    hey I am just wondering if there are any issues or special considerations if I were to boost a d16 and live in a cold weather prone area (WI). I haven't seen any so far but just thought that I would ask. Also please don't flame about the D series, I know there are other engines out there but I have always wondered what could be done with this powerplant.

    The cold will affect a turbo engine the same way it would affect a non-turbo engine. Colder air = higher oxygen density = more power. That's about it.

    Is that all? I was thinking more about mechanically. like on start up or lubrication that sort of thing. I know that if I leave my car out all night it feels "stiff".
