Bemani Supercharger kit Elise/Exige--Updated Pics!

Hey Everyone
I have a Bemani Supercharger kit for Elise/Exige. These kits are pretty rare and are very well built. They used a m90 Eaton blower unit with a air/water intercooler and heat exchanger that mounts in the front of the caron the bottom side of the clam with a louvered cover plate.
I have never had this kit installed personally, the guy I bought it from had it on a 06 Elise for approx. 6000 miles.
The kit seems to be complete minus some nuts/bolts, the header, header heatshield and the fuel pump that originally was included. The kit will also need a new bypass valve control cable made---super easy and cheap the current cable is frayed. ill check locally and see if I can have one made up before its sold.
The blower bearings feel great, nice and tight, no noise, spin freely.
Guys have had great luck with this kit and made 270+ hp on stock engines.

Here is the link to the Bemani website for more info:
bemani* --* Lotus Exige & Elise R supercharger tuning

The kit originally sold for around $8-9k
Asking $4200 obo.==Make me an offer!
pm me with any questions.

I have a brand new set of Denso 630cc injectors and a AEM 340 lph fuel pump that I will throw in with the sale.

This is a pic from the Bemani site of the kit as it was sold


Here are some updated pictures for you guys:

This pic is everything that is included in the sale minus the fuel pump and injectors, I've layed it out as close to the bemani pic above for reference:

Any instructions? Did you ever get a quote for the install? And missing parts cost?
I never did get an instruction booklet unfortunately, if you do some investigation or you can get ahold of DonElise on here you can get something Im sure, DonElise was a certified installer in the L.A area to my understanding.
I would contact any local reputable shop for an install if you don't feel comfortable, I would have done it myself.
missing parts
header--pick a nice one--ppe, 2bular etc. any good quality one will compliment it well---approx. $500-900
header heat shield would have to be made to go with whichever header you choose.
nuts/bolts--$40 roughly
Fuel pump---AEM, Walbro will be sufficient--$100-250
hopefully this helps!

Do you lose the A/C condenser to fit the front heat exchanger?

Also, could you post pics of what you actually have on hand?

I'm very interested in this but have no clue on how to do the install and haven't heard of anyone else having this supercharger.
Before I go calling my "local" dealer, how much could I expect for installation? With a SC like this would you have to upgrade the stock transmission?

You would definitely not need to upgrade the trans, guys run s/c kits on stock transmissions with 300+hp without issue, The clutch may need an upgrade depending on if you have a stock one or not, if you do have a stock clutch it may or may not hold up to the h.p. you'll be making with this kit. You may want to look into a act clutch etc.
Ive seen a ton of different quotes for supercharger installs, guys say anywhere from 6-12 hrs from what ive read, most shops are $80-90 per hour. I would say it would depend on how experienced a shop that is local to you is with lotus'.
I had mentioned DonElise in an earlier post, he is/was a certified Bemani dealer/installer. He has a shop in the L.A. area --949-351-9761
Let me know of anymore questions!
P.m. if you want my phone number to text/call if you'd like.
