Hey guys, Im not sure if you would know whats going on, but ive been having some minor issues with my turbo setup. I had a vf11 on my 98 ej222, and it ran great at 7 psi and had plenty of power. i decided to intercool it, and it was easiest to just swap out my vf-11 with a td04 at 5psi. So, at sea level now i hit a fuel cut at 4000 rpm (only at wide open throttle.) i moved to idaho for college, and i live at 5000ft above sea level. when it is super cold outside(below 0) i have tons of power all the way to redline, but now that it is warming up outside, it feels like a parachute gets deployed at 4000 rpm at wot. I thought it had something to do with not getting enough fuel, but im pretty sure that isnt an issue. What do you guys think could be the problem, and why would it be so sensitive to warm air, which should be less dense? Your help/ideas would be greatly appreciated!
