Some of them have to richen their mixuire in cold weather to keep the temps below max allowed.

If your mixture is on the verge of too lean in warm weather, you could easily sieze the engine in cold weather.
Interesting I always would have thought the extreme weather would have gotten the better end of the deal. I know what you mean though about the denser air that's the reason I put the bigger front mount on my car colder air more power but I guess there's always too cold.
Cheers for that
