Which FMIC?

Hey all i am on the market for a new intercooler for my 2010 e92 and i have narrowed my selections down (i think) to either an evolution racewerks one or a helix one. Is there anyone that has had both of these and can tell me if one is better then the other? Im also open to other suggestions if you think a different manufacturer would be a better choice but from everything i have read so far it seems like these 2 are the best. Any help would be appreciated!

i assume you have a 335 if you're looking for a FMIC. you will find better responses on the 335 section. just sayin...

I had a 335i so I'll chime in...

I had a Helix step FMIC and it performed well

My friends had the spearco intercooler which is IMO better

the STETT is also great, but you need to cut part of the bumper IIRC

CP-E is also a good alternative

I wouldn't do ETS as, at least when I was looking into it a couple years ago, they were too small and not worth the $.

Good luck
