Default vf30 map with an sti intercooler? Who's done it?

Has anybody put an upgraded intercooler while using the vf30 93 octane map? I have one but havent installed it yet because the car is running awesome right now and I dont want any funky stuff because I dont plan on getting a protune for a while.

Mods.
vf30
tbe
uppipe
walbro
turbo inlet
pinks

so far, plus I have the sti tmic that i'm debating on installing.

I'm just curious if people experienced any boost issues that threw your cel light on or anything like limp mode..... anything.

And did you feel any performance increase without a tune?

Well i've read some people installing aftermarket tmic's on stock cars that they have boost issues like slow spooling, overboosting, and underboosting. I"ve read a few different posts about it so i'm hoping someone with experience with this exact setup would chime in.

On a cold day, log the calculated load to make sure it doesnt go out of bound. Might need to rescale it.
Normally with a bigger tmic, you'll be able to run higher boost and timimg.
