Only when the motor gets really hot, at which point it will pull timing to protect itself

Would the difference be noticeable?

So Mike, your saying there wouldn't be any benefit to logging data and running the numbers if there's a significant difference in outside air temp compared to when you first made adjustments to a tune?

I thought for sure I'd have to retune mine in the fall/winter months.

BigDs_C6 If you get your own software or tuner, then you could build a tune for both.

Ian@TheTuningSchool.com You will get better hp and tq number if you were to tune it during the winter. But it you were to tune it during the summer the dyno should be able to give you a correction factor to a standard day.
