We have a Gaged GX8 CVT that got knarled last year during competition.  The secondary is pretty scraped up, but salvageable.  The primary is done. Would it be better to spend the money and just get a new unit, or just buy a new primary?

To me, I think new car = new unit.

+1, if you have the money. 

When you are putting in all the effort to enhance the acceleration of the car (saw your gearbox post), why leave this one out?

if you have the money, buy a whole new unit. if your short on funds, you can buy individual components of these things so you can buy only what primary components were actually damaged and then new secondary sheeves as well.

If its just the sheaves that are messed up and you do not have the resources to buy a whole new primary or CVT, make or buy your own sheaves. They are not super complicated parts.
