    caught in a mosh...

    a car as "old" as that with those miles (on the car, not engine) a bank will not finance $8-9k for it...unless you pay cash for it (but who has that much cash laying around???). you MAY be able to get $5k tops (but i see you have way more into it). banks dont look at whats done to the car, they look at the car itself and determine the value based on shape of the car and miles. my dad was a VP for a bank and he told me thats how they did it.

    Believe me I know this :D ,it was hypothetical,but I'm not sure about the civilian world,but here in the military we can get signature loans based on how long you have been in the service and how long you have left.That's how I got the loan for my car now and the money for the swap and excess goodies.

    try having a bank give you a loan for a 2000SI with extra money so you can fully build the motor and turbo it they wont do that either

    thats the problem with "hobbies" you wont get anything back out of them unless its old trains, guns, coins...

    bottom line is if some ones looking to build a honda for speed they can either

    A. buy a car 2-5K then sink 10 into it and still have stuff on the list of things to buy

    B, buy one fully built and done right to start with for 13-15K

    I wish I went with the later....

    the going rate in maryland for an engine swap is 3500-5500 "parts and labor" turbo kits if done right installed will run you 4500-5500 "counting install and tuning" if none then make that 2500-3000 bucks
    so thats 7500 bucks right there then you need to resleeve it 1000-1500 bucks
    then pistons/rods 800 bucks rings 80-100 bucks
    labor to put it in 750 bucks
    then exhaust 500 bucks and custom dp 300-400 bucks

    see my point?

    I very much doubt I would sell my car just becuase its a blast and Im only a set of injectors and manifold away from 350-450WHP

    but if I could do it again I would pay 15K bucks for my car as it is then to build it over again
    keeping in mind I paid 6800 for the car to start with before mods

    I know people with older 240Zs worth 10K plus to bad you could only get a loan for 2K if that...
    on paper its not worth much to bad some of them have supra TT engines as with skyline engines and GNX engines.... the point is who cares what banks say becuase in that case my cars worth 3500-4500

    ending quote... hobbies are for one thing and that is to burn holes in wallets

    you could get about 8 grand for it. if you hold out, 10k is possible.... but its going to take a while to sell it.

    what are you looking at getting?

    just wondering thats all but I have heard of cars going for 12-14K but its all in the right person at the right time

    bottom line if some one knows what it really cost to do things right then chances are it will go for more

    how much did you pay for your setup brian? VS building it yourself

    same thing goes for that

    always cheaper to buy what some one else has done VS building it from the ground up

    im not a good example. i got my motor from a guy who needed cash fast, to pay his court fines :p

    what i got, was worth:

    gsr swap - 3000
    IB build - 4000
    b16 head work - 2000
    misc shit - 1000

    i paid 4200 for it with 4k on it.

    no it is a good example it just shows that if you buy it predone its alot cheaper then doing it yourself
    on AVG what do you think a fully built honda would cost you? Im talking buying a Chassis not in need of paint also having the insides being very clean and a motor that could hold 500WHP what do you think it would cost?

    and don't use your B hook ups=) damn you and your friends but on avg for the AVG hondaswap member what it would cost

    lol, shit, get some nitro methane, much cheaper than 500 bucks. Just make sure you race for more than the value of your car :)
