I'm talking temperatures of below 0* F. I noticed that I only get 8-10 pounds of boost at WOT when it's this cold out. Just wondering if I may have a leak or if that's normal.

Maybe I'll take a road trip to Florida or Texas to see if I get normal boost in nice temperatures. :lol:

I think the ECU will adjust boost depending on temp, alt, humidity, etc.
I guess the norm would be 14 psi in say 50-70 degree weather. Boost might jump a bit at say 85 degrees. And boost would be lower in colder conditions. Through most conditions, power should be about the same even tho ur not actually boosting as much.
