The only drawback to the Bell cores is the weight. My intercooler weighs right at 30 lbs.

If I did a full bay again, I'd probably use a 3" core to lose some weight. Unless you really want the AC condensor in the back, I'd go full bay so it's as efficient as possible.
Do they do full bays with a thinner core?
