They're all going to cool less efficiently at that temp. As much as I like Neuspeed products I haven't seen very good reviews for their FMIC. Interesting that you said 38 degC that's the temp that is a warning sign for C19. 100.4 F.
Yeah, I haven't seen great reviews of it either.
What's C19?

How do you know its struggling @anotero logs?
I have my AP mounted, so I can track the IATs when doing pulls. Today it was cooling within 7-13 degC of ambient. Doesn't seem like a stellar result.

Still damn good if u ask me in 100F what are you expecting ambient? I don't think any of them get ambient unless spray. I think anything single digit is good and even better for being 100F my logs at 75 are like 4-6 so i would imagine at 100F 6-15

That's pretty damn good. You're not going to equal ambient temp no matter what IC you have.

I'm expecting single digits Fahrenheit from ambient because Diggs said so a while back! 7-13 degC is definitely not single digits F. :)

Not even trying to. But being 13 degC above ambient seems a lot to me. Then again, I wouldn't be asking here had I known anything. :)

Dbv2 v2 and probably 25-30psi+ Just waiting on Alex to get my tune
Smart man with your turbo choice. You can definitely go higher with the boost.

exactly this. in hotter temps the differential between ambient and IAT will widen. my neuspeed is38 FMIC seems to cool pretty well so no real complaints on IATs although I am curious if it is hampering my flow,
Not if you're IS20 ;).
