Low boost when warmed up?

Postby Curry » Sun Jul 29, 2012 1:05 am

So this evening I left work it was pretty cool and humid out about 70*F. I noticed as I left the car was very peppy to say the least. It was quickly able to hit 5-6lbs in 2nd, 3rd and 4th. I figured it was because of the weather.

Halfway home the car is already up to temp so I try to see what the car does in 2nd and 3rd once I get off the highway and it felt like it was struggling to make the boost. It hit 5 but I felt like i had to force it.

Could this be because of those insane engine bay temps?

Prol heat soaked intercooler , full run the intercooler pump and/or upgrade it. A fan on the intercooler would help also ....
