Car felt odd this cold morning

So I get up pretty early to go to the gym before work. It was around 5:15am this morning. If anyone lives in Long Island you will know it's a little nippy today (47 degrees this morning). I get in the car (haven't driven it since Friday) and it seems to be very down on power. I checked the charge pipe and diverter valves to see if anything is loose or disconnected. Everything is attached tight and snug. This morning I had an 1/8 of a tank left of my mixed 40% mixed e85/ 93 octane fuel. It seemed very jerky and odd. When i got to work I filled it up with all 93 and switched back to my 93 octane map. I did a quick data log to see if there was a boost leak and everything seemed to be fine. Now it's the afternoon and about 20 degrees warmer and the car seems to be running fine (minus a little hesitancy in the boost but then it comes in strong). Anyone know what's going on? I was excited for the cold weather and the turbos but it seemed to mess with the car a little bit this morning. Did I let the fuel level get too low? Is it one of the fuel pumps?

Whoaaa. Cold. Not. Wait, you don't live in Oceanside or something, because for them, that's PARKA weather!

Yes but I think it might have been due to the 47 degree weather but I'm not sure. The car is starting to feel normal again after a few days but it still doesn't feel 100%.

He mentioned octane maps because he had a 93/e85 mix that requires a different map to run optimal levels of timing/boost, if you are running a 94 map, just make sure to fill up with 94octane and all will be fine, enjoy the added power.

Op any updates? When did you last change plugs/walnut blast
