It sounds like an air leak, after the CIS metering plate (or whatever meters the air in your particular car). The un-measured air that's leaking in makes it run lean. You run OK when it's cold, because maybe that's when the cold-start injector is still on, making it back to close to right mixture. I'd wager that this would also account for you only getting base-boost. It's logical on several fronts, so it might actually be the problem. Best place to start, in any case. Dave Hinz
