You, Ross and several others on this list, seem to understand this very
well.  But; some folks tend to get hung up on boost and forget about the
charge density.  I think this is the first time I've seen a post that
includes temps before and after the IC.  (thanks Ross) Any one else have a
temp guage? How about some numbers from other turbo/IC configurations.
Include ambient temp, humidity, absolute barometer, temp and pressure
before and after the IC, so we can see how much air (density not pressure)
is really available to the motor. Some of you might be surprised to find
out you aren't getting what you think you are.  For example at high
altitude more compression of the air is needed to get a given boost which
means more temp and less density.  (see recent "nerdy" :) post by scott who
also understands this very well)

Again, thanks for sharing Ross.
