.    INTRODUECTION

      BAE, of 3032 Kashiwa Street, Torrance, California     90505, has requested

by letter dated October 12, 1981, an update to the existing Air Resources

Board‘s Executive Order (E.0.) No. D—97—6.      The applicant requested that the

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

their add—on Turbocharger Kit No. 2—0000—1 be updated to include the 1982 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 the requirements of V.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
      E.0. No. D—97—6 was granted for 1980 and 1981 BMW 3201 vehicle models

having a 107 CID four—cylinder gasoline engine.


      The applicant is making available their Turbocharger Kit No. 2—0000—1 to

the 1982 BMW 3201 models.     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 engines

installed in the 1982 model vehicles are carry—over {identical engine design)

from the engines in 1981, the staff is of the opinion that the 1982 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 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 RECOMMENDATION

      Based on the above, the staff concludes that the BAE add—on Turbocharger

Kit No. 2—0000—1 will not adversely affect exhaust emissions from the 1982 BMW

3201 model vehicles that are powered by a 107 CID four—cyli;der gasoline

engine.     The staff recommends that Executive Order No. D—97—6 be updated to

include the 1982 BMW 3201 models.     The staff, therefore, recommends that

Executive Order No. D—97—9 be adopted.
