Default Thinking of selling my car. What get me the most $$$

I'm thinking of selling my car and getting a mini moke as a new project

What do you guys think will get me the most cash money?

I have a 2000 SE, stock motor, FM turbo kit, Hydra 2.17 ECU, RC 550cc injectors, Vishnu fuel rail, FM 2 mid-pipe and muffler Spec stage 2 clutch, TEIN SS, Rota Slipstream 15x8 +40

Sould i sell it as...

A. As is, 270ish HP

B. As a Voodoo2 setup w/voodoo box. Sell the Hydra stuff and injectors and fuel rail on the side

C. Stocker. Sell all the aftermarket stuff separately.

I think I'll leave the suspension parts and clutch in it for less of a PIA.

Thanks, Andy

Selling it separately will bring you the most money.

remember that unless you have a lot of free time, time IS money so weigh your labor to remove stuff in there.

the hydra takes about 5 minutes to swap out... if you have a voodoo then maybe that's the way to go.

I'm going to sell it as a voodoo2. That way it's a car that will pass obd2 inspection here in NC. You are right, time is money.

What do you think is a fair price to ask for a Hydra 2.17 w/harness and WB? 2.17 is the dead end Hydra with no upgrade path.

Not sure what I'm gonna ask, kind of waffling. I'll post something in the next week or two.

nice car, but i would just sell it as is. maybe it's just me, but i've never really felt right about cars that are for sale without turbo kits or other fun bolt ons. yeah i know power modifications really don't add too much value to a car, but if you wait for a buyer that appreciates the car and knows what they are looking at it will be worth it.
