the tune will be your reflash, your tuner will reflash your E.C.U. therefore you will not need an EM like cobb or utec. You may however might want to consider getting one of them to help you monitor your car.

No upgraded inter cooler?? or fuel pump? and no tune as your car is minus the turbo pulley's and injectors???

For a Big 16g? Nope. You are running your car with all these mods with no tune?

X amount of psi is not equal to the same amount of psi on the stock TD04. So you definitely should get an upgraded fuel pump.

Intercooler sizing doesn't have much to do with exterior temperature. Sure it's related but your engine gets plenty hot even if you live at the north pole. Also, chicago summer days get plenty damn hot.
