Air cooled Spindle vs Makita

I have a Shapeoko 3 with z plus
my Makita has been a workhorse and i am happy with it and especially how long it has lasted 3+ Years.
Are there any big advantages to putting in an air cooled spindle?
If there are advantages, what spindles would be highly recommended for the shapeoko3

This was pretty thoroughly discussed here:

Ultimately, I did get a Mafell FM 1000 WS:

but not so much for intrinsic considerations as that I was doing a lot of test cuts and some days it felt as if I spent more time wrenching than cutting. It’s still on my SO3 XL, and I use an ER-11 Carbide Compact Router on my Pro which is where I’ve actually been doing work lately.
