This is my first summer with my s4 and it runs hard as hell, but when it is humid it seams to have no where near the power it usualy does. Tonight after she warmed up i was on the highway and it felt very fast but after about 10 minutes it seamed like it lost a significant amount of power. Is this just heat soaking bc of the weather? Im assuming so but any opinions would be appriciated. Thank you.
btw it was 97% humidity, car has GIAC 93 tune and borla cat back.

Completely normal with turbo cars... especially with the S4's tiny and crappy side mount IC's.
Upgrade your IC's if you want better 'hot' weather performance.
