Default Picked up a greddy turbo car. YaY!

I scored a Greddy Turbo! Now we have to decide whether to put it on my brothers roommates car or sell it $$$$. My car is turbo'ed. My brothers car is SC.
I'm kinda thinking $$$$$. How much do you think I could get for it. It is a basic greddy kit, complete with fpr and MSD box.

It came on a car we bought. I think I can make more on the car if I sell the turbo separate. The car is super clean, but needs a paint job. It is lowered and has a great stance. The spoiler is a nice one. I may take the spoiler off too.

The delima is, is the motor blown or is it ok. We picked it up out of a junk yard. This car had no business in a Junk Yard! I was so happy. The body is straight and the interior clean. The guy said he picked it up at a impound sell. The injectors where missing. But otherwise, it is pretty complete.

I tried to get my brother to go turbo, and give the s/c to his roommate.
He thinks he will have to work on tuning the turbo. He doesn't realize that the same FPR setup running his S/C is going to run the turbo. Oh well, you can lead a horse to water. But you can't make him drink.

Hey, I may be interested if the price is right.

How does everything look on the turbo?
Let me know if theres any shaft play.
And the condition of the manifold.

Not really. I have busy with hockey and whatnot. I would like to though. I think i'm going to sell that white one I bought to my friend. But then again, one can never have enough miata's.

not to threadjack ( you already did..haha) why are the trackdays at MSR so expensive? I love that track, but can't figure out why it cost double what a Hallett trackday costs?
