T-jet abarth turbo upgrade

Hey all, wonderin if any1 could help me, ive read a few things about doin the t-jet/abarth turbo swap on the GP's. But im still a lil confuddled, can i jus swap it, reset the ECU n then carry as normal until i can get a remap or is it gonna be lumpy as ****? and do i need ter get an intercooler fer it aswell?
One last thing, whats the reliabitlity like cus i dont really wanna be fannyin around with it every 30 miles.
cheers

Yes you can just swap it and reset the ECU. But for best performance you need a Remap too.

No it will work with standard intercooler.

Dont even need to reset the ECU will adjust itself.

You'll need to check when the next one is, for the money you get the re-map and 2 rolling road sessions (1 before and one after), plus a computer read-out showing the gains.
