Default Outside temp and boost

How much does the ambient temp outside effect the amount of boost a wrx makes with a utec and ABC?


It was really hot up here last couple weeks (in the mid 90's) and I couldnt get more than 15psi in 4th, even w/ the abc set to 4 turns out, and the utec at 500 clb.


Today I decided to just put it back to 2 turns (dont make max boost very often) and see what it would make. it was around 67 when I left the house, and it hit 15psi in 2-4, and a hair over 16 in 5th.

Normal?

Thanks,
Jason

It effects it a lot. Day to day, and especially month to month. No worries. If I left my MBC at one setting, I'd run 18 psi in the winter and 11 in the summer. Its normal...
