Icon2 How much do you think this CRX turbo b16 is worth?

I just totalled off my 1988 Honda CRX and am not happy with what the insurance company wants to give me for it. I want your Honest opinion of what you think it is worth. I'm not saying if you wanted to buy it from me and lowball me, I'm saying what you honestly think it is worth in the market based on your knowledge of this market.
The interior was almost stock, exterior was near show quality, Engine was built up a bit, and turbo'd. I ran a 12.5 1/4 mile @ 113mph this year on slicks.

Here is a list of mods:

Exterior:
Full Body Kit
All rust professionally removed (cut out body panels and replaced with HONDA OEM replacement panels)
Lexus IS300 Tri Coat Pearl White paint
All new lights: Clear corners & bumber lights, Carbon fiber altezza tail lights with custom LED ring conversion, Projector Headlights with HID kit
Limo Tint rear windows
17" Eagle Alloy Rims
3" Stainless Steel Mandrel bend exhaust - Custom for turbo
Magnaflow Stainless Steel Muffler
Dual Stainless Steel exhaust tips

Interior:

6" Custom in-dash screen
2-12" Sony Subs
Clarion 400watt amp
JDM Honda SIR gauge cluster
A-pillar (3) gauge pod
Boost Gauge
Oil Temp Gauge
Oil Pressure Gauge
AEM Uego Wideband Air/Fuel Gauge

Engine:
B16a 2nd gen
Hasport mount kit with cable to hydro conversion
Full Race Traction Bar
Bosch Spark Plug Wires
Fidanza Flywheel
Exedy Stage 2 clutch
Cometic Head Gasket
Wiseco 81.5mm forged pistons
ARP Head Studs
Hondata Headshield Intake manifold gasket
New seals and gaskets for whole engine
New water pump, oil pump, timing belt etc..
Faced off crank pulley (only 1 groove left)
Overbored, Resurfaced, engine build

Turbo:
Peakboost SS equal length manifold
Garrett T3/T4 turbo (57 trim, 0.63 a/r)
3" SS Downpipe
Tial Wastegate
Tial BOV
Peakboost FMIC (3" core)
Polished aluminum IC piping (custom moulded to front bumper)
TurboXS dual stage boost controller
Chipped ECU
Walbro Fuel Pump
Precision 880cc Injectors
Custom SS wastegate elbow
SS braided lines
steel vaccuum lines

Now this list doesn't include everything, but should give you a decent picture of my car. I have about $26,000 US ($32,000 Canadian) in just receipts, not including all my time and some receipts I can't find.

ibtl..i'm trying to do research to find out what other people think it is worth so I have something else to tell the insurance company. This isn't just for the fun of it, I'm asking for help from the community on this one. Where else should I post this instead then?

I hate to say it but unless you had additional coverage on the car, all they have to give you is what the KBB value of the car is. If you can provide recipts for the money you put into the car they may consider reimbursing you.

the only thing i could say is. "i hope you got it appraised and still have all your receipts" unless you can prove to the insurance company how much you actually put into your car they are only gonna give you KBB price. if it had been appraised that would be a signed legal document that tells full value of your car with all mods. sorry i think you might get somewhere in the woods of 2500 at most. but thats my opinion. anyone else????



p.s. IBTL

I do have $32,000 in receipts ($25K US). I also had it appraised for $10,500 (cad) before I even touched the engine, then i put over 10K into the engine...

I do realize you never get out what you put in, especially in imports..and the market is kinda in a slum..

But I appreciate all of your input guys! Keep it coming.

Instead of bashing the dude give your honest opinion. It may not be your taste and it may be, who knows. He's asking nicely to please give your opinion. With the time and money invested what would you say the car is worth? Besides the hideous body kit, rims and gauges, the car isn't that bad, its clean.

Detonation, too much compression ( cylinder pressure) for the octane, will pound out rod and Main bearing quite quickly. Except on Honda-Tech where people run 13.5-1 motors everyday. Of course total timing at WOT needs to be like 17, and a big BHP loss. Having a 13-1 street motor is like saying my d*** is bigger than yours, except it never gets hard. The dumbest Honda guy's i have ever met want more than 12-1 on a street motor, with pump gas. Legal octane variations are 4%. So your "93" can be 89.

i'd probaly give u 3k top... maybe less.. i don't care how much you pour into your car.. Your Crx isn't even a SI model... insurance doesn't care if you Modded it, that is your own fault for duping all that money in a crx... i bet insurance will probaly give you 2000 for your car!! not bashing on him, just giving him a honest thought bout his situtation..

I voted for $6k even though it should have been less.

I honestly dont care what your receipts say if you put $26k into that car you got RIPPED IMO!

The car wasnt even completely clean you had to cut off the original sheet metal and have it replaced and I dont care if it was replaced with Honda OEM panels still had to cut into the car and to me once the original sheet metal has been messed with its not even something I want to mess with.

The bodykit is what a fiberglass kit? Most expensive bodykit out there is the like 10 or so piece black widow kit that goes for $2k (which is also ugly btw) you could have went with like the Mugen knock off kit (Wings West) and it would have looked much better. You can get those headlights, bumper lights and corner lights off of Ebay for less than a $100 bucks.

I dont care if you used the most expensive paint in the world to paint it you're NEVER going to get anything near the cost to paint it back.

Yes get rid of somethings on it and it could have been a very nice car engine bay looked nice.

So if you dont mind me asking how much did your insurance company offer you?

OH PLEASE! This is a PUBLIC forum if he or anyone else didnt want to hear bad things about it then do NOT post it up! Fine its "his cup of tea" as you worded it but doesnt mean everyone else has to like it and when he is asking what do YOU think its worth thats open for EVERYONE and ANYONES opinion.
