Default Turbulent flow in Porous Media - which models?

I want to simulate flow in a channel partially filled with a porous medium and partially with clear fluid using Fluent.

I need to choose two turbulence models (one can be k-epsilon, for example) and compare them. Which ones would you recommend and why?

I know Fluent's way of dealing with turbulence in porous media isn't excellent, but that's not very important. The key of my study will be the comparison of the two methods.
