    The Wednesday Breakfast Club met this morning. We had 8 cars present one of which was Karl Johnson’s newly installed Edelbrock super charger.

    Everyone got a ride. It went like a scared cat.

    When you look under the hood it appeared stock. Very neat like a jewel.

    Good luck Karl. Wishing you many happy miles.

      For a guy who fixes jet engines for a living, he needed more thrust.

    NA Jackson Racing Supercharger to NB 2000 Miata? 

    Can I install a used NA Jackson Racing Supercharger on my NB 2000 Miata? Would there be any issues due to engine differences? Can you guys recommend a good mechanic in the Miami area to have it installed? Thanks for your help.

      While it physically possible to mount the NA supercharger to the NB motor, there are some issues that will complicate everything else.

      There are two versions of the Jackson Racing unit, a M45 and a M60 unit. The M45 unit is too small for the 1.8 motor. If this unit for the NA 1.8, there are some differences in the throttle bodies and electronics.

      A Megasquirt or other stand alone engine management units will solve a lot of the issues with adapting the NA style supercharger to the NB, but your are then talking about adding an additional $1,000.

      Answer the following questions and I will recommend you a path to modify your car:
      How much HP do you wish to make?

      How do you plan to use the car (Daily driver, fun weekend only car, track car, etc.)?

      Do you intend on keeping the A/C, power steering etc.?
