I say keep all the turbo bits you can, sell the rest, and buy a beat up 1.8 car.

then run with it. I think you can get a little more coin for that trans though. What is the salvage value?

I dont know at this point i kinda just want it gone. Ill tell him $3500 + the buy back from farmers. Oh but i am going to keep the WI,BC and see if i can keep the 550 cc inj. Oh and befor the car was crashed it bogged at 3k Im sure it was just the tune. I just want my 2ed miata sooo bad.

You'd be stupid/lazy to sell it. Why dont you just buy a dsm shell and swap all the parts over. And then if you really wanted to see it, you could get a hell of alot more then $3500. But if you content at selling it for $3500, I could see if my buddie wants it and might even give you more for it.

Ok so farmers will give me $2300 and the car. Sell the car for $3500. I told farmer i wanted $500 more so that would give me $6300. I think thats good, I can build a badass miata for that.
