I would have ER as my first choice and Helix as my 2nd. A FMIC is next in the mod list for me. But idk if it's worth the $$$? Cuz I never track my car. I just drive spiritedly ever once in a while.

ER or Helix. ER replaces the plastic piping.

Another option to look at is meth vs FMIC. Meth is cheaper and when you use it your $1,000 dollar intercooler is pretty much useless.

I'm probably set on getting an ER FMIc put in pretty soon. I stopped by the shop last week and the owner gave me a little tour of the place and showed me a bunch of their FMIC's. They have some high quality stuff there and I ended up upgrading just my CP. Can't speak too much about it but I'll let you know as soon as I get it installed!

Looks like ER is a winner.

Helix is currently having a group buy on their FMIC. Lowest prices ever. Check out the sponsors thread. Then turbo section.

I put my deposit down and will be installing very very soon.
