The motor is basically the Acura CL-Type S motor. Like any other 1992 Honda, you would want a good maintenance history for starters. They'll last forever when properly cared for. A compression test on this one would be a good way to see the internal condition of the motor. The motor can handle the supercharger if properly tuned. Find out what the vehicle is tuned on, and how conservative the tune is (i.e. try to find out what their target Air/Fuel ratio @ WOT was when they tuned it).

The Comptech S/C kits for the NSX are around $7000 if you look for them on the forums ($8500-9500 if you can find new ones). After some quick searching on eBay and other websites, it looks like Comptech Supercharged NSXs are being sold for $40-45,000 ($41k for a 1991, and $45k for a 2001). The highest I've seen is $60,000 for a Comptech S/C 1999 NSX with only 16,000 miles, and it has all the other Comptech bolt-on mods as well.

The prices of the early NSXs (in stock form) are coming down pretty quick to the high teens for really tired ones, to mid 20s for medium condition, to low 30s for super clean early 90s NSXs.

Basically, as long as a compression test checks out, and the supercharger was installed and tuned by a reputable shop, you should be good mechanically speaking as long as the owner took care of the care and understood what regular maintenance Supercharged/Turbocharged vehicles require. I wouldn't put down more than $45,000 as if you just bought a 91 NSX, and had the same supercharger installed, you probably would be looking at a similar or less price.

If you're interested, here's a great read on the Comptech Supercharger: Comptech SC
