This is a 1987 Isuzu Impulse 2.0 liter turbo, manual transmission, rear wheel drive, 2 door hatchback. I bought this car a couple of years ago and have made extensive repairs and mods. Unfortunately for me this has become a neverending project. My loss could be your gain. Nearly $4000 in mods include:

15" Rota Slipstreams (7.5" wide & only 12.6 lbs each)
225/50 R15 Falken Ziex 512
Turbo upgraded by Majestic for roughly double factory output
3" Exhaust w/High Flow foil type cat
AEM Wideband Air/Fuel Ratio Gauge
Autometer Carbon Fiber Boost Gauge
HD Transmission, Flywheel, & Clutch from a 93 Isuzu Pickup
7" JVC touchscreen DVD Headunit
5 Channel 680 watt Hifonics Amp
5 1/4" Hifonics Components Front & Rear
AEM Fuel Pressure Regulator
Diamond Plate added to all four seat backs

Now the problems. Engine compression is 140, 111, 116, 109 front to rear(should be 150-160). The short block has less than 5,000 since rebuild by Cooks. May just need rings or may need rebuilt. Interior pieces that were dressed in black twill have faded. Could be redyed. The carpet was restored using a 5 day soak and has held its color perfectly. The fuel tank needs replaced. I have a replacement tank that should be treated with por-15 prior to installation. Fuel system problems may have caused the engine problems.

I have simply lost interest in this project and wanted to see what kinda of trades I might get before parting this out. This car has an all new cooling system except the radiator which was serviced by Siegerts. Fully rebuilt front end including poly bushings, bearings, ball joints, and rebuilt rack & pinion. Lots of new & rebuilt parts, too much to list, and receipts to back it up.

Possible trades include, 350 firebird or pickup, 2-door cadillac, chevy, honda, jeep, or toyota. No junk please! This car is not junk, just not working for me and much like a non-working relationship sometimes its better to make a fresh start. Please include vehicle year, make, model, mileage, and condition with any offers. The more information you provide the more likely you are to recieve a response.

Fuel problems? I doubt it.
Valves - but why not confirm with the compression test?

I'll bet they forgot the soap & water.
IZU069 - ISUZU means a lot to me.
