    Ambient temp/humidity and turbo

    Howdy,
    I've had my 2010 Limited now for about 1300 miles and have recently noticed that the turbo doesn't seem to spool (give as much boost) as it did in the weeks after purchase. Could this simply be a function of ambient temperature and humidity? It has been running around 90+ F and 85% humidity recently down here in Texas.

    Yes. Forced induction is more effective with cool dry air.
