im just wondering if the outside temp will affect your boost especially on a stock turbo.

I quess the air density could affect it but not by much since boost is artificial. It starts with air being drawn through the air cleaner, goes to the turbo where it is force fed through the intercooer and into the engine. Right before going into the engine the boost is measured through you boost tube.

Like G-Man said, it will affect a bit but not THAT much :thud: ...have you changed anything? It's possible you have a leak.
