S3 IC + FMIC or is it too much

I m running a k04 with S3 IC currently , been thinking should i add a FMIC to reduce the chances of heatsoak but am afraid it might cause some lag ?

Did someone run similar setup ?
Pros and cons ?
The temp here is always around 33c btw.

i was running a slightly different setup. Had a golf r intercooler + forge twintercooler. Didnt really like it. Temperatures were abit high still and heat soak sucked big time sine now its 2 IC being heat soaked. Switched up to Armed fmic and no complaints as of now. temps are lower for sure

get a custom FMIC and you won't have to worry about lag.

Wagner...1057 ci volume

BUT! If I already had the s3, I would look simply into a WMI setup even if just for cooling. Only way you'll ever get below ambient temps.
