Hey guys! Just picked up a 2013 A5 2.0T quattro. And when upgrading to a better air intake and catback, do I have to upgrade the intercooler as well to prevent to turbo from overheating from more air coming in or am I good without the intercooler? Thanks!

A turbo only increases heat/IATs from extra boost or poor mapping. The intake won't make any difference to IATs, maybe even reduce if anything than increase!

Upgrade the intercooler only if you have had the car mapped above stage 1/live in a warm climate/damaged stock intercooler. :)
