thermal expansion...exactly how cold is it? your waist gate may be actualy changing sizes on you. also cold causes eratic turbo behavior in some cases. look at your filter make sure your not colecting ice on it...also your intercooler...if its iced over it can mess things up.
Slide you ride!!
People say my car is a "waist of money" but i cant hear them over my BOV and HKS exhaust!

its all DENSITY... the reason u add innnercoolers and CAI is too make the air in ur enigne colder thus denser this more able to hold a throttle pull

when it gets hot the air becomes less dense and thas why ur boost drops
