Both my stock turbo cars, a 5ktq and a 200q20vt, perform better in the cold 
of winter than in the hot of summer.  I'm sure you're using A/C now because 
you're in Southern MI, where it's even worse than up here in Northern MI 
and I'm using A/C here, and A/C definitely saps some power.  Possibly it's 
more deleterious to chipped engines than stock?
