I just think your density altitude argument is pretty irrelevant to what this guy is talking about. It's minute power decreases in the grand scheme of things. It's not an issue that would cause a car to drive like crap.

I have pretty much zero clue about turbos on cars so I'll take your word there. But this car ain't turbo'd is it? This car at 100F is at the same density altitude as Calgary on a 15C day. We aren't hearing Calgary drivers complaining about their cars driving like garbage on nice spring days. I think you're barking up the wrong tree a bit.

And I hope FL20 is a typo. Theres no such thing.
Back when I was flying we wrote everything!No personal computers for another 15 years!I meant to say over 20000 ft In a lower powered car I used to find 2500 ft of altitude increase was quite noticable but that was also before the complex engine controls of today.
