Yeah I get it. I can’t speak for how the gas affects power. I’ve always known turbo vehicles to be much better on power in cold weather due to air density and the mileage gets worse at the same time. Whether that’s from the additional power or the crud gas is for more interested people than me to figure out.
Agreed in regards to forced induction liking cold air. Well in reality the cooler and more dense(more oxygen)the air is, the more it will require additional fuel. Hence more power! Hot air is normally a leaner A/F ratio. Eh class dismissed!

Sad thing is I have had everything bought almost 2 years ago . Was just sitting in garage. Garret I bought in Feb of 2020. I left truck stock until I saw gen 3 and trx and after the reveal when I decided to put the mods on.

So will runs be made on Stg 1 with just the addition of the new IC?

We’re you thinking of a Gen 3 or TRX until you found out what powertrains, options, price came out and changed your mind?

FWIW I was wrong and it’s the summer gas that’s crappier. Normal cars get worse mileage off of it but a turbo car will just pull performance and actually get better mileage And worse power. Winter gas and colder air is the double whammy on a turbo for performance and worse mileage.

That exactly makes sense and is exactly what’s going on. Good find.

I've gotten that code ever since I put the BBk TB on my truck... what is the fix? It happens rarely these days but it does happen.
