Does the cold effect your SVT?

Is it just me or does it seem like the colder weather make our SVTF alittle faster? I noticed tonight that my SVTF seemed to be a little faster. It's in the middle to low 30s tonight. What do ya'll think?

Yes, the cold makes any car faster, once the engine is warmed up. If the air that is going into the engine is cold, it makes it faster. That's the principal behind the cold air intake.

I have a CAI and I can tell you it makes a difference. Little, but there is a difference. Especially 30* and below weather.

About four degrees here in Michigan. The cold air does make your car feel a little faster.
