    Fitting a decent free flow and larger inter-cooler will not harm the vehicle in way my view. It will remove the engine heat quicker, increasing performance and also improving reliability.

    PS: Does the bakkie have a freeflow exhaust on, with a decent sized down pipe from the turbo? It will help the heat escape faster.
