Turbo though your compressing the air into the motor so your constantly giving it plenty of air so it doesn't struggle nearly as much. Again don't worry about.
I must be tripping myself out, there's definitely a big powerless, not that substantial I guess but definitely noticeable, also once I shift in this elevation my Rpms don't immediately drop like in lower, it will hover for a tad bit mid shift..

Also, my turbo timer is going higher, normal driving it'll stay on for about 45 seconds, up here it's around 1.5 mins, I'm just confused on how the type of air could effect my car like this. (Also around 50 degrees)
