Should I sell my '01 PY ITR?
So I am stuck with the decision... She is a beauty, super clear with a few (not many) physical blemishes and I absolutely love her. But she was stolen a few weeks back and recovered the same day, the only thing bad at the time was they stole the AEM EMS and now it'll have a salvaged title from FL because of theft. I purchased a used AEM EMS v2, but it turns out that it was modified for use with a Scion TC and apparently it won't work on the teg. The motor was rebuilt last year but the compression in cylinders 2 and 4 are at 80psi so I'm assuming they had one hell of a joy ride. There is well over 30k worth of work done to the car and boosting 26psi on a fully built motor and a Full JDM interior (9 out of 10 condition). I'm in the Army, stationed in San Antonio, TX but there is a strong chance I am getting stationed in South Korea next year so i would have to leave her in storage for 2 years (not taking with because I plan on looking for a JDM ITR while there and bringing it back, and I'm only authorized to bring back 1 vehicle).
I know that I will never get what the car's worth but, do I just keep throwing money to get it fixed (i do not have the time to work on her so i have to take her to a shop), or do I give her up for a fraction of what she's worth and let someone else fix her up and cherish the memories I had in my dream car?
BTW the car does start right up on the OEM ECU, so it's not much that needs to be done, my wife despises the car and I'm at the point of thinking that maybe, just MAYBE getting rid of the car would help out a bit.
I'm not getting rid of my wife, so I'm open to opinions... what do you think you would do in my situation?
Tegs are SEXY!!! Yes they are!!!
