It has been around a while and has several improvements over the Greddy kit. The SBD just recently got updated with a faster spooling turbo similar to a Garrett G-series turbo.

The SBD kit also has a much larger user base and support network. There is a decent Facebook group for the SBD kit as well.
What "improvements" does it have?

Its the same trash. Now they are coming out with a "new intercooler routing just like the greddy V3 kit. Only difference i think just that a bov will be added.

Not much info on the SBD site about the new turbo. The kit is now called the G500x with the upgraded turbo. You would have to check out the SBD FB group for more detailed info.
Noice, yeah not worth it to do something different when there is proven reliability, power, and network for the SBD kit. I have in past couple weeks quickly changed my mind towards the sbd kit

Correct. It isn't as simple as bolting on an SC or turbo. Those guys just end up with endless headaches.
