Question Sell together or part out... looking for advice

I'm in the middle of my first swap ever, and I want to get some money for my old ka to help finance this whole thing. Its a 95 s14 ka with a manual transmission, I have the ecu and harness as well, ran great in my 240. My question is should i part it out or wait until someone wants to buy it all together... I've gotten inquiries about certain parts off it(compressor, transmission) but I don't want to sell a few random parts off it because it will diminish the value of it as whole. I had the whole package originally listed on a few sites at $300, but when I realized just the manual transmissions alone go for 300-500 on ebay so I upped it to $950. If anyone has experience with this lmk what you think I should do. Also if anyones interested in it hmu, I'm near baltimore.

100% keep it together. $950 is a good price. I sold my entire swap for $800 2 years ago, $950 is a good price for what people want these days.

yeah theres a lot of variables here
mileage
condition
local market

$1k is totally reasonable if its fairly low mileage, good compression numbers, etc

you may be able to get more if you part everything out, but then you have to deal with it taking more time, having to deal with flakes, etc

the convenience of having the entire swap all in one location is def a good selling point

theres an old adage "a quick nickel is worth more than a slow dime" but if you have good offers i would part it out, if not hold out for the better deal...if you have storage space, get the extra money for sure!

"A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush"

Side Note: I can't believe 5spd KA24DE swaps are going for almost $1k! I used to give KA transmissions away for free to friends that needed them. And you could pick up a running KA24DE for a couple hundred bucks all day. I guess the game has changed because you can't find s-chassis like you used to be able to.

I feel like I could whip together a 5-speed sr20det for $1000~ if I needed to

The issue is it still needs a new turbo and 2k in accessories

Still not a bad 5-6k swap in today's market 350-400rwhp is reliable, more on E85 450rwhp I wouldn't be worried 380ft*lbs of torque at 2800lbs MMMMmmmmm delicious

sorry caught me reminiscing

900.00 isnt bad at all, especially if you have a compression tester and can prove good compression and such.... i picked up my ka for 800.00, proved good comp, with a 6 puck clutch, upper and lower harness, computer, and MAF

Thanks for the responses guys, seems like it'll be best to keep it together at least for the time being. Its just sitting in my driveway under a tarp right now anyways so no reason I can't leave it there for a while longer.
