It was only the early LPTs didn't. Later ones where the APC (Trionic cars I think) was no longer seperate had the intercooler, and a ECU swap effectively brings them to full power. But yes, if no intercooler, increased intake temps from higher boost will cause detonation, in extremes, blown headgaskets at best. At worst, melted pistons. -- Carl Robson Car PC Build starts again.
