I have never come across any evidence of a tube and fin cooler being more efficient than a bar and plate or vice versa. I have looked. I dont think anyone could give you a definate answer and thats because the difference would be minimal.

They are about the same..One could be better at highway driving as it allows more air though it..
The other will have better heat sink at low speed...
As long as its big enough it doesn't matter ..
Either of those sizes will work...If you are running extreme [25Lb] boost then it would matter...
