Default Stock ECU? What do you do with it?

I've seen some places like Planet Miata asking some crazy prices for the stock ecu. I just have a hard time believing they're actually worth anything. Is there any demand at all for them? Maybe ebay or something?

I gave mine away after it spent 5 months as a paperweight.

Funnest thing I ever did with mine:

Right after MSing, I took it to my uncle's shop to swap clutch. I was going over some things I had done, sitting in the car while he was standing outside driver's door. When he asked why I installed an IAT sensor I just handed him the stock ECU from the floorboard and turned the key as he was staring at what he had in his hands.

Let me know before you buy one off ebay, I'll cut you a good deal on one

I keep it for passing smog. If MS could properly trigger EGR and CEL, then it would be gone.
