Hit up some of the SCed 7th gen guys like:

04accordcpe
sleekAV6
nighthawk

I figure you will have to do some customization with radiator or at least a turn down upper radiator hose. Cost of installation if your not doing it yourself, and tuning equipment and actual costs of tuning, so around 1k

If it comes with "everything" like you say, and you know about the radiator issue, then about the only thing you need is a smaller R51 battery if it's not included off the wrecked car and the installation. Now if you are missing parts, obviously you would need to purchase replacement parts from Comptech. Since it's coming out of a wrecked car, I hope it's from an 04+ TL or Accord right? if not, it won't fit.

Other things to consider if you want a "drivable" supercharged Accord:
1. Replace the ACM fuel management in the kit with a Greddy Emanage or other piggyback system and tune it like Accord V6 400m said. ~$700-$1000
2. You'll need the FPR crush tool since it most likely won't be included. ~$60? from comptech, or ask for one of ours ;)
3. New 2 step colder spark plugs and drive belt. ~$100
4. Since your auto, a transmission cooler is highly recommended. ~$100
5. Fluids: coolant and tranny oil if installing transmission cooler.
6. Gauges to monitor your car. ~$200-$1000 depending on what you get.

You're looking at spending atleast another $300 or so before even being ready to install the SC and anywhere from ~$1000-$???? + installation to have it fully tuned.

But in my opinion it's well worth it!!! $1850 is a steal for the SC as long as it's under 50k miles. Hope this helps!

Yea the supercharger only has 8000 miles put on it and i have already purchased a tranny oil coller for just a random add on mod. Guage wise i will go cheap i dont want nething expensive and tuning where is a good place for me to tune it? I mean that seems almost more expensive then the whole thing i plan to install my self doesnt seem to hard to do. and yes it is off an 04 tl. Just so i am clear on the Greedy emanage i cant jsut tune it that is something that i need? Lastly where do you buy a new custom radiator or mod the original to fit. Battery doesnt matter i get free car batterys for life.

Definitely a good deal on the SC then. Tuning... depends where you are and what dyno/tuners are around you, can't help you there if you aren't in So Cal. You can street tune the Emanage or any other piggyback yourself (I do this to fine tune my car after it was set on the dyno), I would recommend to have it dyno tuned first because it's impossible for you to drive and fine tune at the same time, plus you don't want to risk blowing your engine in the middle of nowhere while trying to tune your car. A custom radiator can be ordered through Griffin like 04Accordcpe, or you can go to a radiator shop and ask them to modify an all aluminium replacement radiator like I did. If you want to re-use the stock radiator, I believe you have to modify the bottom radiator mounts to lower the radiator enough for the top hose to clear the radiator, a few supercharged guys did that. The cost for the 3 methods are descending in that same order.

Griffin radiator?

Everyone keeps saying, "you can get a custom radiator from Griffin" but do you have to contact them and explain your situation or is there a part number for this particular rad?
