Should one undistort each set of calibration images with camera calibration intrinsics before stereo calibration of a pair of cameras?

Question is mostly stated in the title. I have pairs of calibration images, one from each camera. I run camera calibration on the detected chessboard corners in these images, once for the left camera and once for the right camera.

Before stereocalibration, should I now undistort these images and remap the chessboard coordinates using the intrinsics learned from camera calibration? Would this improve the stereo calibration?

no, you shouldn't, it would defeat the purpose of the stereo calibration.

(you also would not need a "single" camera calibration then.)
