Your car will run much better in cool dry air than in hot humid air, for several reasons.
- The intercooler inlet radiant air is cooler.
- Cool dry air is more dense than hot humid air.
- Water (humidity) does not burn.
- Cooler air to the engine fan keeps the heads cooler.

I use a pocket dyno (accellerometer) as well. They are quite accurate if the input information is precise.
