    Depends how they are mapped! Once the requested and actual bost get too far out of kilter the turbos will pretty much shut down!
    I was losing at least 80hp in Switzerland last week and was only at 800M! Been up to Davos in it last October and I reckon it was losing about 80ho in the midrange!! Was truly crap!!
    Still fun though and the stories of speeding in Switzerlad and going to prison are nothing to worry about! Dont go mad on the motorways but you never see a copper anywhere else!
    (Guy I know there was working and out with his UK car and it got brken into, local cops did not want to know and told him to report it to the UK police when he got home! )! LOL

    Sorry to seem stupid, but how does it affect the performance, is it to do with the density of the air.
