  It won't cool the pistons down directly.  The oil won't heat up that 
much without the jets, so cooling won't do a lot.  It'll help but not much
if you plan on running high boost and EGT's.  Intercooler WILL help but 
these turbos don't generate all that hot of intake temps until you get 
close to 6 psi and above.  Only two problems with an intercooler... 
You tend to turn the fueling up even MORE and it's hard to find room 
to plumb one in.
