thats an awesome idea, but i think there should be a bit more on the engine type, like displacement and cylinder arangement, ex. Opel 1.9L I-4

Due to the availability of the BMW IRS verse the rarity of teh Impulse, I too am looking at the BMW IRS for my project now.GoinManta said:Rear end: 1985 Isuzu Impulse w/ 3.90 gears
stock, its something like 140hp & 175tq at the wheels, i'll be doing a few things to it like converting from distributor to electronic ignition with a powerful coil, megasquirt & spark ecu, bigger injectors, a better intercooler, comressor side of the turbo will be from a 2.3L thunderbird, boost around 18psi eventually, not that much at first, and a 2.5" turbo back exhaust so it will be more like 230+ hp and 300+tq to the wheels when i take it to full boost. i have a buddy with an '89 probe gt, he has basically those mods, minus the electronic ignition, megasquirt, different intercooler, and he has a cat in his exhaust, he dyno'd 227hp & 302tq at 18psi... not bad for a car he has $2000 sunk into, including purchase, lolGoinManta said:We will have to compare notes on the IRS..
