Default FMIC vs TMIC? give me the pro's and con's

First off I searched! Now with that out of the way:

When I bought my 02 wrx it came with a FMIC installed. I didn't think much of it, as I planned on going with a rotated setup, but I have changed my mind and decided just to do a vf39 set-up. So in comes the question.

Right now I know the front mount is an overkill with the stock turbo, but from what I have been told it is actually robbing me of power due to turbo lag and other things. Is this true?

Also when I switch to a vf39 I was thinking of just doing a top-mount, but will the front mount be alright or will I run into the same issues as I do now?

How does the top mount differ from the front mount as far as lag, and performance?
