    Since it has been rainy and hot around here I have noticed both of my Supercharged cars don't seem to like the humidity. They seem to have lost some power with the higher humidity levels, meanwhile the other two turbo vehicles that I drive don't seem affected.

    I find it interesting that you can really notice it on the supercharged engines and not so much on the turbos.

    I guess there is no solution to the issue but I would sure like to hear from some gear heads on this.

    I agree. With the temp and humidity changes up here in MN, yes I can feel a sure throttle response difference at a minimum. Took it out last night, drop in temp/humidity I thought it was different than the very humid day before. BUT, I was doing some 0-60's practice and it did pretty well as a bottom line on a hot day.
