Run it hard enough and you may reduce that effect, but by that point, the ship has long sailed on the usefulness of an FMIC.

I guess WRX/STI drivers wont be the only ones carrying ice bags.
The N55 already run hotter than most engines,In a cramped engine the water can easily be heat soaked especialy at low speed high rpm situations with AC on in the A2L unless the water is circulated through an ice tank or iced down.
