Cool Testing waters/Possible trade: awesome ETD long tube GT2860RS setup O_o

1st and foremost, this is a feeler. I completely randomly decided to consider/entertain/explore other options for my setup as I'm slowly building the spare engine for "project heavy pig".

This setup is for a 1.8. This is a serious setup, and should easily make well over 300whp.

-ETD "long-tube" high quality T3 stainless turbo manifold
-TiAL 38 external gate
-Garrett GT2860RS turbo with t3 .64ar hotside
-Ceramic coated downpipe
-PTP turbo blanket
-Stainless turbo heat shield

Everything is in excellent shape. Very low mileage and tip-top condition.
I WILL NOT SEPARATE, DON'T EVEN ASK.

Here's links to the pics and setup in my build thread:
to give
you a
visual

Trades I'll entertain:
Garrett GT2560R (or similarly sized name brand alternative) setup with BEGi or ARtech sidemount hotside parts. This would have to be manifold, turbo, downpipe - basically to replace the setup above.
-OR-
A cash offer.

My goal here is to simplify the setup and aim for less power output. 300-350WHP in a miata is a TON of power and I doubt I will ever even need that much power, I'm considering just aiming for 250. If I don't get any trades or buyers, I'll just keep this setup and install/use it. I'm under no pressure to let this go so don't even bother lowballing or offering me your janky egay turbo "kit" as a trade LOL

So PM or post up and holler at me.
Please refrain from off topic posts.

Thanks

So you're going to build the block and then puss out an use a 250whp setup? C'mon man you don't even track it. This is not a reliability thing so you might as well use the baller setup you've got unless you're looking to go EFR.

Smells like fish in here.

Thanks gayz. I should have clarified: if I switch to a 250whp setup I won't finish building the spare motor, and just part that out too.

Otherwise I'll proceed as planned.

Baller setup on built motor tuned to limit and then backed off boost to reach ~270WHP for bulletproof reliability.

****... I've got a complete FM setup (with every heat shield too) with a 2560. If we trade, I'll probably blow up my car on the first ******* event.

Tell me about that motor you are building.


PS: This setup will go great with my 3076 for an ultimate 400whp+ machine.

Its an '01 vvt motor. Brand new rods for it sitting here too (would fit your car too, obviously) that I'd sell if I sold or traded the setup.
Also your stocker would be fine if you didn't go past 10psi. The WG spring in the TiAL is an 8psi spring.

I really really really don't want to do this. But, I have more projects than I care to talk about, 2 properties that I'm planning lots of renovation to, a corvette, and a kid on the way, so at this time throwing on a simple setup and calling it a day seems like a good idea.

If not, I'll just keep slowly working on engine/setup and hopefully boost it sooner rather than late.r

I love you guys

My car is together and running perfectly.
Or do you mean my spare engine/setup?

I'm just entertaining options, if I don't get a good trade or cash offer I'll keep this setup. I'm not about to just give it away because I know its pretty sweet

I was talking about the motor/turbo in your perfectly running car.

The motor in your car currently should be the spare motor.

Quick question, what would all the parts you have listed cost if everything was new?

Good question. I'll have to do a little math and research and get back to you on that. Definitely a significant chunk of change
