It may not end up as big a deal in SR2.0, but I wouldn't lower it just yet.
But does it get used at all as-is? If it’s not being used, I’d still say the cost ought to be lowered, otherwise why have it as an option?

My point on the gear swap option is that I don't think I've ever seen anyone use it. I have thought about it multiple times, but it always seemed too pricey - though I did assume it would be a like-for-like swap (laser rifle for laser rifle, light body armor for light body armor, etc.)

Re: Adventure Inc.

I just remembered that the advice in the forthcoming GMG for Savage Rifts will include using HJ rolls for GMs to customize the power balance in their games. Maybe no rebalancing would be needed, then, for an extra HJ roll, per RAW.

Which is to say, I'd be down with an extra roll.

What do you guys think of a setting rule that gives humans an extra HJ roll on a table of choice? VV I could see that, but additions should probably be balanced by a Hindrance. Another option would be to just grant humans an extra advance at character creation, so they’d be starting at the equivale...

And, yes, you can use Psionics inside power armor in SWADE at a -4 penalty (-2 if the face plate is removed).
