Alright. I was thinking about how cold the winters are getting where I live. It gets down to -60 degrees F here a few times in the winters now. How cold of weather can my ECU and fuel system compensate for? I heard that its a 1% power gain every time the temp drops 10 degrees. I don't know if that's accurate, but the idea makes sense.
Lets say my car makes 235 rwhp when its 90 degrees, but then in the winter, the car is operating in 150 degree colder weather at one point when its -60, which would equal a 15% power gain. How much colder air can the car handle?!
Another Idea related to this, So lets say my car CAN safely handle -60 degree weather and the extra oxygen that is consumed in the mixture... During the summer, how much of a dry shot of nitrous
can a stock fuel system and ECU handle? If its going to add 15% power during the summer, that would be a 35 Dry Shot. A 35 dry shot of nitrous would equal the same amount of oxygen as a -60 degree day. WHat do you think?
How cold is too cold? Do manufacturers ever state how cold of temps are too cold for the car to run safely in?
