    It won't necessitate keep the engine cool. It's all about consistant low intake temps. And no remap needed, car will run as it does in winter with minimal change to the drive.

    You do not require a remap, but to get the full benefits it does require a remap

    Iíd say itís a worthwhile mod to do on its own as the standard intercooler isnít that brilliant and the charge temperatures over ambient can often be fairly high. Something which an aftermarket cooler helps keep under control.

    Obviously a remap would get the best out of it but that can be said for any bolt on mod you do e.g. a full exhaust system.

    I wouldnít let the P4 issue put me off tuning my burg once the warranty is up. Itís more thermal shock that causes it so look after your car, keep it well serviced and make sure itís warmed up and cooled down properly and it shouldnít give issues. But if itís going to go then itís going to go there isnít much you can do and as said standard ones have failed too.
