Red Coolant Light+Now power=?. currently stranded :(

So I was driving to pick up my date for tonight, took a hard left and I immediately noticed my throttle wasn't responding. A few seconds later the yellow coolant light came on so I started pulling over, then the coolant light turned red. Pulled over turned off the car. After a few minutes I tried going again and the same thing happened. There was two younger guys walking by me so I offered them 10$ a piece to help me push it to the gas station about two blocks away lol. So now I'm sitting here waiting for AAA to bring a flat bedbed (hour and a half wait, WTF) so my question is what possibly broke and how much should expect it to be if cpo doesn't cover it? I'm slightly modded so I'm not sure if they'll honor it.

Fast and Furious reference? Take the tune out for sure, intercoolers are touch and go depending on the dealer, but I would lol hard if they tried to attribute a blown waterpump and thermo to a more efficient intercooler.

Yes! Thank you for catching it. I've already taken the tune out, I'm going to call my SA tomorrow and ask him about the intercooler, been going to this guy for years and always goes the extra mile for me so I'm hoping he'll let it slide.
