Living at 4500 ft has frequently have me wondering what kind of performance loss I'm suffering. Does anyone have dyno results from a similar elevation? I know at 4500 ft there's about 15% less air density compared to sea level but maybe that doesn't necessarily translate into 15% loss in horsepower?

I live in Colorado Springs. From previous discussions on this forum, most people agree that @ 3% per 1000 feet elevation is a fairly accurate projection for power loss. So, in your case, you could expect around 14% loss. Sucks...:(
