If you use it as a trade in, it may actually lose value with any mods over stock. On a private level you may be able to recoup some of the mod value but not usually.. Unless it were a full custom most times modded cars are a loss.. You could put it out there with a firm asking price and sell it 2-day, or it could sit there forever waiting to be sold @ your price.. As a purchaser myself I always barter for a lower value on a modded car.. Basicly if you want to make some money on it you need the right buyer.. In this econ good luck.. If it were me I'd clean it up as best as possible and put it up for sale around High School graduation time a see if you get any bites..

or you can part it out if you want
it being a hardtop should add some value to it for the right person

I would keep it imo to have for a DD instead of putting miles on the trans am, wish my lil bro wouldnt have totaled my firebird or I would def be driving it right now instead of the ws6 I hate putting miles on it like I am and the wear and tear.

Heres a crazy idea. Hold onto the car, keep looking around until a New base 3.6l V-6 Camaro gets totalled from the side or rear and transplant its engine, tranny and ecm/wiring harness? There good for 305-ish horsepower and what is 276 lbs of torque? A six speed manual 3.6 in a 3,200-ish found 4th Gen Firebird would be almost 500 pound lighter than the 5th Gen Camaro V-6's! And all that before you mess with it! I could see a phone call to Frost in your near future.

I think the 3.6 dohc or LQ1 would have been a better choice in v6 4th -gens from the factory.. Tho the global had'nt been produced yet a cousin engine like the LQ1 would have been a better choice than the ohv 3800 in my oppy.. The 3800 is a good engine tho,, but it's nothing like a Twin dual cam, or the global would be/have been..

What I meant with risk is this:
1) Used engines aren't new engines, there no real guarantee anything will work right when you put it in. New engines that what weren't original in the car weren't designed for that car. There is no real factory warranty to make things go right as well.
2) There usually some headache involved when putting an engine in a car that that same engine style wans'nt already equipped in the car in the first place.
3) You will need to spend more money than you thought you were on the job.You'll usually stumble on some component on the car that really needs replacing or something won't fit just right without some sort of addition of labor, parts etc.
4) When putting in an engine with noticably more power than the old, especially in an older project car, something HAS to break.
5) Etc. etc etc.
Tinkering has unintended consequences that can accompany the rewards. That doesn't mean don't do it (why would we be on this website if we were that timid?) It just means we need to acknowledge the possibilities and be willing to accept risk in order to attain the rewards (if they are reasonable).
