    My 92 seems to have more power when it's around 20 degrees outside. Not sure why but it sure does run great right now here in Minneapolis.

    Just my amature .02, but normally aspirated engines typically loose some power as air becomes less dense, i.e. higher altitudes. Cold air is denser than warm air. You have more air for a given volume in the cylinders and hense increasing the amount combustion, I would think slightly.

    It is what intercooler's do... Make the air coming into your engine colder and therefore more denser and more power. Only wish i had one though...

    However intercoolers are only good for forced induction. They help to cool the air after it has been compressed. Remember compressing air heats it up. (lets hear it for my technical terms :p )
