Turbo: What you describe sounds quite normal. Warmer weather detrimentally affects the ability of the intercooler to cool the pressurized air and the boost control unit must therefore lower boost levels to aviod detonation. On a warm summer's day mid way into the orange sounds normal although I've found that cleaning the intercooler both inside and outside may help its efficiency a little.
