Question Selling the Accord?

Lately I've been thinking that this project is gonna cost me a little more than I thought. I've already been through close to $200 on a battery, spark plugs and wires, and other things I didn't think I'd have to deal with. (Not to mention all the hours of labor I've put into it)

I guess what I'm looking for is an opinion. I've found a 91 240sx with very minor problems for $1200. Now I know I can get at least $2000 for my Accord. Should I...

A) Sell the car for what I can get for it and buy the 240
B) Sell the car for what I can get for it and buy a... (suggestions?)
C) Keep the car and bust my balls to make this car the beast it should be

I said it once to the original seller, I'll say it to you "Without a tune, that thing is gonna blow up"

I would save up some money to put a down payment on a newer car. If your car looks like it does in your sig, I wouldnt plan on getting $2k for it either.

Looks aren't everything.

I'll get 2k. I know for sure I can. The guy I bought it from had a buyer for $2100 and the only reason I got it for cheaper was because he was sort of a buddy of mine. It might take a while, but I have time.

Oh and...

Seriously, I don't think you fully understand, Driving it AT ALL is potentially destroying that engine without a tune, especially since you have stock injectors you are probably running lean as (And that A/F Gauge is narrow-band so it won't tell you anything useful)

So want to buy a new car because you had to spend money on a battery and plug wires... please its a USED car you are going to put money into it. If you like the car, keep it, who knows, the next car could have even more problems.

I don't give a fuck if it hits your car because for that to happen, I'd be in front.
