A buddy of mine at the NAMM show, just picked up the Floyd Rose Original Tremolo unit for me. Is it compatible with the Ibanez SA 160? Is it an improvement over the stock Ibanez (SAT30) unit?

No its not mate.

The SA series have a vintage style trem.

Though most RGs with the older Edge III allow for a direct replacement iirc.

Check the setup guide in the stickies in EG and there is a list of what trems swap with what.
