He may possibly it is true that cold air adds hp and maybe he may push that do to weather conditions being somewhat ideal. I.e. keeping motor cool and temps low and air intake temp nice and chill. Personally no such thing as winter here in miami lol so wouldnt be able to help prove this claim

1996 Mustang GT, 17x9 front and 17x10.5 cobra r replica rims, 255/40/17 front 285/40/17 rear at the moment,
o/r x-pipe flow master 40 series dump downs, cai/ram intake, 75mm c&l throttle body and plenum, pi heads and intake swap, msd wires, stock gears, untuned at the moment, no dyno numbers for now.

Your proof is in the way air responds to temperature. Air molecules are tighter in colder conditions bringing dense air into the engine, ecu recognizes the air is denser pushing more fuel to compensate for the added air, higher content of air and fuel will cause a more efficient burn in the cylinder netting more horsepower. In the winter time you will also notice ur gas mileage won't be as good either because of the same concept.
