Intercoolers - Which is better / black or silver / Tube & Fin or Bar & Plate

Interesting video trying to debunk the myth about which is better black or silver and general explanation of intercoolers and their construction types.

But there seems to a fair bit of debate online regarding this issue on color and construction type:

My two questions:
1. Which is better black or silver
2. Which is better tube and fin (Mountune FMIC construction) or bar and plate (Cobb FMIC construction) to name a couple of vendors and the construction types they use.

Just gonna leave this here:
Test on the highest HP genesis coupe in the world!
That is a bar/plate design BTW.

This is why you are the best razor, thank you for the data and actual numbers. I knew I read that thread awhile ago which made me pull the trigger on the Mishi J-Line but I couldnt find it (either im bad at coming up with search terms or dumb) otherwise I wouldve linked it.
