    This is the very first time I'm seeing that watch.
    I have a friend who actually bought the snuggie.

    Bigger hood scoop and better air divertor plates help along with heat wrapping aftermarket downpipes and turbo blankets.Heatsoak only really is a problem in stop and go traffic.Once your moving it goes away.

    Do you drive your car on a daily basis ? Mine feels like it compensates for the weather change.

    Yup every single day..

    Last night it was about 62 degrees....my car felt like a beast

    When its around 75+, it feels slow as hell, and my turbo takes longer to spool

    I got in my car earlier for work and it was reading 93 out, i could deff. feel the lag and how it hesitates when its hot...last night it was average like 83 out and 83 feels a hell of alot better than 93, so anything below 75 for me would feel amazing

    We had a severe heat warning today. And it was only 96!

    However, for some reason my car has been getting damn good gas mileage. I have a quarter tank left and have gone 300 miles already. Definitely excited.
