Default Selling price? '99, 90k mi, CARB legal FM turbo

Friend of mine is considering selling his NB. Details:

Silver/black '99
90k mi
AZ/CA car
Really nice original body/paint/interior, no accidents
Matching hardtop
FM turbo kit (aux injector setup), CARB legal, passes smog
Depowered rack
3" custom exhaust
Koyo rad
15" Kosei K1s, good tires
Roll bar (Hard Dog?)
Removable air dam with brake ducts for track use

Anyway, there are more odds and ends but this should be good for a start. Any idea what's a realistic asking price based on the above list? I really have no idea what these things go for nowadays.

7-10 is a rough range.
pictures would help get that number more precise.

I'd say 8k will sell fast. 9k with the hardtop will require salesmanship. 7k is under market for something like that.

Where was this car back when I bought my NB? Its exactly everything I wanted.

I with y8s on this one. I'd have very little to argue about at 8k. Its about ballpark with everything I've seen/willing to pay for an NB with an aftermarket turbo kit. The fact that it passes smog is super win and kinda a big selling point, provided the seller has the documentation to go with it.

It lives in Los Angeles / OC in a smog check area. It passes smog legitimately, no worries there. I'll try to get some images.

Took these crappy pics of it at the office this morning. It's really dim in there so sorry for the quality.

Also, it has Bilsteins on coilovers of some kind.

I mean condition doesn't matter as long as it's at least a 7 or 8 out of 10. Nobody cares about cherry miatas. I'd say that car conforms to the minimum requirements.

Apparently people also don't care what's done to it beyond "a lot" because, after all, it's still someone else's idea of a turbo miata. This one has the standard upgrades so it pushes it to a nice aftermarket miata price range.

Quantifying details is not really worth the time. If the seller feels 8k is fair, list it for 8k or 8k plus haggle room. I sold a lot more turbo miata than this for around that price and I was happy.
