1st time at track: intake question

I will be tracking my car next month and wondering if I should keep the dci or switch it back to stock air box. I have procede v5. It'll only be couple sets of 25 min runs. Ambient temp around 80-90.
Any suggestions?

I've tracked my car many times with a DCI and never had issues.

Doesn't the car suffer from heat soak? What range of IAT is optimal before the car starts losing power through heat soak?

Here in Florida, go back to stock airbox, bring boost down a bit. What dates are you going and which track?

Yeah, I am going to change back to stock air box. I'm going to PBIR on march 10th with HOD (hooked on driving).
