Default how much do you think this miata cost?

Hi everyone,

i have quick question about the miata i will try to sell.
here are the specs:

Bodykit
greddy turbo kit running about 11psi
water/alcohol injection custom
starion intercooler custom
saab BOV
the turbine housing was welded to manifold cause of bolts shearing.
pierburg fuel pump
BEGI AFPR
1.8 injectors but included are 310 cc injections with low ohms
rear wing spoiler
no flip up headlights
boost gauge
narrowband air fuel ratio gauge
17 inch alloys
75% tires larger at back than in front
flyin miata catback exhaust with the single tip everything is 2.5"
no catalitic but i have it and its brand spankin new only used for smog.
i have original headers and air intake if wanna return car to stock
almost new soft top with glass window
engine has 272,000 miles on it.
i have never had a problem just the starter but i changed it.
its has all the fluids changed, always maintained.
smoked tailights
8mm spark plugs - red ones from magnecor i believe
extended reach spark plugs - NGK
pionner mp3/wma stereo with new front speaker
boss frog DD heavy duty roll bar it is the best one for the miata
Dinoed about 1.5 yrs ago at 200 motor hp, at 10 psi.

The bads:
makes noises because of loose parts but i usually try to tighten.
smog not included cause it has no cat but can be welded back.
missing the center console
engine a little oily but an engine wash will do the trick

i will post pictures but i dont know how. i can email them to someone and
he/she can post them.

i was thinking about 3000 dollars. what do you think?????????

Based on mileage alone I wouldnt give you more then 500 bucks for it.

Not even gonna mention the half *** fuel management, and the rest of the ghetto fab parts in there.

Clean up the car the best you can.

Ask for the $3000 and wait and see what happens. You will see where you stand with the price by seeing the amount of calls coming in. If it doesn't sell, lower it.

Personally, I would start with $3700 or so and take it from there.

It all depends on how long you want to wait to sell it.

Hi everyone,

i have quick question about the miata i will try to sell.
here are the specs:

Bodykit The fact that you lead with this one tells us a lot
greddy turbo kit running about 11psi fair enough. used to run one myself
water/alcohol injection custom would have to see installed to understand whether "custom" is a good or bad thing
starion intercooler custom better options on the market
saab BOV fair enough
the turbine housing was welded to manifold cause of bolts shearing. wow, seriously? that's the second time i've heard of anyone welding a greddy turbo to a manifold. you didn't happen to buy that off of someone on here did you?
pierburg fuel pump bandaid. boo.
BEGI AFPR see above
1.8 injectors but included are 310 cc injections with low ohms see above
rear wing spoiler could be cool. probably not. need picture to know
no flip up headlights again, see above.
boost gauge i would hope so
narrowband air fuel ratio gauge you just failed to sell your boosted car with this one line item. sorry.
17 inch alloys you hit a curb and lost a wagon wheel. you have no spares remaining. your party has died.
75% tires larger at back than in front why?
flyin miata catback exhaust with the single tip everything is 2.5" fair enough.
no catalitic but i have it and its brand spankin new only used for smog. fair enough. "catalytic", btw.
i have original headers and air intake if wanna return car to stock i wish everyone would do that. it does seriously make it a lot easier to sell a car that way. seriously.
almost new soft top with glass window excellent
engine has 272,000 miles on it. EPIC FAIL
i have never had a problem just the starter but i changed it. so you have had a problem. lol.
its has all the fluids changed, always maintained. records to prove it?
smoked tailights ebay, FTW!~!!1!
8mm spark plugs - red ones from magnecor i believe fair enough
extended reach spark plugs - NGK "extended reach"?
pionner mp3/wma stereo with new front speaker what about the back ones?
boss frog DD heavy duty roll bar it is the best one for the miata according to whom?
Dinoed about 1.5 yrs ago at 200 motor hp, at 10 psi. triceratops or velociraptor?

The bads:
makes noises because of loose parts but i usually try to tighten.
smog not included cause it has no cat but can be welded back.
missing the center console meh.
engine a little oily but an engine wash will do the trick or you could find the source of the oil leak and fix it. but that's just a thought.

i will post pictures but i dont know how. i can email them to someone and
he/she can post them. photobucket.com. create an account, upload your pictures, then copy the IMG tag data from under each picture and copy it into the text box here

i was thinking about 3000 dollars. what do you think????????? he continued, "??????????????????????????????"


thanks you are quite welcome
Seriously, you are probably better off putting the car back to CLEAN stock and selling it that way. Then sell off your aftermarket items in a part out. You will more than likely do much better that way. That high mileage kills you though.

cool thanks for your honest opinions.

I even forgot to metion it has lowering springs. and red racing seats.

Now the reason i wanted to start the car at 3K is that drag racers
are really big around here and they drive stock crx's that they pay around 2K
for them. with wat my car has i believe the miata could take on a lot of honda racers and other american cars they have out here. i believe my car looks clean but i will post pics later on.
If i dont sell it i guess i will throw in a V8. or definitely rebuild the engine by buying a 1.8 and stroking to a 2.0

thanks
