Synchrotech VS Oem Trans Rebuild for Evo 8?

Putting together a stripped car. I'm indecisive as to what to go with. I've read threads, but haven't seen any new posts about the carbon synchros in the last 2 years. How are they compared to the oem ones? Aiming for no more than 500hp, 400tq. I've read that the carbon ones shift better, but last half as long as oem. Can anyone confirm? Want a good balance between fun and reliable.
Side question will the stock trans handle the 500hp?

I agree that they shift faster for sure. They shift really smooth and continue to get better as the trans warms up. Sometimes can be a little notchy when it's really cold out, but it's not all that bad. I plan to stick with the carbon syncros from here on out personally.

I hardly drive my car, but it has to have around 2,000-2,500 miles by now.

Some sources have told me that they last half as long as oem. One source has told me that its the same Oem parts that is just coated. Another source (synchrotech) says that they are manufactured to meet or exceed oem specs. All i need to do is find someone that has a good amount of miles on their rebuilt carbon trans, then ill know for sure if they last long or not.

Would like your feedback on the CC twin after some miles of driving with it.

After the ~2500 miles or so that I've put on it, I have no complaints. Much easier to drive than I expected, and once you get used to it it's a breeze. Definitely noisier than the ACT I had before, but it's not as noisy as a lot of other clutches I've heard in comparison. Seems to handle normal shifting and banging gears just the same, no issue. I really like it so far, and for the price it's hard to beat.
