Since gas prices have gone sky high I have been seriously been thinking about selling my car. Now I need to know how much you think I can get for it.

97 Eclipse GSX
120k on the shell
10k on the 6bolt, radius valve job on the head,
20g(Bulleye Tubine Housing), Evo Exhaust Manifold,DSMLink v2, K&N FIPK, Walbro 255 FP, HKS SSQ BOV, MBC, ACT 2600, Stillen Short Shifter, Apexi Rev/Speed Meter, Apexi Auto Timer, 3inch turbo back exhaust, Greddy EGT, Megan Racing Boost and Oil Temp Gauge, 660cc injectors, Aeromotive AFPR, Johnny Racing FMIC with Custom short route piping, Tial 38mm Wastegate, Victory Performance o2 housing.

A/C was just replaced, has leather seats, and tires with about 4k miles on them. currently has a 14b on there until the 20g gets inspected and possibily rebuilt. If I do sell it, I might even throw in a 1g auto GSX in there that only needs a new fuel pump housing and turbo to get running.

Let me know what you think I can get just for the 2g.

:lol

If it was me $6,500-7,500, i guess peoples opinions will differ. It's probably worth way more than that but unless you sell it to someone that knows this, it won't be appreciated and im guessing thats what you could expect

how bad is your gas mileage?? Is it because of the car or your heavy foot? :D
I would go NO lower than 7,000. NOBODY will find a gsx in that condition for that price.

probably bad cause of the 20g and the 660 injectors. i know my foot would be heavy if i had a 20g.

I know someone that's looking for a GSX at a good price.

Part it out. Return it to stock and sell it. In order to get most of your investment back, that pretty much is the only way.

...and if you do, I want your dsmlink v2 and injectors. :D

My gas mileage isn't that bad, I average about 250 before my gas light turns on. No way I would sell it for just 7k, I was thinking around at least 10k+. But that's just me hoping that not that many people would buy it for that price and force me to keep it. I have seen a bunch of cars on dsmtuner classified that has less and they want around 13k.

in my old GST i went 180miles on a 1/4 tank going 80-100 home from austin. i generally got 325 or so when i was at 1/4 tank left. never let it go any further than that. i averaged 28mpg but that tank from austin i got 36mpg.

i miss the DSM.

Everyone thinks that 13k is way to much for my baby. I was wondering if it was worth it for my 2g, 1g, 2 spare 6bolt blocks, my FP Red and the 20g? Oh I have a 3inch intake now and a brand new o2 sensor.

What condition are those 6-bolt blocks in?

Tx97gsx
12-23-2005, 08:24 PM
one block is .40over and just needs new piston and rods to go in. the other is a standard bore.

For some reason now I think that I am going to sell all my DSM's and get a T/A or a Firehawk. So if anyone can make a reasonable offer, then it's yours.

Huy, dont do it. You just need to go on a shopping spree for her and make her all powerful and stuff again.

Getting tired of it, just want a normal car that I don't always have to put 93 in. Someone lock this thread, I'm making a new one with pictures of everything.
