Ubercharger U3 complete kit, never installed (not mine) -- $1250
Well, the seller says it's complete, minus a few pieces.
We'll go with "mostly complete."
Anyway, seems like a good deal for someone who wants one of these hard to find kits.
Ubercharger (Lysholm/Whipple) twin-screw compressor supercharger kit, as engineered and sold by BEGI / Flyin' Miata for a 1999 Miata--should fit other years as well, but likely requires cylinder NB head. If you want to go SSM fast in a Miata, here's your ticket! Purchased in April 2009, it was the last set of hardware FM had. The kits ultimately went out of production largely due to the high cost of the Lysholm/Whipple blower units, or so I was told. The power potential and torque curve shape make this the supercharger of choice for SSM Miatas. I had planned to use it for an SSM build, but decided not to go to SSM. The kit has not been installed** -- I never even fully unboxed it.
This is basically a U3 kit which is as complete as FM could make it, less electronics. It is missing the intercooler (BEGI or other source) and a couple of easily-replaceable pieces of hardware. This is a VERY complete lot, down to the new K&N air filter and the Flyin' Miata boost gauge with A-pillar mount. Full installation instruction book from FM is also included. Both intercooler and non-intercooler plumbing are included, so you could easily go WI instead of IC. This kit should be good for about 225whp with proper fueling and controls, but is capable of much more if you have the bottom end to support it.
**The supercharger assembly itself was used, but Flyin Miata shipped it off to Whipple for inspection before putting it back on the shelf. All other parts are brand new.
