Depending on what you’re looking for a bigger intercooler may or may not benefit you as Michael Baxi explains here at 1:51 and his closing thoughts at 12:31. but all are high quality products.
This could be a dead thread at this point but if people are still interested on which route to go, I did the calculations below.

Stock - 26.77 * 5.63 * 2.52 = 379.802052 cu/in

PRL - 26.5 * 3.5 * 7.25 = 672.4375 cu/in

Perrin - 26 * 3.15 * 8.5 = 696.15 cu/in

Mishimoto - 28 * 7.6 * 4.7 = 1,000.16 cu/in

The Perrin has a slightly more surface area than the PRL but not by much. The reason why Baxi felt the lag is most likely due to how big the Mishimoto Intercooler is in comparison.

If it were up to me, I would go with whoever is giving the better deal between PRL and Perrin. Both excellent products.

Size literally means almost nothing.

Sorry for bumping, but I recently got the mod bug for my fk8. Just bought the Perrin for $578 using johnnys code on page 1. Still active.

I had my mind set on PRL especially given the cool stencil with the red R, but they’re out of stock for two weeks, and well, Perrin is on sale.

I don’t like the fact Perrin FMIC needs to cut out some of the splash guard, but they already had me drill out a hole in my fog light cover for the plate relocate. 🤷‍♀️😂

*planning on PRL charge pipes cross pollination as well.
