best intercooler for 1M

Obviously there have been previous threads about this, but I think there have been some developments out there.

I'm inclined to get the forge one, but this is the feedback I received from a shop in Houston:

"that intercooler requires cutting the boot off the turbo side charge pipe. are you ok with that?"

what are the best choices in the market? how about ETS?

thanks

ETS requires the boot be removed. Forge uses the factory clips.

I have the forge and can attest to the fact that nothing needs to be cut. Uses factory clips, as previously mentioned, and fits right in.

I have the ETS 5" and nothing needed to be cut.

Not from the core support or bumper cover, but the clamp holding the rubber connector from the turbo outlet to the FMIC inlet does.
