            surely having 2 intercoolers in place will make the cooling better?

                    its only 1 cooler you re-route pipes to new intercooler take it out if you find it easy enough might help a bit with cooling cause more air can get to rad/engine saves a bit of weight aswell but if your planning to put it back to standard when your selling you might aswell leave it in

                        Take the std one out when you are happy with your new setup ( ie. IC ) and this should improve slightly the airflow through the remaining rads, therefore helping to cool your engine down via the water rad.

                            Not really and you dont have to disconnect the aircon condenser btw if you are careful.
