Winter boost levels

I know you see higher boost levels in the winter from the colder air, but I'm just wondering what everyone else sees. I'm running the SRL with a 4" turbo back exhaust and I see about 7-10 cruising at 65-70. I can hit 20 lbs very easliy if i'm going up a hill, doesn't go much higher than that, so I don't think it's going to over boost, but just wondering what everyone else sees for numbers. I've also noticed when I use the 8K tow the boost doesn't build nearly as fast. I'm in Maine btw so it is normally in the teens or below outside.

I just put gauges in my ride Friday. I live in Indiana. It's about 30* right now. I'm running about 8-10 at 70 mph. I have SCT X3 and it turned on the Street tune from SCT. When I'm going 60. There is barely any boost at all. Maybe 3-4. I know my 5" MBRP makes it sound like I'm pushing alot more than it really is.
