bottom end gone

hi only bought my 54 plate wrx last friday from a garage ,come saturday night the bottom end has gone lucky for me the garage gave me 1 months warranty ,so they picked it up and took it to a garage who confirmed it was the bottom end ,they are going to rebuild it and replace the cambelt while they are at it my question is does it need remapping once done and having the new parts on will this effect any of the old parts ...
