This is due to the ECU trying to keep power levels even. If you had logs from warmer times on the same setup you could reference you would likely note that your g/sec is very close, despite your boost being lower.

In short, don't change a thing until it get over 60F, or you risk issues you don't want. Slightly lower boost when it's colder out is way better than too much boost once its hot.

Also, as for the pressure drop of a TMIC, your PW has less drop than your OEM one, which will give you more, not less, pressure all things equal.
^^^^^^THIS---He hit it on the head --your iat comp tables are probably limiting your wgdc since the air is cooler right now.
