...or, you could just get the best one on the market:


Helix is bigger in the right places (much larger exposed ambient face, 13 charge rows with rounded ambient and charge row bars), bolts on with no trimming, has higher fin density>better air control and has been pushed to 627hp on Shivs car, so no fear of any power ceiling.

Here's a pic of the Helix next to the AMS which is similar in size to the HPF, please notice the ambient face and amount of charge rows above the mounting brackets as this is whats exposed to the ambient airflow and is what can be seen in the front of the car!

As for trimming the shroud, I don't think it is a big deal when returning the car. To those of you who have done it, is it noticeable from outside?
I have a 2011 IS and the Wagner is what I went with for that exact reason. Totally worth it. No trimming whatsoever for Wagner FMIC install. None.

RPI does not require any trimming and uses the stock connections. 15 min install once the car is in the air.

Thanks for all the great responses, I never even hear of some of these. So for the fmic's that replace the stock tubing can it be reversed back to stock or do you have to replace parts to do so?

You can put it back to stock easily.
