No idea about the AMS.. To be honest I think any FMIC would be a big improvement and you'd be happy no matter which you went with. You probably wouldn't notice a world of difference going from company 1 to company 2, as long as it's a well known brand (Helix, AMS, ETS, HPF etc..)

I liked Helix because it didn't require cutting of the front bar, and had a large front face. I also thing the quality is top-notch (not to say the others aren't). I will say that the Helix does weigh a fair bit (probably slightly more than others given its size) so if you're looking at weight reduction, it may be something to consider.. Probably not a big deal, but it all adds up!

Thanks guys, for the advice, seems both would be good for what I want to use my car for (street only).

What sort of cost should I budget for installation?
