FMIC + ER Charge?

So the first thing I purchased before anything else was an ER Charge Pipe for the car. I wanted to hedge against the horror stories, and since I've recommended to other N55 drivers that the ER charge pipe should be their first investment.

Now with the release of the Cobb AP, and the Stage 1+ right around the corner, I am wanting to go ahead and invest in an upgraded FMIC. I'd like to avoid cutting if at all possible, and I read in other threads that the Helix requires no cutting.

What I need to make sure of is whether the ER Charge Pipe and the Helix FMIC will be a good fit and will mean that I won't have to do any cutting? If not, or if there is a higher recommended FMIC, I'm open to suggestions.

I've done some searching here and on Bimmerforums, but haven't found any info to my specific question, and not much in the way of recommendations for a FMIC.
