What's my '94 VX swap worth?

I hope this is allowed.

Recently pulled almost everything off of my '94 Civic VX that made it a VX.
I have a guy that's interested, but I'm not sure what it's all worth.

177,XXX original miles

Entire engine, trans, harness, ECU, mounts, axles, shift linkage, EGR components, exhaust from manifold to muffler, radiator/fan/hoses/overflow tank, gauge cluster, front lip, wheels with almost new Michelin tires, airbox/hose, throttle cable, fuel filter, and factory alarm box.

NEW...timing belt, OEM water pump, OEM head gasket, valve cover gasket, intake/exhaust manifold gaskets, OEM alternator, OEM O2 sensor, plugs/wires/distributor, belts.
*Recently passed Georgia emissions!

Only problem.....VTEC pressure sensor is broken.

I'd really appreciate any useful input. Thanks, in advance!

It's a hacked 18 year old econobox that was hacked to remove the "econo" and despite (because of?) the hacking, has issues.

New parts and tires don't help its marketability. As the Bottle Rockets once sang,
Sink your money in it, and there you are
The owner of a two thousand dollar thousand dollar car

I'm not sure I understand - are you selling

1) a Honda Civic VX that has been modified so that it no longer has any VX equipment on it? or

2) all of the Honda VX equipment? Which is to say, the VX engine, VX transmission, etc?

If it's the former I wouldn't touch it. You'll find a market among the ricerboiz but probably not here. If, on the other hand, you were selling the VX components that's another story.

Most people wouldn't want all of the parts, so there is an upper limit to the value of the whole lot.
You can buy a rusted out VX for $300 but what you have is removed, that can have value for some parts and negative value for other parts.
Tires on rims only have value if they are what the buyer wants.

Nothing "hacked" about it. I've been working on Hondas for almost 30 years. I've just never owned a VX before and only bought this one for the near mint body/interior.
The only "issues" are a broken VTEC pressure sensor and it needed a valve adjustment, which I've done.
Also, new tires and all those new OEM Honda parts "don't help it's marketability"? That's hilarious! Have you ever sold a car?
Thanks, for your time, any way.

#2.....I'm selling all the VX components (listed in original post) and have a guy that's interested in buying it all. He has a DX body and wants to go "eco modder".
I'm just not sure what price to ask for it all.

Thanks, for taking the time to reply.

Umm, I would say 1,000 for everything. You are essentially selling it as a 'complete kit'. The guy who is buying it will literally not have to do -anything- other than slap it is. All the hard work is done.
