Cold weather...

Well it has its advantages and disadvantages. The disadvantages...its effing cold, lol!! The advantages...warm engines LOVE cold air!! They say you gain about 1% hp for every 10-11 degree F drop in temp from 77 degrees F. So at 30 degrees F, you basically gain about 15-20 hp depending on your individual set-up. And its free!! Nadia has been ripping these past few days here in NJ!! Now just imagine if I had twin turbos...!!

If you had twin turbos that car would probably be put away for the season already haha.

The best thing about spring and fall is the chilly nights for my CSC.

It's addicting

It doesn't snow or anything here but I get high 20's sometimes and 30's a lot in winter and I NEVER put my car "away".

You def have to drive differently with boost when it's cold out. More for the tires than anything. But it is harder to manage that extra 'hit" when it's cold for sure... It's an addiction I can live with!!

I think I'm taking the Camaro to my cousin's house in Monroe. He's got a mid 90's mustang he thinks he's going to make faster than my Camaro.

I left the Camaro at home for now, expecting Ice on roads tonight. Drove the 4X4 Suburban to work.

When it's cold out I'm thinking Spring & Cruising season, and counting down until then.

The only good thing about cold weather is heated car seats. How did I ever live without them?
