I haven't seen any numbers to say that one HE performs better than another but, visually, the BMS HE appears to have less surface area than the AMS. The Mishimoto might be a good balance between surface area and price.

Thickness matters too. The thicker the HE the more it can absorb heat. I don't like the AMS because the car already has enough exchangers and crap shoved in there and I don't want that thing blocking the entire face of the radiator.

If I were to do it again, I would do BMS. My Frozen Boost 101 works great but it wasn't plug and play.

There was ONE mod that we had to do for the BMS. There's a plastic side piece that directs airflow up to the HE and radiator. We had to trim an opening for the coolant line to run through. You essentially shorten/remove an extension water hose that is routed from the HE, but it was SUPER easy to do so otherwise I would call it plug and play.
