I would suppose in Colorado that is true... But in Texas with the 9.3 days of moderately cold weather we have annually, Not so much... Yes, I'll grant that occasionally it does get really cold... Start the car, drive a mile or two to a stop and rob store, leave the heater on flame thrower for three minutes while you run in and tank up on hot chocolate or coffee, and your good to go.... JMO Whats the altitude up there anyways...

I may need to challenge Camaro21 to a race and higher is better....

Yes you will gain a couple inches of head clearance with these as I have these and needed the extra headroom as well and they are perfect.

turbos are much affected just as s/c right??? Turbo's are not nearly as affected by the altitude as are superchargers.... Turbo's just spin faster in the thinner air... Blowers are belt driven...

Yup, T, If you can get a price for four of them... two to the previous zip and two to Kyle.... somewhere in the upper Kenai or wherever he is.... I'm sure whatever the price is it'lll be fine... regardless of if it's two or 22 seats...

The altitude is about 5800 but starts to get worse as it gets warmer, I've seen as much as 9000 DA
