Hey everyone, new to how to things work here so bear with me
Here's the story:
Car is 100% stock.
I live in Las Vegas, it gets really hot here, however it's still in the 80's right now. Even so I've been noticing my boost gauge is only spooling up to about 3/4 of it's capacity. The car feels slow, as if there is almost no boost. I thought maybe it was a problem with my intake or something.
Then I drove to L.A. where the air was cool, dense and humid. Suddenly my boost was spinning at full rpm's and I was reminded of just how fast my sweet sweet ride can be. It was amazing, my lately tired-feeling 2.0L was it's old self again and I was back grabbing gears, loving life. I've realized the air here in the desert is just too thin and hot to produce good spool.
SO my question is, what are some realistic minor changes I can make to get cooler air into the motor? I've heard a lot of mixed opinions with CAI's.
