Yeah you might have to get a little more specific.

Are we talking, drift slut race car? or N2 race car? Lol.

Yea your post is vague prices vary if its a coupe or hatch, sr5 or gts, carb or FI 13b, what gen engine is it? Is it ported? If its sr5 coupe, carbd with a stock s5 or s4 13b would get much less than a gts hatch with a renesis FI engine lol

sanctioned race car? Or is it a caged AE86 that is used mostly on track?

In most cases.... A sanctioned car will be worth more then a caged AE86

Car is a hatch, not sure if it started as gst or sr5. It's a sanctioned race car. Scca. Clean no rust. Carbed, ported,somewhat built 13b from an 87 rx7. Turn key besides changing fluids. Not a track slut but not the prettiest paint either

There is definitely a market for a car like that. The value is debatable. Check the VIN # first to see if it was a GTS or SR5 and that should narrow the value range down. Also, how extensive is the SCCA history on it? I think those two things would matter the most on finding the value of it.

I agree with aukword... If it's a sanctioned car the negotiations with price will be a little more..

Although to me swapping to a 13b brings down the value of the vehicle. I don't like rotary engines, and the whole reason I didn't buy an FC over a piston 4AGe is because of this!

Just my two cents

you are missing out my friend, but FCs are a too big and overweight and do feel like a whale behind the wheel, the FB Gsl-se is golden, lets put it this way, you got to spend about 2k in suspension on an 86 to make it handle like a stock Gsl-se and about 1k under the hood to try and keep up with a stock Gsl-se lol...rotaries are just like pitbulls, there are no bad rotaries just bad owners....

Sorry for going off the topic but, I must agree 100% to the above statement.
After owning both FC and FD, sounds of rotary engines are nothing but, great harmonies to your ears at both idling and high RPM... :P
Just need to perform regular maintenance, NOTHING special.

13B powered AE86? sounds like a fun...as long as everything is LEGAL for street.

I agree man, but why go Rotary with a car that so easily takes straight 4/6 engines? They are far easier to maintain/source parts for.

I don't have anything against Rotaries, they actually are super compact and give you a TON of engine bay space. I'm just not a good enough mechanic to be able to fix everything, and when you have a rotary, you limit your shop options... Just my 2 cents.

Also, remember you are in Japan, where FDs/FCs sell for United States Honda Civic prices ;)

If I own AE86 today, replacing engine to 13B is definitely NOT an option.
I would like to keep it ORIGINAL as possible that would be same engine type: 4A-G.
AE86 = 1.6 piston engine is my opinion as well.

But, if someone has 13B powered AE86, I would love to sit behind the wheel for a test drive..... ;)
I am not sure about LS1 powered FC or FD...that I saw many of them when I reside in SoCal.

Once again, yes, everyone has different ideas and I respect that for sure.
Sorry for going off the topic again. I wish topic owner would post more information on this 13B powered AE86.

I don’t want to post a link to photos because i don’t want someone to buy it out from under me. Assume everything looks pretty good and clean but it is a race car so not perfect
