If he thinks because of the inter-cooler turbo pipe is heating up the battery then yes, it could be the cause. Some vehicles have a temperature sensor at the battery for measuring heat at the battery, not sure on yours tho.

Battery light is always an issue with the charging system. I would suspect the wiring, alternator or voltage regulator. I'd get a second opinion.
