These parts worth $1500?

A local guy has these posts for sale for $1500. Off a 2012 gt with 5000 miles going on my 2014. Its it worth the money? Worried the header install will be a pita.

- SCT X3 with three dyno tunes. Tunes are.
1.) 93 octane john lund cam tune.
2.) 93 octane Steeda performance tune.
3.) 93 octane Pro Dyno performance tune.
- 1 7/8 American Racing headers (long tube)
- High flow CAT.
- Magnaflow X pipe.
- Magnaflow compatition series CAT back

I don't think so. Usually something is only worth half of what they paid for it after its used. 900 exhaust system and 699 for the cai and tuner. So 1599 he paid. I wouldn't pay more then 750-800.

Edit: didn't see the headers. They are probably 1500 so yeah the price is about right but obviously its not a great set up if the guys getting rid of it after 5000 miles lol

Try to get it for 1350 and your set but are you sure the tuner will work on your car. Usually hand held tuners only work on one car.

Those numbers seem a little high but I could be wrong.

Not true I bought my buddy's sct tuner I put his car back to stock plugged it in mine and it was good to go.. As long as the car is set back to stock it should work on another

It's not that they're good for one car, it's that they're married to the vehicle. They can be unmarried or unlocked for use on another car. Just to be safe, factor into your budget getting the tuner unlocked and purchasing new tunes. ARH's are top notch, the steeda cai is quality, and the rest of the exhaust is good as well. $1500 seems steep but it's not. It will totally transform your car. I'd scoop it up, your saving yourself almost a grand. Take him $1200 cash and see where it goes from there. Good luck!

These parts can be had brand new for just a little more. I would look into kooks or stainless works. ARH makes great headers but are far more expensive and are not allowed to be sold for less than %5 off MAP pricing. Stainless works makes great parts as well, and they don't care how much vendors sell then for, they just aren't allowed to advertise them under a certain amount.

I would look into stainless power also. Made and warrantied under the stainless works name, but product is outsourced. These can be had for under $900 with midpipe if you know where to look, ask me how I know lol. They are excellent quality, build, and material

Point is, he's asking too much for used stuff

While it seems like a good deal. i am going to keep it under warranty for a little longer. I ordered the american thunder flowmaster catback last night and a short shift/bracket. I am going to wait until beginning of the year a get the boss mani/tuner/CAI power pack from AM.
