NOS Electromotive Tec2 - Value?

I bought a lot of used RX7 12a parts which happened to include an Electromotive Tec2. It's the model with 4 coils mounted on the case and I can only assume the previous owner purchased it to run a 12a project which never happened. It doesn't even show signs of having been mounted. I know these are dated but would the unit still have value to anyone? Was considering listing here or Ebay to recoup some cost but I have no idea what it's worth today. Also came with a 60-2 trigger wheel mounted to a factory pulley/hub assembly but I think I will hang onto that in the event I go Megasquirt.

So what are these worth? Any value today? Worth keeping for a project or too ancient?

Next to none. I have 2 or 3 sitting on the shelf. I suppose if I get something that just needs to move under its own power I can rig one up but I'm not expecting much.

*edit*

I suppose if someone were to want/need one to restore an old race car and didn't want to update the ECU it could be worth something, but I wouldn't hold my breath.

They work fine. But it's not worth much because it probably needs firmware updated to be able to use relatively recent wintec software. Mine froze when trying to update and was going to cost $100+ to send it in to get updated.

Money is better spent elsewhere.

Thanks everyone. That more or less sums up what I've found doing some research on the unit as well. I will try to get it connected to the Wintec software for fun so I can play around and see what the feature set is like. No intentions of using it though. I removed a coil to take a closer look as its very similar to the dual tower coils sold by a few aftermarket companies and looks the same as the current electromotive coils. Turns out I wouldn't be able to use those either as they use an odd female spade connector molded into the back of the coil. So pretty much out of luck on this one. Thanks for the input.

They were reliable, but they had shitty/lack of staging and trailing control, not to mention a horrible interface.
