i plan on getting an APR chip soon, will a fmic help increase power too? or will it just hurt me with a stock k03 and being chipped?

Yes it will help, but make sure you go with one that is designed for a K03/K04. If you go too big then it will hurt performance.

what if it wasn't chipped, would a fmic still help?

yes it will still help. keep IAT (intake air temps cooler) but on a non chipped ko3 car it will be hardly noticeable.

It will be noticable if it is designed for a K03. If the core is too big and the K03 can't fill it you will experience more lag. I wouldn't worry about it too much with only a K03. I would put my money somewhere else first.

Most of the time there is, that is if you dont get a error message.

This brings me to my next point ---->

It wont give you that much more power, it will help your car keep from loosing power during hot days and long drives. Heatsoak is a turbo cars worst enemy..
