Anyone else's cars acting weird lately?

Cruising around yesterday, felt like ****. Bomb out to work this morning, totally fine.

Getting on the freeway yesterday, felt sluggish, down ~.5 psi in boost.


Getting on the freeway this morning, same ramp, felt normal, normal boost.



I don't get it.

11am vs 6am... 70 vs 60... Probably about the same. Normally the car is consistent.

Honestly, one of the things I miss. That NA engine gave zero ****s. But it also gave zero power.

Heat and AC kill the Miata makes it feel like you can't get out of your own way.

Half a pound? Environmental variables, humidity, load are gonna account for way more variation than that in terms of peak boost - and that's assuming you've upgraded enough of the system to actually have accurate boost control.

In "turbo weather" under load I see a totally different peak and ramp rates than I do in the middle of summer with heat soak.
