I was informed that I need a J pipe for my Helix intercooler even though I have a ER Charge Pipe?

Where exactly does the J pipe go?

I was dealing with the same choice and ended ordering intercoolers from ETS (5"). I wanted a 5" and a bolt on with no trimming required and after reading I decided to go with ETS. I liked the fact that ETS cults/bends/welds their intercoolers in house. Going to install in a few weeks!

Went with ETS 5". Live in Carolina & have been pleased with it during the summer heat. Logs show very good heat management. My other choice was Helix but based on where I was taking the cars mods it was not worth the additional cost.

Hey-- if your not going to get into heavy mods but would like to have some constant pull you shoud go with the 7' VRSF FMIC. You will have to trim a littel bit but nothing more then a usual 7' IC. For the buck and what i think your going for the VRSF should be a good fit.
