It's my understanding that if all you're doing is the pipes you don't need to do anything else. Personally, I put pipes on mine, not atom bombs, and I have done nothing else and have no issues, only popped 1 time and that was cold and I had to do some cage avoiding and noticed a pop. When I get around to doing a filter swap then I'll look into a programer.
