If you need to sell it quick, why dont you ask a reasonable asking price? Its a nice car, for sure- but LSVTEC's are unreliable as it is, especially since you didnt tell us who built or tuned it, or HOW its tuned. If an LSVTEC isnt properly built, theyre timebombs. Added to the fact that an LS block only revs to 6900rpm, and the VTEC doesnt really shine until 5900, leaving you with a 1k rpm powerband. Add turbo to the mix, and youre asking for trouble. A properly built LS turbo should take an LSV-T anyway. The only benefit to LSV is the higher compression ratio, and better flowing head. The higher compression does nothing for you since youre boosted, and for the $500 you spent on the vtec head, you could have gotten a sick port job on the LS head. Id recommend you put the LS head back on, and sell it as a JDM front LS-T. Then i'd price it at around 9-10k if youre lucky, and youll have $500 in the bank when you sell the VTEC head. If you sold the ls head, you should be able to pick one up for around $100. I wont mention the transmission.Other than that, sick car- good luck with the sale.

I have known plenty of ls/vtec's hold up with no problem at all. With most of them reving to 8k. Its all in the tune. My car is currently street tuned on Crome to 12lbs which should put it at just under 300whp. The car has been super reliable besides a ground issue that I fixed and I have daily driven it since February to NC from VA pretty much every other weekend. The motor isn't in bad shape at all. It could use a retune now b/c of the drastic temperature change ( i got it tuned in the middle of summer).
Now as far as the price. I have it at 10k which to me doesn't seem like a bad price at all. I mean the body is straight..no wrecks. The title is straight and in hand. All the rare and expensive jdm parts on it..ie the optional sideskirts and rear lip kit. How about you guys tell me what its worth. I am not looking for any trades at all. I need to sell it straight out to get rid of this loan.
