Would there be any interest? In realizing what I want to do with my NX and talking with Cadle and Kojima it seems that I want to go with a stage I FMAX kit on the NX. So I would be selling my turbo anyways. The car currently has stock exhaust back on it, but that's the only power adder thing I've sold. If I upped the price $1k to cover the whole turbo system (we could deal with the suspension, short shifter, and 91 intake cam too if you wanted) would there be any interest? $11k?

It depends on whether you find a buyer who's an enthusiast or not. If you get someone who can appreciate it, you'll get a premium price.

Otherwise, they're going to see it as evidence the car will be less than reliable, or has been abused, or can't be serviced by a dealer, because it's no longer stock.

Surely the SE-R community is large enough for you to find a buyer?!

Nobody want's a 4 door. Jk, I certainly would be interested if I was in the market for an SR20 powered vehicle. Hell I paid almost 11 for mine with 38k on it.

Ben, hack off the back 2 doors and then weld the trunk back on. Then you would have a 200sx
and I still wouldn't buy it!!! J/K. Long live the Classic!!!!!! Probably(definitly) have to find someone who KNOWS what they're buying, other wise put it back stock and don't mention what you have done to it.

dood. get off your ass and remove the turbo stuff you installed and sell it separately. You can always reinstall it on the NX and run around w/ that until you have the FMAX kit. Then you can sell the BBDET parts.

I would never buy a modded car. Or even one with evidence of being modded. Best case senario. Stock car driven by old person. Definitely not anyone on this site.

Nope I disagree Storm. Why would I want a car driven by some high strung young male who burns the clutch, spins the tires, shifts at redline. All the ball joints, springs, struts get a beat down when he slides through turns all the time. Why would I want a car someone else beat? I'll take a virgin 1 owner used car from someone with white hair.

Jordan, you are absolutely right. I have 2 cars, one has 150k on it, was driven and neglected by an old lady for about 10 years. The engine was covered in oil, and the car had many many gremlins due to neglect. On the other hand, my NX was owned by a co-worker and enthusiast and while he modded the car he also did all the routine maintenance including putting mobil one in the motor every 3k miles. The NX now has 195k miles on it and runs like a digital watch. The next used car I buy will be from an enthusiast that treats their car better than their toaster.

For the record- I do NOT drive like that on the street. Only at the track.

I'd buy a car that's "used to it's potential" more that one that's "virgin." If it's virgin then who knows if regular maintenance has been done, or if something is wrong with it that only flogging would let you know of it's existence?

Ive seen it time and time again. My friend's girlfriend just bought a 1993 Ford Escort, with only 11,000 miles on it, from a 70 something year-old lady. Its in perfect shape cosmetically, but you wouldn't even believe all the mechanical problems it's had. Lets just say mores than a 1975 Yugo.

My same friend bought a car of his own, a 1990 Eclipse Turbo, with a boost controller, brake upgrade, some minor other stuff with 170,000 miles, and it runs smooth as butter. Sure it can be a case by case basis, but I'd much rather buy a car from someone who knows what they have and what they're doing.

Um actually no, it's probably better to have someone actually interested in the cars, who changes the oil and keeps up with other maintences areas. Typically an older person only uses the car for transportation, and some parts of the car may go neglected. Trust me, I'd much rather have a lightly modded car from a 20 year old than a stock car from a 50 year old.
