Sorry Nick, but that's incorrect.

Some of the Dynojets (depending on the software) will add a standard
correction factor for BP, but they do not correct for ambient temperature,
nor do they know (or care) whether the car being run is turbocharged or

Maybe someone else will want to confirm this for me...don't think I'm
going out on a limb here...a drop in ambient temperature of say... 50-60
degrees...just *might* make a teensy-weensy bit of difference...

I could check with the Weather Channel to see what the average temperature
is for late December in Northern Virginia, but I'm almost positive that
it's quite a bit cooler than it is in the summer...

That's why you need to test it before.
