Don't judge me guys, I live at the beach. Anything in the 30's is cold to me...
Turbos work on pressure ratios. Cold air is more dense, so you actually do get more boost. Not as significant as when you come down off the mountain to sea level, but it is noticeable.

You need to make sure your tunes are on point because if for some reason just one small portion of the tune isnít tweaked enough and youíre getting crazy cylinder pressures or a number of other things I could see lifting a head being an issue.
This is my thought I will be pulling it out to take a look..
