better 0-60, weather permitting

I've noticed that barometric pressure makes the difference on acceleration times, and just power in general. Check your local weather. On days when the barometer is up, the difference is like night and day here in Idaho, which seems to offer extemes in atmopheric pressure levels. Some days, my I6 feels completely gutless, and on other days, wheeeeeee!!!! I completely wasted a BMW sedan in Boise a few weeks ago. That was probably a high-pressure day on the barometer. I know this also affects all of the other cars on the road on the same day, but I've noticed the TB seems to be affected by barometric pressure much more than anything else I've ever owned. This is why it would be nice if someone made a turbo for the Atlas I6 engine.
