      Reasons why I like our 4-bet/call (although the 4bet size can be smaller):

      - 6 max
      - CO vs BTN
      - not a full stack

      Preflop I'd most likely make it something like $2.8 at most (since he did make a larger 3-bet Ip).

      If he had a full stack, would you still go with the hand in this situation.

      Yes, considering that we are still CO vs BTN and 6max I would.

      A lot of the value of 4-betting comes from him folding his 3-bet and thus we collect the pot. And when he does shove we have enough equity to call (unless he only shoves Kk+ which is rare at best).
