In theory, the colder your air intake temperature the denser it is and the more it can put through the engine, creating the potential for more power

The denser and more compact the air, the more 02 that gets rammed into your cylinders which is more combustible which adds power. Like spyder said, thats the theory but if you're gonna do that i would definately get a Mass Air Flow Calibrator and map your engine for maximum efficiency and power.

It can probably wait. I dont think waiting on a re-map will do any damage, you just wont get your full potential. If you're getting a SC then i woudl probably just wait and get it all done at once. Although i am no expert so if someone knows what they are doing and tell you differently just ignore me and listen to them

If you really plan to get URD's S/C, dont worry about getting the MAF calibrator because the kit will come with a different kind of calibrator.
