If you want to I'd HIGHLY RECOMEND the Jackson Racing SC. It makes great power and we have multiple cars in Norcal86 who are running this setup and loving it. I haven't personally seen any problems arise from the kit. One of the benefits of this kit is that JR released a high boost pulley which with e85, upgraded fuel pump, and 700cc injectors reached 370whp. All in all if I were to run any kit it would be the JR because if I wanted a reliable street tune they have it, if I wanted to go more HP they have a higher boost pulley available as well.

That being said, I would still also consider the HKS setup. But the SBD value is very, very hard to beat.

All depends on your intended use right. Track, autocross, street, high hp, etc?

They value of the SBD turbo kit is what really sets it above the rest of the FI kits. The JRSC that I just suggested is a great kit but almost cost $2k more than the SBD kit. It is all personal preference though depending on what you are looking for and your budget.

My reason for narrowing it down to HKS and SBD is because I have a very high quality well known shop who specializes in HKS parts (JoTech) and also work on SBD products so I have a shop I know personally who are well equipped to work with these. They are even a HKS Pro-Dealer I believe.

In that case if the shop has experiences with installing, tuning, and maintaining both the HKS and SBD kits then I would try to talk to people around who have also had their kits installed by that shop. I know most people are going to tell you that supercharger kits will be more reliable but some kits can be equally reliable. The reason people will say turbo kits are less realiable is because there are a lot more parts, and moving parts, that can fail. Either way you go, you will have to pay close attention to the status of your car and the parts to run it safely. I know I am probably sending you in circles but research is always the best option before deciding on either kit and it all comes down to what you want to do.

I'm thinking I'll just talk to the owner of the shop next time I'm up that way and see what he thinks. As well researching the forum and this thread. Just want to make sure I make the right choice

I considered having them build my old GTR and I agree Chris is a great guy and very easy to deal with. As far as my uses I want a reliable daily that may eventually turn into a high horse build. Thus another reason I'm considering turbo over supercharger because if I wanted high hp I could just swap the turbo and build the motor

Jotech is indeed a HKS Pro-Dealer, good choice! Is your car a manual or auto?

Its between hks and sbd for me as well I want turbo noise but I like the idea of a supercharger for reliability to we will wait and see once the v3 kit is more tested it seems like the v3 kit is harder to install I have heard it needs a bit of cutting maybe this summer I will choose one.

yes but its their version 3, which i believe comes with fuel injectors and fuel pump to make that much power. the larger piping and less bends alows for the v2 and v3 kit to have more boost with the same pulley i use on my v1 kit.

my choice was simple, i love turbos and the power they make, but dont have much experience with them personally. i chose the hks compressor kit because you are doubling the cars whp and i expected things to go wrong with the car based off of that. the hks kit has provided me with the power im looking for and much less of a headache. i keep suggesting to everyone that is going to introduce boost to upgrade your valve springs. those babies can be fully depressed with my fingers when we pulled them out. a spring also snapped hence why i rebuilt.
