Love my spearco/code3. It actually has the largest core volume of any of the FMICs listed.

Helix, because it will look somewhat like this on a M3 front bumper

No the Code3 has a considerably larger core volume than the AA. The Helix is also larger, but not quite as large as the Code3 in terms of volume. The AA and Stett have a large front surface area, however the actual core volume is not as large as you would imagine. Core volume matters, particularly when it is shaped (ie not pancake shaped) in a matter to allow maximal flow (for lower pressure drop).

I am sorry but most will disagree. Face area is critically important in an effective intercooler. The adding a lot of depth to a core is normally only done because there are height limitations.
