And refrain yourselves from any kind of further mods to engine, as it may hamper the reliability in the long run.
Wish you many more miles of safe and happy motoring.

And it has nothing to do with radiator or intercooler. Radiator and intercoolers are filled with coolants. A high performance coolants will do the trick.
Thanks a lot Guys for your valuable suggestions:
1.) I guess 37000 kms in just 15 months is a good milage I have achieved, its like around 3000 kms per month. I was out of country for around 40 days or so.
2.) Would like to install RD box only if no ECM patch will not be released by TML for increase power and more drivability.
3.) Yes engine would tend to heat up a bit more if I will go for P2 mode which has 30% more power and torque figures over a sustained longer usage. But I have plans to use it only in P1 mode to get more drivability and highway crusing.
Infact I have plans to change the engine oil at 10000 kms not as prescribed 15000 kms. As my daily driving in Delhi Gurgaon Delhi Jams.
4.) To keep the engine cool we need a good quality COOLANT and regular change of mineral Oil. As due to a bit of extra heat oil will tend to loose its sheen a bit earlier than its desired 15000 kms interval.
But for now its all going fine and the vehicle needs a good underbody wash and anti rust coating before rains. SO I might go for it in the coming weekend at ABS
Note: Even in this 46 degree summer my car is keeping me super chill at medium AC and 2 speed. with a healthy average of 13-14 kmpl.
