I think you would need to compare the returns of your IRA fund and see how it tracks to the S fund. The S fund tracks the Wilshire 4500 Completion Indes, and has been making about 17% for the past 12 months, expense ratio of about .5%, so if your other fund is doing better than that, even minus the costs, I'd stick with that. Otherwise, why not move whatever you want into the TSP? The only downside I can think of is once you move it into the TSP, it's there for the duration unless you quit or retire.
