is it true when the temp outside is below 30f that your car will boost about 5 pounds less than usaull?
cause i noticed in my gti that when the temp outside it over 40 the car spikes 25 26 psi and holds 20 to 22 psi .
now when its around 30f it spikes 21 22 psi and hold 16 psi !
does anybody else notice this with their cars???

It might regester as "less boost", however, cold is GOOD!
Cold makes the oxygen & gas denser=More HP!
That's one of the reasons why Nitrous Oxide Injection works.
