I have a temp sensor just behind the throttle body as a consequence of
the EFI system, so I have an idea that the inlet temps are not as bad as
I originally thought. Then again, I may not have an accurate temp
sensor (I'm not convinced of this part's accuracy and response time yet -
I'm looking into a better one) and I'm only running 14psi currently,
which is below the turbo's peak efficiency from what I understand from Scott.

I have to think about this for a minute, but doesn't temperature and
pressure completely define the density of a gas in terms of variables?
Bob Myers? PV=nRT so I think so.
I guess humidity would lower the oxygen density, which would make the
charge less efficient.
Next time I get a few minutes to actually tinker with my car, I'll toss
in a couple thermocouples, and put this one to bed, at least in my
