I asked that question as it relates to ambient weather conditions.
Our weather here in AL has been near 100F and high humidity for 67 days now. If your intercooler is not shrouded in these conditions it will heat soak very quickly, to the point of drastically reducing power and affecting boost.

Your environment is much better so this should not be a problem. The altitude may be a consideration though. If you are running rich under boost the altitude will make the situation worse. Pig rich will also affect boost levels and power. Are your AFR's in good shape?
