It's just a physics thing, Rob. Though it's been about 35 years since my last physics class, I think it's all about density. Cold air = more dense = more mass. Your turbo will move the same volume of air, but since it's more dense at colder temperatures you're actually cramming more air into the intake. That's about the most butchered explanation I can give. My car positively roars when it's a cool 50 degrees (or less) outside.

Cold air helps, but you've still got a boost problem. Cold outside or not, you should have no problem reaching max boost.
