Default Smaller TMIC Ruin My Car?

My car has been street tuned with a large eBay TMIC. Previous owner put on the TMIC and I just picked up a 06 TMIC to replace it.

Wondering if I can drive my car safely for a few thousand miles with the STi intercooler installed without issues for the time being.

Current mods:

2004 STi long block
VF34 turbo
650CC injectors
Tial 44mm EWS
GrimmSpeed BSC
Ebay TMIC

Power:

255WHP at 91oct

I think I'll be fine with the smaller TMIC for the time being but not 100% sure.

Thoughts?

nobody would know for sure except the person who tuned it, but from a fundamental standpoint it only really matters at very high boost, like 75% peak and up

so if it were me and I wasn't sure I would stay at 50% boost or less and then I'd know I'm fine

I'm 99.999999% sure your car will run better with the STI intercooler considering the VF34. You won't need a tune from swapping one TMIC for another.
