Helix is the best FMIC you can buy for this car. VRSF 7" is probably the best bang for buck. But honestly any aftermarket FMIC is going to be much better than stock.

There are many good fmic to choose from. Do a search as there lots of posts of peoples opinions and results. The only intercooler the stock one is better than would be if you didn't run one at all.

We've recently introduced the Helix intercooler to our offerings alongside cp-e, ER, AMS and ETS intercoolers. They are all great quality units and can't go wrong either way.
