Default FS: FFS Coldside $2300

Hey Guys,

First off, I know it's not a turbo . But, I'm selling it to buy a turbo! I'm selling my BRP/FFS Coldside complete kit w/MP62 blower, 5th injector, JR PowerCard and Split Second Additional Injector Controller. I also have the BRP PnP box for the JRPC so you don't have to hack the wiring harness. This is one of the original BRP kits that I updated to FFS standard last year with the upgraded layout (mostly vacuum lines, distribution block, and IAC location & bracket) and upgraded with eCool. Tom at FFS fully supports the BRP-sold Coldside kits. Also, it's now got a 110mm pulley.

This kit is for the 99-00 cars but will may work on earlier 1.8 cars (I would ask Tom at FFS to check). Kit will make around 190rwhp - I'm probably closer to a little over 200 as I have a built engine, header, and exhaust.

The supercharger is on the car now and working great. It's got a little over 5,000 miles on the supercharger. The car was down for nearly a year. So, it's fairly low miles. Hey, you can even help me pull it off! (that's not a requirement for sale, however ).

I'm putting on a BEGI S5 kit (with GT2871R Turbo). Been wanting to push the horsepower up with the built engine and could only see getting this one up to around the limits of the stock engine.

$2300 (got to sell it and get it off to make way for -and defray the costs of- the turbo). If you're interested and have questions, PM me.

if i was in the market for a forced induction system for a miata, i would have to give the mp62 some serious thought as it would completely change the way the car drives compared to a turbo. I love the response and bottom end power of supercharged cars ive driven before (although they were a pontiac ss bonneville and a V8 mercedes that my buddy "borrowed" from his dads dealership, so its sorta apples to oranges.

good luck with the sale

Thanks. I agree. The MP62 is some serious fun. And, the Coldside's response is sweet. If I thought I could get it to over 300whp, then I would keep it on (and I've thought a lot about this - no easy task).

I've been asked about what's different from my kit to the current FFS Coldside that Tom is selling. So, I'll just cover it here as well.

Here's my understanding of the major differences:
- eCool - Original BRP did not have eCool. I upgraded when Tom added it. The retrofit, however, is added through the Supercharger adapter plate. The current manifold has eCool threaded directly into manifold. Tom indicated that the retrofit location provides equivalent performance to it being in the manifold.

- Vacuum line's - Tom upgraded the vacuum line layout twice (as I recall) once to include the distribution block and again re-routing the IAC and valve cover hoses. I upgraded both times and I'm using the current configuration.

- IAC location - IAC was originally mounted on the supercharger but the mount experienced numerous failures. Current location is on the firewall next to the distribution block. I upgraded to that location when Tom made the change.

- Fuel Management - The BRP Coldside came with the JR PowerCard originally. They switched to the ELF and I upgraded at that time (at considerable cost because that blew my [email protected]#%ing engine). FFS stuck with the JRPC and added the Split Second Additional Injector Controller to control the eCool injector. I upgraded again during this time. Currently, however, two PCPro's are used to manage fueling and eCool.

- Throttle Cable Adapter - The original BRP adapter was reshaped from the original bracket. The current version, I believe uses a machined piece. My mechanic upgraded this when he put in my built engine (this one I'm less sure of because I didn't install. Could be my mechanic designed the replacement - but I believe he got from Tom).

- Automatic Belt Tensioner - Originally, the BRP Coldside had BRP etched into the Belt Tensioner. When FFS was launched, they switched to "FFS" etched into the Belt Tensioner. Later upon getting CARB Approved, they added the EO sticker verbiage and number to the Belt Tensioner. My belt tensioner still says "BRP"

I believe that about covers it.
