Default Pricing Question

I have a Miata diff housing with a rx7 clutch type lsd and cryo-treated 3.63 gears in it that I've had a few local folks ask to buy. What's a fair price for something like this?

Nice score, that's less than what the gears alone cost, not to mention getting it setup properly.

Thanks for the input everyone, gives me a pretty decent idea about what it's worth.

Do the ring and pinion bolt to the stock torsen unit? I'd be interested in those separately if you part them.

gears: $300
clutch diff: $150
housing: $100
assembly: $150

Having just put a setup like that together that's about what I paid. Anyone who wants that setup will have to piece it all together, just like we did since there is no off the shelf configuration with a clutch diff and 3.6 gears.

I would ask $600-$700 and settle in for the long sale.

I'd break it apart and sell the pinion housing w/pinion and ring gear together and then sell the diff meatball separately.

It's trivially easy to set up a new meatball but not as easy to set the pinion depth.

and customers may not want both together as often as not...

If it were a torsen unit, I'd pay about 500$ for it.
