KBB assumes stock. So that may hurt slightly. Try 6000, but accept slightly lower if nobody bites.

would you be willing to return the car mostly to stock and sell off all the mods? (radio, subs, etc.) I did it with my civic, took me less then 1 weekend to return it to stock, then sold the civic, then sold the rest of the stuff for like an extra $500 (front lip, front grill, ebay projectors, stock tail lights)
