Just installed 5"ets fmic

Well I finally got around to installing my 5" ets fmic and I'm now running stage 1+ fmic agg. The car feels great. Before installing the new fmic I checked my iat's with the stock fmic with just one 3-4 gear pull I would see my iat's rise about 20 degrees. Now with the new fmic with the same pull I see a 5 degree climb and the recovery is great. When cruising around what should your iat's be above ambient temp? The other day with 30 degree temps outside my iat's were about 45-50 degrees just cruising around. Though when I do sit in traffic they do start to come up because of heat soak. When driving the car hard with some pulls back to back I would say the iat's run about 25-35 degrees above ambient, does this sound about right for the 5" ets fmic?
