His though process is correct and I'm sure he did not know that the ECU would compensate thereby suggesting the use of a turbo which will increase atmospheric pressure. The decrease in atmospheric pressure between SD and CO can and will be compensated overtime via the ECU.

At least he was contributing and not being a jerk off! What did you contribute to this thread? Absolutely nothing. FYI: No matter where you go in our atmosphere the gas mixture is the same... Depending on your altitude only the PRESSURE will change.

Maybe you should spend some time in college instead of the auto garage? Just Saying you might want to give it a thought.
