I'm seriously thinking about his stg3 e85 tune to try and fix this power loss issue.
you at least have a front mount right?

it actually runs pretty well in the heat even with the stock IC. Of course with a new FMIC it will definitely work better with heat soak, I don't notice THAT much difference. Now, on the rare occasion is it cool and not humid outside (make that very rare), the car is a different machine entirely

altitude, however, kills the performance

I ran my car for a week without a CEL, it seemed to run very rich though.
