Default how much would you pay for my car?

I am thinking about selling my car. I have never got to tuning it so i have no idea on WHP. The cars kind of beat up, and would need a bit of body work.
how much would this car be worth, or how much would you pay for it? I kind of lost interest and would like to start over and do the k20 swap.

The car
99 mazda miata green
Around 115,000 miles
Salvage title

The car has the following mods.
04 vvt engine 65,000 miles.
949 twin disc clutch.
Gt2560r turbo
Custom skunk2 style intake manifold.
Skunk2 70mm throttle body
Megasquirt 3 reverant ms3 basic computer
Aem tru boost gauge
Aem uego wideband
Toyota coil on plug cops
Kaaz 1.5 way differential
Keislerautomation drop spindles front and rear.
Bilstein with ground control suspension
Revlimiter custom gauges
Nrg short hub
Neg quick release
Unknown steering wheel
Detachwerks dw300 fuel pump
Rx7 460cc injectors
coolant reroute


Will also come with.
Springfield Dyno Crossflow Radiator

Thanks.

I read "Keislerautomation drop spindles front and rear" and have determined the car is worth about $75.

I'm sure that's why emilio is using them in his next race car build. Unproven but quite nice fabrication work on the photos(supposedly also making some folded chromoly control arms that should be stronger than tubular but light interesting). Benefit is probably not going to be evident on a build of the level
Seems like an ok build but would have to see picture of body/interior, wheels and engine bay(to see if looks like a hack job-not saying it is but it makes a difference)

Sorry I've never uploaded photos from my phone to mt. I couldn't figure out how to upload multiple at once. I wasn't letting me upload multiple.

Pros...ms3, it's turbo'd, it's vvt, it has a pile of aftermarket items.
Cons...salvage title, it has a pile of aftermarket items, salvage title, it has rx7 460's instead of rx8 425's, etc.
If it was my car I'd ask $7,000. I'd take the first $6,500 that somebody shows me. If somebody offered me $5,000, I'd be dissapointed, but I'd embrace reality. If offered $4,000 I'd tell them to find some railroad tracks, stand between them, and just wait.

I would pretty be happy with $6500.
You think i could make any more trying to part it out, the whole car including stock parts?
Just thinking about it parting the car out might be a better idea.

It is a very wierd mix of super baller parts and then ultra shitty parts (RX7 injectors why??). Definitely part out.

It'd present it self a lot better with a few rolls of electrical tape and a couple hundred zip ties in the engine bay, stripping the paint off the rear wheels, and giving it a decent bath.

Or sell it to Turbofan. Sounds right up his alley.

Damn, I need to build a car from salvage parts and sell it to you!

That car is worth at MAX the NADA medium to high value. Mods count against. Salvage title counts against. Body damage counts against. Best thing you could do $$$ wise would be part it out.

Clean retail would be $5000. The car is rough, modified, and has a salvage title.

I wouldn't expect more than $2500

Will do.

What do you guys think I could get for some of these parts? I have an idea for them in my head but I feel like how much I think something is worth and what it's actually worth are no where near each other.

For a quick sale 50% of purchase price. If you are not in a hurry 75%. This is for working parts in good condition.

As is, I'd pay maybe $3000, only to part it out and hope for ~$1500 profit.
