FWIW, I would read that ad with the description of the tune and the PP 520 nozzles as you blew the motor by driving the sh!t out of the car. Whether it's true or not doesn't matter, it just seriously lowers what I would pay. As mentioned above, the cost of the parts is irrelevant, it's what is a 15 year old car worth to someone.
You might get your ask from a unicorn, but I wouldn't go past $3K.

......Tune and nozzles were installed after lifter failure. Lifter failure on these cars is fairly common, even with factory approved oils. A failed lifter would also be the least likely thing to occur by "driving the **** out of the car" with a tune and nozzles. The weak point on these cars are the factory rods and head bolts, but those nozzles and a stage 1.5 tune wouldn't come near the breaking limit of those parts. The great thing about my name being on the ownership is that I get to dictate how much $$$ it'll take for me to part with the car.

Ps. Car sold today for just a hair under asking price.
