Mike, how does the Wagner Tuning EVO 1 Competition and EVO 2 Competition ICs compare against the stock FMIC in terms of pressure drop, air flow, and lag?

Like any other intercooler it depends on the mods you have installed on the car

Assume stock powertrain.

And at most (in the future), maybe a M2-like tune along with catless DP.

Thats a big jump in power.

5" would be best for stock, 6" would be better for Tune + DP

My understanding is that the M2 (Stage 0+) is a relatively mild tune (for an N55)...?

It is and add downpipe thats another 10 HP , you can get away with the 5" but 6" will get you better performance.

So, who makes a good tube and fin style FMIC? It seems the ER and the Wagner are both bar and plate style.
